I'm really pleased with my new bronze metris...I hadn't seen one in real life due to lockdown but was pleased with it when it arrived. The blue face is really dark...almost black.....but contrasts really well with the bronze case and numerals. The standard leather strap was a little disappointing in colour and fit but £25 for a black steel bracelet and it now looks and feels great!!
I love this pen...perfect weight. Perhaps I would like a more chunkier one soon....still experimenting before i make a bigger purchase
As a large fan of dive watches, this mechanical promaster variant in titanium, does not disappoint. Exceptionally light, form, fit and function, absolutely fantastic. Much better attention to detail ( indices and rotating bezel alignment with chapter ring) than some Seiko comparable models.
Seemingly on paper a large watch, wears very well, not conspicuous at all in my 5 Ft 7 inch opinion. Great lime, long lasting and running at constant +10 seconds a day.
Definitely recommend this watch and the excellent customer experience of Iguana Sell.
A very nice fountain pen feels very nice in the hand, comes well presented with a bottle of ink to start you off. I was kept fully informed of the progress of my order and as such I have ordered a second fountain pen.
This is my 2nd watch purchase from Iguana Sell. Due to unfortunate circumstances beyound Iguana Sells hands, I was kept in contact regarding the delivery of my P51 Mustang watch. Heavy snow as well as teething problems due to Brexit delayed delivery, but I have become quite patient over the past few months. The watch is amazing Avi-8 have surpassed themselves. I love the aviation theme previously buying their automatic Spitfire watch.
It is a lovely clear simple classic quality watch. Which is s joy to wear with s nice long strap.
I’d been intending to get an Aurora Optima with stub nib for some time but couldn’t decide on a colour. I knew it would probably be a limited edition ......... when this one popped up on the Winter Sale it seemed as though fate had made the decision for me and in the main I’ve got no regrets.
The pen is smaller and lighter than many of the others I own but it’s well balanced in the hand. The stub nib gives a finer line than other higher-end 1.3mm gold stubs in my collection and can be very slightly scratchy on some (good) papers. I’m still looking for the perfect ink to pair with it, though my feeling is that with further use the nib should settle down nicely, since it generally flows well.
The pen isn’t quite perfect for me yet but I’m happy to own it and to spend a bit more time getting used to it. I’ve deducted one star from the rating because of the way dark ink colours show through the barrel. Service from Iguana Sell was excellent, with good communication and fast delivery despite the pandemic.
Great writing experience (as always with ST Dupont writing instruments)
Wonderful pen, very smooth. Customer service from Iguanasell excellent and pen arrived within I day from Madrid to UK. Can’t get better than that.
Fabulous pen, very swift delivery - and best of all, Iguansell covers customs charges to the UK, so the price on the website is what you pay! Altogether excellent!
I already own a pelikan m600, my favourite pen. I bought this for my organiser, slightly smaller and fine nib for the thinner lines. The pen looks stunning, great quality apart from the nib which felt very scratchy and irritating to use. I managed to fix it my self by polishing it with micro mesh. Writes fine now, but at this price I don’t expect to have to fix quality control issues myself, it should be just perfect out of the box.
I’m really happy with the service I had. You have answered all my emails as soon as possible. Sure I will buy from you again
Great product, allows me more flexibility in changing inks.
Excellent product and was worry about it being blue. It allows carry and store my fountain pen collection discreetly in a protective case.
Very functional used to house my 2 MB 146 with different nibs. Allows to me to use the FP discreetly.
Watch is very nice but strap is very hard, cheap and uncomfortable. Cuts into wrist. Also isn’t long enough for a normal wrist.
Beautiful pen, smooth writer. Just as you’d expect from a Pelikan. I have several m200s and m400s, most of them Medium nibs, so I got this pen with a Fine nib, and I think it’s absolutely perfect. Still wet, but fine enough that I can write small without a problem.
One thing to note, the material on the body seems like it may be prone to staining. Got some blue ink on the barrel while filling the pen (Troublemaker Inks Abalone) and it didn’t wash off simply with water, as it would with most other pens. I had to wash it with Dawn and even then there is still a small blue stain.
So please note if you do get this pen, be mindful as you fill it, as to avoid the hassle of stain removal.
Writing with Pelikan 200 fountain pen gives you a pleasure.
Beautiful pen to look and to feel in your hand.
Beautiful smooth writer that is a pleasure to use. Light but sturdy in construction with beautiful tone to the resin. A beauty to add to my collection, and with such great prices, I can see that iguanasell and I are going to become fast friends. Iguanasell delivered first class service, polite and cheery, even over the frantic festive period. I look forward to shopping with you again.
