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.

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.

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: 2636 Waterman 54
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $149.99
Vintage Pens: 2636: Waterman: 54
Fans of flexi writers have settled on vintage Waterman pens from the 1920s as the best pens of that era. The Waterman 54 is one of the larger pens from that brand and era. This one is about as long as the oversized competition, but it is only about as wide as a standard-size competitors. This one has two gold-plated bands around the chased black hard-rubber barrel. The tail band is engraved on two lines: "R. A. Jewell. / Fairfield, Me." No cracks, scratches or other serious damage mars the cap or barrel. It does have more chocolate hazing on the barrel than the cap. The 14k gold nib is not an original Waterman nib, but it is a semi-flex stub Warranted size 4 nib! 13.7cm capped.
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.
