I would be glad if someone can help me identify this waterman.

Also, is the "converter" removable or repairable? Thanks!!!

Looks like soms sort of squeeze converter. Seller does not seem to know, probably does not even know how to operate it. So you might be in luck, and find it still functioning. Or the sac in it might be leaking, in that case it is useless.

These things should be removable, although I beleive the Parker P51 had one of these non-removable.

I might have seen one or two on a Waterman, but these are not common. So I am not sure if these are current size or old size (CF-pen size)

Hi Albus,
That isn't a converter. That's Waterman's X-pen which is a capillary filler, the company's response to the Parker 61.

No it's not !
You can't open an X-pen ... you just need to let it dip in the ink.
This is an X-pen :

The one on Ebay seems to be known as a "Ligne 60" model to me (not sure it has another name).

Thanks all for the help!

I would still be glad if someone can positively identify it, I do not think it is an x pen.

I think the pen looks quite nicely done maybe I will purchase it.

Strange French converter - needs to be replaced with a new one if it doesn't work.

I have two pens like that.
First with nib nr 3 is bigger like pens with nib nr 2.
I haven't original French strange converter, but standard long Waterman's cartrige is good. Wrap the tape, because it has a small diameter and is loose.

No, it's not the same, this is the old one! For me it's the same format as the Waterman CF.
