The first Waterman I bought was at Office Max. It was in a rotating glass case with other nice pens and it was a good price too. However recently I've gone into Office Max and Office Depot and I haven't seen any Watermans at all! :yikes: Where did you buy your Waterman pens and do you know where you would get them besides online?

I live in Washington State, where it just today became legal to possess small quantities of Watermans for personal use. So I think I'm going to start growing my own fountain pens. Anybody have any Man 100 Patrician seeds?

My 2 local High Street sellers have counter type show cases but every time I visit the counters have been covered in other goods or paperwork. You can't see the pens and have to ask for all the junk to be removed first. Then when you get to them they are 2x net prices.

I was thinking maybe there were Waterman Stores somewhere (like Montblanc stores). What I am trying to find is other Waterman Hemispheres (marble style) both fountain pens and ballpoint but I'm not sure where to look. A lot of them I see online are over 100 dollars and in sets of two and I did not pay that much for the one I have so I am not sure what to do. :mellow: Also if you are looking for a certain pen (as I am for this one) do you post what you are looking for here or is there another spot?

I have used The Pen Shop in the past, well only for two Waterman purchases, and found the staff to be just about OK. Product knowledge was a bit lacking as I was demonstrated the correct way to 'screw' the Edson cap back on (this is going to take a while I thought) to make sure I didnt scratch the nib unit (really!) on realising her error the salesperson assured me that they were threaded at somepoint it must be the new ones that are not! :roflmho:

Check Pen Seller From France in Amazon. Very reasonable prices. Excellent service.
