Vintage Pens: 4353: Waterman: 0552 1/2
Heaven is a place on earth when you have this Waterman 0552 1/2 fountain pen on your desk. If you didn't know better, New York's old Waterman factory was up and producing pens today, when judging by this set of vintage writing instruments. No scratches nor dents on either instrument. The pen has a working ink sac. Its only flaw is a little chocolate hazing between the overlay and section on the barrel. The trefoil overlay is 18k gold filled. The matching pencil works, advancing lead from the nose cone. Under the tail end are spare leads. The pen's 14k gold nib writes an extra-fine to flexi line that measures nearly 1.5mm. Pen measures 13.4cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 4340 Waterman LeMan Briarwood
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $249.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 4340: Waterman: LeMan Briarwood
With all of its ink stains and discoloration, it might be hard to believe this pen is shear writing perfection, but it is. The cosmetic flaws quickly fade away in your mind the second you put pen to paper with our Waterman LeMan Briarwood edition. At one time this was the top of the line for Waterman luxury pens, and the writing experience explains why. Its 18k gold nib glides with heavenly smoothness over the page. Fill the pen using either standard international cartidges or a Waterman converter (Our spare generic standard international converters didn't fit inside the barrel.), but unfortunately this preowned pen comes with neither. Although its cap closes securely enough, it has lost its snap-sound. Click the headline for a close-up. 14.3cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4328: Waterman: 32
Not every vintage pen is destined to be beautiful. Some work hard all of their lives and it shows, but that doesn't mean they are ready to be decommissioned. Proven workers deserve an opportunity to continue to shine, even if they don't look that great. Our Waterman 32 fountain pen is one such pen. The clip and cap band are shot, as far as looks go. No cracks ruin the early plastic cap and barrel, but there are plenty of marks of wear. Its 14k gold #2 nib still writes a nice fine line with a hit of feedback. You'll find it is fairly firm, but you can tweak a little flourish out of it. We restored it with a new ink sac. 12.6cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4274 Waterman Gothic Silver
Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Price: $125.00
Vintage Pens: 4274: Waterman: Gothic Silver
Our Waterman Gothic Sterling Silver pencil is soooo 1920s. The "Gothic" checker board pattern really stands out. This is a new old stock pencil in mint condition with minimal wear. It uses 1.1mm lead. Twist the nose cone to advance the lead. Twisting it the other way withdraws the mechanism but not the lead, which needs to be pushed back in. This appears to be a design feature. Spare leads are under the silver blind cap in the back. 13cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4273 Waterman Sheraton
Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $125.00
Vintage Pens: 4273: Waterman: Sheraton
Roaring back into the light from the 1920s is this sterling silver Waterman pencil with the Sheraton design. It is new old stock with minimal traces of wear. The lead advances with a twist of the plastic nose cone. None of these pencils actually retracts the lead when twisting the other way. It needs to be pushed in. However, the lead seems pretty snug in the pencil. Unscrew the tail cap to reveal the spare leads. 13.1cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4276 Waterman Floral Pattern
Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $125.00
Vintage Pens: 4276: Waterman: Floral Pattern
Once there was a time when people really went all out classing up their pencils! Our 1920s Waterman pencil has a great golden sleeve with floral-like pattern climbing the sides. Twist the black-plastic nose cone to advance a 1.1mm lead. Unscrew the tail piece to find spare leads. We think this pencil is new old stock or damned close to it. Looks nearly flawless to us. Only the clip is marked "18k Filled". 13.1cm.
Vintage Pens: 4277 Waterman Plain Golden Pencil
Filling Mechanism: 1.1mm)
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $125.00
Vintage Pens: 4277: Waterman: Plain Golden Pencil
New Old Stock. We got this Waterman pencil from a collection of mostly stickered new pens from the 1920s. No dents, minimal wear. It looks brand new. This vintage pencil is not marked for any gold content. The mechanism pushes out lead, but it doesn't seem to retract lead. Instead the barrel is very snug on the leads, which don't come out. Spare leads are in the tail piece that looks like where an eraser should be. 13.2cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 4120 Waterman Carene Deluxe
Filling Mechanism: Ballpoint
Era: 1980-present
Price: $99.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 4120: Waterman: Carene Deluxe
Even base-model Waterman Carene ballpoint pens look great, but their Waterman Carene Deluxe counterparts dazzle with their gold-plated tail caps. Our pre-owned luxury pen sports a forest-green barrel that contrasts handsomely with the golden cap. Our preowned luxury pen is in great working order, but it has some light to moderate wear on the barrel. No cracks, no dents. The green barrel has some light scratches and wear that you can feel more than see in some lighting conditions. Few people would likely see it as you write with it, but it is there if you look under bright lights. Included is a working blue refill that extends and retracts when you twist the tail cap. 13.9cm.
