Vintage Pens: Waterman 100 Year Pen
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.
