The Waterman Concorde 1971 to 1978. It’s a faceted pen with six sides to the barrel and a more complicated arrangement of two curves joined by two facets on the cap. The angled cap top with the inset clip is very much of its time, and is a feature that is seen in some other pens. The snap-on cap is removed to reveal a very handsome wraparound 18 carat nib. It is filled with a squeeze converter.(Included)
the Concorde Fountain Pen – created to reflect the same aesthetic design as the iconic, identically named, airliner - was the venerable Waterman's flagship pen
The Concorde is a British–French turbojet-powered supersonic passenger airliner that was operated from 1976 until 2003. It had a maximum speed over twice the speed of sound, at Mach 2.04 (1,354 mph or 2,180 km/h at cruise altitude), with seating for 92 to 128 passengers. First flown in 1969, Concorde entered service in 1976 and operated for 27 years. It is one of only two supersonic transports to have been operated commercially; the other is the Soviet-built Tupolev Tu-144, which operated in the late 1970s.
