Pre-Owned Pens: 3080 Waterman Phileas
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present
Price: $29.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 3080: Waterman: Phileas
Waterman scored a huge hit with the Waterman Phileas in the 1990s. It was affordable, reliable and durable. Our latest offering is an earlier edition with a rust-colored vein running through a deep blue that some people refer to as purple. It is right on that line. It looks as if it was used only once. Minimal wear, if any. It comes with a Waterman converter, and it can use standard international cartridges. The two-tone steel nib is marked medium, and it writes a very nice, smooth medium line. 13.5cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 2631 Waterman Edson
Filling Mechanism: Ballpoint
Era: 1980-present
Price: $299.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 2631: Waterman: Edson
Nothing glides along quite as smoothly and comfortably as the gracefully designed Waterman Edson ballpoint pen. The flagship of Waterman luxury pens for nearly a decade, it is easy to see how the translucent sapphire blue and "frosted gold" design of the cap hold one's gaze. The weight and girth of the pen make it a comfortable for hours of writing without cramping. It has some light wear, the worst of which is on the golden nose cone, where the brand new blue ink refill extends and retracts. No deep scars or cracks. 14.5cm.
Vintage Pens: 3032 Waterman 94
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $125.00  Was: $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: 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: 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.
Pre-Owned Pens: 2628 Waterman LeMan
Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Era: 1980-present
Price: $99.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 2628: Waterman: LeMan
One of the most successful models of the 1990s was the Waterman LeMan line of writing instruments. Bold, elegant and authoritative, these items are still in demand. This Waterman LeMan is the first pencil of the line that we've seen in real life. Sporting only light wear, it writes with .5mm leads that you advance with a twist-click of the back cap. It comes preloaded with spare leads and a hardening, partially used erase. 14.4cm.
Vintage Pens: 0511 Waterman C/F
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $19.99
Vintage Pens: 0511: Waterman: C/F
Waterman heralded the disposable cartridge era of fountain pens with its Waterman C/F (Cartridge/Fill) in the 1950s. Although cartridges were first introduced into pens back in the 1910s with glass and clay cartridges, neither was practical. The Waterman C/F used plastic. We include an original 1950s plastic cartridge in this pen! You can refill it using a syringe. We strongly doubt modern cartridges or converters will fit in this pen. The 14k gold nib writes a nice fine line with some feedback. The pen is pretty beat-up looking. Most of the original gold plating is worn off. Heavy scratching and wear covers all of the plastic surfaces. Basically, this is a good user-grade model with which to experiment and expand your vintage pen collection.

Vintage Pens: 1890 Waterman Desk Pen
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $75.00
Vintage Pens: 1890: Waterman: Desk Pen
Everyone's got an empty base with no pen, but we've got the rare Waterman Desk Pen with no base! Restored with a new ink sac, this Waterman desk pen features a black hard rubber taper and exceptionally large section. The barrel is a black and pearl with some discoloration. Polish took out the worst of the chocolate hazing. There are remarkably few scratches or marks of wear. No cracks! The imprint is strong, and it lists the pen as made in Canada. The 14k gold nib is marked "Med. Rigid." It is definitely rigid, and more of a fine to fine-medium. Click the headline to see more. 20cm capped.
