Waterman Hundred Year Pen, Green OS
Posted 04 March 2010 - 11:43
So now that I have it, what do I think? First, it does look as cool as I thought. If I had to choose just one pen to look at, well, honestly, it would be my Wall Street LE. But this is close behind! Second, the nib is great. Smooth and appropriately wet, with just a hint of feedback. Third, lever filling is not my ideal method, but this works fine. I did manage to jam the end of the lever pretty hard under my thumbnail, so I'm hoping I don't have to fill it too often. Finally, people keep using the word "oversize" in referring to certain pens. Having noticed my tastes creep steadily towards wider sectioned pens, I think that word doesn't mean what they think it means. Pictures below show the Waterman between my 149 and 1000. Doesn't look so "oversized" now, does it?

100 Year nibs, and their Emblem equivalents, are exceptionally nice writers.
Oversize for the time, and in comparison to the other 100 Year models.
Very nice pen, with great color. I'm sure you're enjoying it greatly.

Great clarity of colour.
I was looking at one with the amber top but some bugger beat me to it!
Enjoy enjoy for a hundred years!
Love and work... work and love, that's all there is.
(there was a man who obviously never knew fountain pens!)

I have a couple standard sized 100 Year Pens and Emblems. I find them to be excellent pens and I enjoy writing with them so much. I have lusted after a 100 Year OS for many moons. Congrats on yours. I am now motivated to keep up my search for one.
