Remex

What little I have been able to discover about the Remex is this:  it was a line of low-priced pens made by Waterman which allowed them to play in the field of low-cost pens without getting any mud on their valuable name.  I have yet to find any mention of a Canadian division of the operation, but we must assume there was one, because my sole example of their work was made in St. Lambert, Quebec (site of Waterman’s Canadian plant, co-incidentally enough); like the Canadian end of most US pen makers, it was likely a way to get the pens into the UK without paying so much in duty, and the fact that people in Canada also bought pens was just a tiny bonus.

Models I’ve examined:
