That ripple is from djstrong, right, judging by that writing? Gorgeous. He sells some lovely stuff.

 

Yes, and I liked it so much that I bought another one.

This is a red ripple 52 (Canadian)

He has another red ripple for sale now and his website is here.

I have 14 Watermans, such as the Thoroughbred (4),some  Carenes (2) and some unidentified vintage pens, plus a 52.  My first wife gave me a Hemisphere as a gift.  But since then I have not really been into Waterman.  I do like the C/Fs - I have two of them - but I wish they made cartridges for them or designed a converter.

The CF pens are fantastic and converters that fit the CF are still available from Waterman on Amazon

I own the Perspective and Expert. The Perspective is my workhorse. I've been using it every day for around 4 years now and I love the way it writes. It's definitely a heavy and scratchy pen, but I find that this adds to the enjoyment of writing with it. You get an amazing feedback that keeps the hand from getting sloppy.

So in May I had two: now I have six. I think I've stopped buying Waterman's, and as I've mentioned elsewhere on these venerable boards, I may have stopped buying pens... But then I thought that about four pens ago!

 

Anyway, this is what I have (pics later, but I'm waiting for two them to be sent from Blighty):

 

1. 3J ('Jet' - unmarked - IDed on here from a 1936 catalogue page): English, super flex broad stub; bought dirt cheap on eBay

 

2. 12 eyedropper: NY, flexible fine needs fixing, prob pre-teens, came from my Great Grandpa via my grandmother

 

3. 351 (Maybe Stalwart - certainly the red streaked gold and brown marble): 1947? Canadian extra fine flex; most expensive pen I've bought on eBay (still not really expensive judging by what other people pay!!)

 

4. Hybrid - maybe 352 body (unmarked - looks like 352 Dauntless - cost pennies on eBay with no nib or pressure bar), with Great Grandpa's FDW marked extra fine flex nib in

 

5. 12 PSF two gold bands (1917): English, flexible fine nib (not here yet)

 

6. 502 (Champion?): English late 40s-early 50s, nib as yet unknown!!

I have one black Laureat that has never written smoothly :bawl: & I just got a lovely red (with green stripes) 92A-V at the Commonwealth Pen Show.

 

I had another years ago that I've asked about in another thread.

My name is Laureat75, and I am a Watermaniac.

Modern:

 

4 Laureats - red green, blue and grey (plus two BPs)

4 Gentlemen (one in the post)

1 totally OTT gold-plated L'Etalon

1 Maestro (plus BP)

I  Apostrophe

1 Forum

1 Reflex

1 Lady Charlotte

2 C/Fs

 

Ancient:

 

1 L3

1 W2

1 32

 

I love 'em.  They all write beautifully.

Update for you OCDers out there!

The 12 PSF turned out to be a F/EF-BBB(B?) wet noodle, and US made, not English. It's a marvel. I've used it every day since I got it, even if just to write one line, and think about it all the time!  :yikes:  And I worked out it wouldn't have been 1917, as that was the year the 12 PSFs were renamed 52s, and since the Watermans levers only came out in '15 it must be from '15 or '16... is that right, anyone?

 

The 502 is a beautiful colour (hunting green?) with a F-B semi-flex, unfortunately somewhat scratchy... The tines seem aligned, so I might give it a wee smoothing while I decide whether to sell it. I don't really need a pen that behaves like that, but it is nice, so if I can get it writing nicely, maybe.

I have:
 
1 Carene Marine Amber (f)
1 Kultur in blue
1 Kultur in Harley Davidson Colors
1 Graduate with a failing cartridge nipple
the wreckage of a #12 PSF (I Love the decorated gold bands)
I have a very plain safety pen with a Waterman nib (18k "France") and no other imprint or identification. I have only a guess as to how old it is.
