The remarkable history of Waterman Waterman was founded in 1883 by Lewis Edson Waterman. Lewis founded the company after he had invented their now-famous fountain pen. The idea for this came about when he wanted to sign an important contract with a customer, but the fountain pen started leaking. While he was busy getting a new pen, the customer went with a rival. This provided reason enough for Waterman to produce a new fountain pen. To this day, Waterman is known for its continuous innovation, which allows its writing instruments to provide optimal writing comfort. The French style of Waterman The pen manufacturer's current name, Waterman Paris, demonstrates where the inspiration for the design and innovation of the writing instruments comes from: Paris.
