The Man 100 was a great success, encouraging Waterman to continuously expanded the line, adding new materials and finishes. In 1985, Waterman introduced the Opera, with its machine turned guilloche finish, a nod to early chased hard rubber pens. The first of several limited editions based on the Man 100 was released in 1985, an edition of 5,000 solid sterling silver pieces. Two of three wood models, in briar and
Macassar wood, were released in 1987, with olive wood following in 1988.
