Pre-Owned Pens: 1550: Waterman: Edson
Waterman Edson fountain pens are the pinnacle of the brand's of design and performance. Easily our favorite model of the Waterman line. This one shows a little wear, as you can see when you click the headline font. Nevertheless, it writes very well. The thick grip helps to keep your hand from cramping. The inlaid 14k gold nib writes a very nice medium line. As is pretty normal with these pen boxes, they are having issues. The pen comes with both its inner and outer boxes. It also comes with a converter. 15.1cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 1947 Waterman C/F Set
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $39.99
Vintage Pens: 1947: Waterman: C/F Set
Waterman hit the market in 1955 with the first modern-era plastic cartridge pen. It was called the Waterman C/F (Cartridge Fill). This is a complete Waterman C/F pen and pencil set still in its box. The pencil advances lead with a twist of its tail, but it needs pressure to help retract the lead. It features some light wear. The vintage pen's cap and barrel also show wear from use. The most noticeable wear is near the nib where gold-plated trim on either side shows heavy brassing. The original 14k gold nib writes a buttery smooth medium line! The only problem is that these pens do not take modern Waterman cartridges or converters. You will have to find an old one that still fits that you can refill fill a syringe. Made in Canada. Pen measures 13.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 1937 Waterman 452
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 1937: Waterman: 452
Vintage pen fanatics, try not to ruin your keyboard by drooling over it. Our Waterman 452 with Sterling Silver filigree is as close to minty fresh as a 90-year-old pen can get. NO chips, dents or cracks. Powerfully strong imprints on the silver and the tail 452. The side-tail imprint is a little faded in parts. Two silver bolts are where the clip would be, but there is no clip. There are some light scratches in the silver and around the BHR where the cap screws onto the barrel. We restored this pen with a new ink sac. The original inkfeed and 14k gold nib writes a razor sharp extra fine to a nearly 2mm triple broad! BEFORE YOU GET TOO EXCITED about the nib, you will need to spend some serious time training the nib and adjusting to its characteristics. It is rather stiff for a flexi nib, but with lots of time, practice and effort you can both train it to write more the way you want it to, and you can learn what it won't let you train. Take it easy and go slowly with it. 13.7cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 1939 Waterman 100 Year Pen
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $79.99
Vintage Pens: 1939: Waterman: 100 Year Pen
Waterman's Hundred Pen was predicted to last 100 years! Sadly, most of these beautiful pens did not last long. The celluloid tops and bottoms began to kraze. Our pen is a junior size that is remarkably well preserved! We have not touched the red celluloid and doubt the last owner did. In the photo, you can see a tiny chip missing near the pocket clip bolt. If you turn the cap around, you can see only a hint where the rest of the cap meets the red that a bit of krazing might be starting...or might have started and arrested years ago. There are some scratches and a little wear but not bad. The lip of the cap looks as if it has a crack, but we don't feel it when running the lip over a thumbnail. We restored the pen with a new ink sac. Its original 14k gold nib writes a firm fine line. Technically, the nib has flex, but it doesn't write like it. It will take a lot of training to make it flexi. Click the headline for photos. 11.9cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 1904 Waterman 512

Era: 1940-1949
Price: $69.99
Vintage Pens: 1904: Waterman: 512
Click the headline photo and look very closely. Our Canadian Waterman 512 appears to be a very dark burgundy. Look at how the section is a true black. The pen looks black in most lights, but this close up shows a different story. We have fully restored this pen with a new ink sac. The lever box is in good condition, and there are no cracks anywhere on the pen. The imprint is strong. Unfortunately, you can also see a lot of wear on the pen. There is a ring where the cap had been repeatedly posted. A few little scratches and blemishes also mar the pen's handsome features. Luckily, its heart and soul are sound. The original 14k gold nib writes a firm but smooth fine line. Zero Flex. 12.9cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 1903: Waterman: 503
Celluloids woke up in the 1940s with some vibrant pearlescent colors, such as this butterscotch Waterman 503. Aside from its sharp late art-deco stylings, we really notice how Waterman shed its lever box on these 503 fountain pens. This fountain pen has been fully restored with a new ink sac. No cracks, light wear and strong imprint! Only the lever shows any brassing. The top bolt is steel, while the clip is gold plated. Its 14k nib writes a firm fine line. The pencil is in good working order with more wear on the nose cone, which is the part that twists to advance and retract 1.1mm lead. Made in Canada.

Vintage Pens: 1902: Waterman: 301-V
One of the more popular color combos of the 1930s was grey and red. Sheaffer and Parker also had that combo. This Waterman 301-V was a handy "vest" pen in a handsome grey and red. There are even really dynamic ripples of layers within the grey. This is a rarer Canadian model. We restored it with a fresh ink sac. The 2a nib is made of 14k gold and writes a razor sharp extra-fine line with a little flex. The clip locks into the top of the flat cap with a hexagonal shape. No cracks, light wear, sharp imprints. 10.9cm capped.

Incredible ivory pearl celluloid salutes the uniforms and femininity of nurses during World War II is this Waterman Nurse's Pen. Fully restored, this pen retains incredible color clarity.

The rest of the pen is in great shape. The cap and barrel do have some wear, but you really can't see it through the incredible design of the ivory pearl celluloid. This is a Canadian Waterman.
