Answering to a collector question, I'm thinking it will be good to let you know this Waterman pen
I'm a Waterman lover and collecting all Waterman I can find at good price and that I love !
I find this following pens on the Net and be curious about it
André Mora was explaining me for some of it:

All this pen are family of MAn 100 that will all known now, but expept the first on left, they all have square clip.

We can say that this is Man evolution that we have under eyes now:

From left to right

- The Waterman Strong appears like a Man previious version, black resin/plastic, gold trim, very nice n°6 nib two tone, from 1970's (I've take the text of last sale iin France on this pen from, A Mora)

Following, old Gentleman (1 gold plated brush, 1 steel brush and 1 black resin brush) and a Man 21 (the one with like Concorde nib)

A Mora told me that this "old" Gentleman model was product just some year (limited edition) just after the Man, then at beginning at 1980's :
- old Gentleman gold plated brush, Gold trim, with so nice and easily n°6 nib, Broad nib, with ring of the section nib gold plated
- old Gentleman steel brush, silver trim, with Fine n°6 nib, ring section nib silver/steel
- old Gentleman resin black brush with M n°6 nib, ring section nib gold plated
- Man 21 plastic/resin black brush with this beautifull M nib like Concorde nib, but larger than original Concorde nib
Last pen for comparing, is the actually Man 100 : size are the same

The NIB

Very intersting : you can change n°6 section nib and Like Concorde section nib on each of Gentleman old style or Man 21 !!

Very intersting pen, with same writing sensation than on this fabulous Man 100 !!

All this 4 pen have a squarred clip, articuled, around the cap.

This n°6 nib is the previous version of the Man 100 nib, because you can change it with the Man 100 Globed nib : my Man 100 Arlequin do have a n°6 nib on the section nib, and it wrote like butter, like other Man 100 nib
