What a beauty, HJB and how nicely you put it to work already. May I ask where you got it from?

 

A seller on eBay accepted my offer.  I couldn't be more pleased --it writes like a dream, and looks good, too!

That looks like my kind of writer --sharp thin lines and bold heavy lines.  Nice!

Well, I know it is a bit late for this thread but I have just taken delivery of my one and only Waterman Expert in an amazing green marble. It was advertised as an Expert I but it appears to be an Expert II. Very pleased.

How could I have left out my most valuable Watermans? I guess it's 'cause I keep them locked up in a safety deposit box.

I have a particular liking for Waterman, so far these but I hope only the start:

 

  • Hemisphere - Stainless Steel. my EDA for the last 12 or so years & still going strong.
  • Commando - nice nib, needs a new feed though.
  • Thorobred - waiting for this to arrive in the post...come on Postie..

I've got a couple of Laureat (a blue marble & a brown marble) and a stainless steel Hemisphere. I couldn't get any joy from the Hemisphere with Waterman ink - it skipped very annoyingly and was a poor starter too.
Then, I happened to pop some Montblanc Daniel Defoe special edition in it and it's been great all week! Let's face it, the ink cost almost as much as the pen so I'm not sure it's a permanent or cost effective fix, but I had to do something with the ink in the Montblanc Classique before I sent it for a nib exchange, and the ink bottle was at home. A great result for me so I'll give it a dollop of Mystery Black next week and see how that goes.

Just the same problem the rest of us have!


Does the color of the ink stain on your fingers give others a window into the depth of your soul, or did you just forget to wear gloves?  Unknown.

My 2 new watermans, the charleston was unused, and writes great.
The carene was used, but mint condition. Just cleaned it out and boy was the ink dry, but is clean now and write great.
Happy camper right now. Noticed cant tell nib size on carene, where is it under the nib?
Both are supposed to be fine.

I have a black Waterman Harmonie. I've owned it for 15+ years, and used it nearly every working day for that time.  I think I lost it twice, and found it again 6 months or more later (usually in the jacket pocket of a suit that hadn't been worn in some time).  It needs to be cosmetically refurbished. 

 

I also have a Waterman Hemisphere, but it is relegated to backup duty. 

 

These are fantastic pens.  I like the heavy weight and diameter in my hand.  Once the ink is flowing, it feels like writing on silk.  I take a lot of notes in my career, so I can interview someone for 2-3 hours without my hand getting tired.
