Era: 1930-1939
Price: $149.99
Vintage Pens: 3032: Waterman: 94
The 1930s saw the rise of beautiful marbled grey designs with red flecks. This Waterman 94 is a full-size fountain pen (not oversized) and an excellent sample of Depression-era pens. No cracks and only light wear with a few little marks and scratches here and there, the vintage pen has been fully restored with a new ink sac. The imprint on the barrel and tail are very strong. The original 14k gold Waterman #4 nib writes a smooth extra-fine line with a little flex. Not a wet noodle, just a pleasant semi-flex. Click the headline for a close-up of the nib. 12.3cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 3027 Waterman LeMan 200

Pre-Owned Pens: 3027: Waterman: LeMan 200
Celebrating its 100th anniversary in operation, Waterman released this stunning vintage designed modern luxury pen in a "cocobolo" design. Waterman LeMan 200 pens, such as this one, are more slender than their LeMan 100 counterparts. In beautiful condition, it shows very little wear. It is far more durable due to its brass foundation in both the barrel and cap. It comes with a two-tone 18k gold nib that writes a nice fine line. We feel as if the line is "sharp," a little like a pencil, but it writes nicely. It uses standard international cartridges and converters--but comes with neither. 13.9cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 3025 Waterman Gentleman
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present
Price: $99.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 3025: Waterman: Gentleman
Modern Waterman pens of the 1980s and '90s look so similar at times that we have a little trouble identifying them. Take this handsome slightly-darker-than royal blue and gold wonder. It is nearly he exact same size and shape of a slender Waterman LeMan 200. But! It has gold-plated end caps and a thinner cap band. Thus it is a Waterman Gentleman. In any event, it is a very attractive with only one tiny, thin 1mm scratch on the barrel. The cap snaps open and closed with a solid snap. It uses standard international cartridges and converters but comes with neither. The 18k gold nib writes a very nice, smooth European fine line. (That's code for potentially fine-medium for some folks. ;) 14cm capped.

Pre-Owned Pens: 3024: Waterman: LeMan 100
Celebrating its first one hundred years in business, Waterman released the LeMan 100 fountain pen. More successful than its 100-Year Pen in the 1930s and 1940s, this is the oversized version of the modern pen. The two-tone 18k gold nib sports the company's early globe logo with the word "Ideal." Made from a brass foundation in its cap and barrel, the pen is more durable than many other luxury pens. Although it looks perfect in the photos, there is a lot of dull wear on the black lacquer finish. We polished it, but if you look at it just right under the lights, it looks as if there are finger prints spots. Of course, nobody will see that at arm's length, but it is there for those distracted by such things. The cap closes securely, but it lacks the snap and pop of its youth. This pen had to be someone's daily user at some point. We gave it a fresh Waterman converter. It also uses standard international ink cartridges. The nib writes a VERY smooth extra fine line. 14.4cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 2909: Waterman: Ink Vue, Type 1
Fountain pen competition was red hot in the 1930s. Waterman was still in its hey-day and scrapping with the new Parker Vacumatic. Instead of reinventing the wheel, Waterman achieved the see-through hollow barrel effect by reverting to a variation of the bulb-filling system. A hinged two-piece lever compresses an ink sac bulb in the tail of the pen. Once you pump it about a half dozen times, it fills the pen completely with ink. A breather tube helped to fill the pen more completely. It was advertised as cheaper and less mechanically complicated than its rivals. This one is a senior sized model and has been completely restored. Good barrel clarity, light to moderate wear and only a little brassing on the chrome plating. Strong imprint. The original inkfeed and 14k gold nib write a fine line with some flex. 13cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 2908: Waterman: 452.5 V (tc)
Waterman rarities are lots of fun. Originally listed in the 1925 catalog, this Waterman 452 1/2 V (tc) is both a hard-to-find sterling silver pattern AND really hard-to-find cap. The (tc) stands for "Telescoping Cap." While in a normal short cap position, it looks a little like a safety filler. However, with the cap extended to full length and posted on the tail, the pen is a slender but full-sized pen at about 5 3/4-inches or 14.5cm. Our vintage pen has been fully restored with a new ink sac. Click the headline for a great close up of its 14k gold #2 nib. Naturally, the nib has FLEX from a very smooth XF to 1mm. It isn't a wet noodle, but it has respectable flex. The pen has elegant initials, but they seem to blend into the pattern, which looks like tall grasses in the summer. There is a little dent near the tail, but it, too, blends into the look of the pen. 9cm capped.

Pre-Owned Pens: 2300: Waterman: Laureat
Waterman Laureat pens look like they are all business with their modern semi-industrial design. This one has a finish similar to titanium. It has some light to moderate wear from use and comes with a new standard international converter. (It also takes like cartridges.) Click the headline for close ups. The nib shows some heavy pitting on parts of the surface. it is a golden alloy or plated steel. Surprisingly, the nib writes a smooth fine line! Great for a daily user. 13cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 2629 Waterman LeMan
Filling Mechanism: Ballpoint
Era: 1980-present
Price: $125.00
Pre-Owned Pens: 2629: Waterman: LeMan
It is a shame that Waterman discontinued its line of LeMan luxury pens. Elegance and near perfect construction make for a nicely weighted and balanced ballpoint pen. It is wide enough that you can write all day without it being too big or small. We installed a new Waterman refill. It advances and retracts with a twist of the tail cap. 14cm.
