Waterman

Waterman gave birth to the modern fountain pen in 1884 in New York City. Lewis Edson Waterman invented the first viable inkfeed for mass production that year, after a faulty pen ruined an insurance deal he was about to make. His 3-fissure inkfeed started a pen empire that still survives to this day. There was an A.A. Waterman pen company, too, but 99.9% of the vintage pens on this site are derived from the L.E. Waterman founding. The modern Waterman pen company is now owned by Sanford brands, which is in turn owned by Newell-Rubbermade.

All of them are quite capable of working, though their refills might have dried out. The big caveat is that all of them have some kind of corporate engraving or logo on them to showcase how a company could order these pens tricked out for their organization. Still these are all ballpoints, rollerballs, pencils and even a couple fountain pens for less than $5 a piece! No returns. No refunds. You even get to keep the black leather folio these pens come in. Talk about a great garage sale find?!

Not necessarily rare, Waterman LeMan fountain pens are highly sought luxury pens. Elegant, smooth, dependable...what's not to love. Our preowned pen is in excellent condition with only minimal wear from use. It also includes its box and converter. Especially nice is its two-tone 18k gold nib. You will write a very smooth medium line with it. One of the things we really like about these lux pens compared to other brands is that it has a brass barrel and cap under the black lacquer. It won't shatter when you drop it. 14.3cm capped.

Harkening back to 1920s black hard rubber with "chasing" designs, this Waterman LeMan Opera fountain pen is a stunningly handsome modern luxury pen. The cap and barrel are in nearly perfect condition. The gold-plated trim has just a little schmutz and wear on the tail end. Click the headline for close-ups. Its two-tone 18k gold nib writes a nice fine-medium line. It is a soft nib that responds to light pressure, but this is not a conventional semi-flex nib. The thin 18k gold is easily sprung. The pen includes a box and papers. 14.4cm capped.

Pre-Owned Pens: 5860: Waterman: Carene Deluxe
Moxie the cat is helping to model this handsome Waterman Carene Deluxe rollerball pen. It has a bronze barrel and vermeil cap. In this case, vermeil is a silver plated cap that has been plated over in gold. It is one of the less common Carene models. There are no dents or long, deep scratches. There are a few very short shallow scratches and other marks of light wear. Happily enough, these preowned luxury pens take regular Waterman rollerball refills AND Pilot G2 gel refills. This one sports a blue G2! There is just enough weight in the pen to really make it write smoothly with some gentle momentum. These are among our favorite rollerball pens.

And you can see in the nib photo that the section trim is a little spotted and scratched. 14.2cm capped.
