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.
What Waterman pens do you own?

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.
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.
