Pre-Owned Pens: 3188 Mont Blanc Watch
Filling Mechanism: Hand Wind
Branching out a bit, we are offering this genuine Montblanc Watch for a close Montblanc-collecting friend of ours. It is a Swiss made time piece. It is hand-wound, the good old-fashioned way. Our favorite detail is its winding meter at the top of the face, which lets you know how many hours are left before the spring is wound down. You can get a full 40 hours per wind, according to its meter. On the bottom of the face is a second hand and dial. This friend wore this watch in his rotation, and it has a little wear, but there are no scratches in the crystal. It seems to keep good time, but we are not watch experts or restoration people. We are selling it on good faith that all is well, and it is sold as-is, no returns.
Vintage Pens: 3169 Esterbrook 444 Dipless Pen
Filling Mechanism: Dip
Give your bed-and-breakfast, church or small business a classic vibe with a dip pen to sign the register. The pen is called "dipless" because its holder is an inkwell, and you have to dip it less because it always rests in ink. The dip/holder is an inkwell that keeps the pen wet and ready to fill out a check or other brief writing experience. The glass base is New Old Stock. The black cover has its original price sticker. It has not seen ink, as the instructions are still under the black part, which you must pry off to fill. The pen is dip only, and it comes complete with an upgraded 2968 nib, which we haven't dipped as it also appears to be NOS. Click the headline for a close-up photo. Complete with original box and instructions!
Pre-Owned Pens: 2942 Marlen Collezione Vite
Filling Mechanism: Key/Slot Filler
Looking to vintage pens for inspiration, the Marlen Collezione Vite fountain pen uses a key or slot filling system. Basically, you need a little key to depress the pressure bar resting against the ink sac. The keyhole is in the brass plate of the pen's barrel. The key is cleverly disguised as the pocket clip! Just unscrew the top of the cap to free it. This pen appears to have never been used outside of a dip or two. The ink sac is in good working order. The 18k gold nib writes a firm medium line with a dash of feedback, particularly on the ascenders of loops. 13cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2904 LeBoeuf #8
Filling Mechanism: Sleeve Filler
If you are really looking to dazzle at the next pen club meeting or impress your friends online, how about this ultra rare oversized LeBoeuf #8 vintage pen. One of the first companies to perfect celluloid pen production, this model from the very early 1930s is an impressive light ivory color with a butterscotch vein running through it. It has a few spots of discoloration, but it is in much better condition than a lot of early ivory celluloids. Fill the pen by sliding the entire barrel back to reveal a fully restored squeeze bar system. No cracks in the celluloid, light wear, some brassing on the clip. The original 14k gold nib sports a crack running from the section up to the 8. Click the headline for a close-up. The nib writes a dry, extra-fine line well without pressure but gets scratchy in a hurry when you add any pressure. 13cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2905 LeBoeuf #8
Filling Mechanism: Sleeve Filler
Among the most sought vintage pens are oversized LeBoeuf pens...such as this one. Although there is some speculation about LeBoeuf being the first company to successfully create fountain pens using celluloid tubing (not rod stock), there is no denying the stunning beauty of their early efforts! Fully restored with a new ink sac and all of its original parts, this is a sleeve filler. The back half of the barrel slides back to reveal what Parker fans might think of as an aerometric squeeze filler. Its pearl-and-black design is in amazingly good condition with a few spots of discoloration you see in the photo. (Click headline for close-ups.) No cracks! A little clip brassing. There is a deep scratch around the tail and a wear mark where the lip of the cap rests against the barrel. Otherwise, only light wear. The large size 8, 14k gold nib writes a medium line with a slightly flattened tip that gives it some line variation! Technically, it even has a tiny bit of flex. 13.4cm capped.
