As I mentioned in my introduction, my wife bought me a Muji fountain pen, and that served as a catalyst to bring me back to fountain pens. However, the first pen I bought on my own after rediscovering them was a Waterman "Expert." I am really enjoying discovering its characteristics.

I just have one, a fine point Phileas fountain pen in the older red marble design.  My collection is pretty small, and so far I've been looking more at getting a variety of brands than a variety of models within a single brand.


My FPs: Waterman Phileas, Namiki Vanishing Point, Pelikan Pharo, Cartier Diabolo, Jinhao 250, Jinhao 250, Parker Sonnet, Pelikan P200, Parker IM, Pilot Prera, Monteverde Impressa, Pilot Metropolitan, Pilot Plumix
Some Non-FPs: Cartier Diabolo BP, Cross Century BP, Fisher Bullet Space Pen BP; Pilot FriXion RB, Pentel EnerGel-X RB; Uni Kuru Toga MP, Paper Mate PhD Multi MP/BP, Paper Mate Clear Point MP; Shaeffer and Manuscript calligraphy pens

I now have two carene, and I really love the coral red one. But I am trying to collect the le man 100 green wood because it is so pretty. The design of waterman is just marvelous.

Vintage Watermans are my favorite.  Hard Rubber especially.  I try to collect as many 52's as possible and have around 10 in different configurations, normal, small, ringtop, cardinal red, RMHR, BCHR, and a blue tan marbled celluloid one.  12PSF, 55 BHR, 54 BCHR, 94, Emblem pen, 515, Commando, Moss Agate - Lady Patricia, 92, and 3V.  2 Man 100 black, 2 Man 100 Opera.  A 351? which I can't find any information on.  Plus a bunch of broken ones that I use for parts.  That's about it.  All of them have excellent nibs with feeds that always keep up.  One day, I'll find a nice #7, but I don't want to fall down that rabbit hole just yet!

Got my first Waterman today, a blue marble Phileas, for $10 even.  I spent about 25 minutes on the internet trying to figure out what model the pen was.

Have two Waterman 52 1/2 Vs.

 

I keep getting sniped on the regular 52s, 32s and the earlier eyedroppers :(
