I think if I can find a gunmetal with a B nib for that price, it'll decline into my pocket. :hmm1:


Who could not love that nib...

That nib is gorgeous! I have an M nib. Is it possible to have it modified?

:hmm1: IMHO maybe not. Even buying a new,factory, Broad section may not get you this size. I have 2 or 3 and all are slightly different. The one pictured having the largest tip.

I particularly wanted the coral orange Carene (love that look) which is no longer available new. I saw some eBay auctions asking $599 which I thought was crazy. I was able to snag it new in box, never inked for $167 which I felt was somewhat of a fair price if not a deal.

Yes, a very nice pen. The colour is Coral Reef. That would be NY Monty with the sky high price.

It can still be purchased as NOS, mint S/H or used on the great auction site where they appear fairly frequently. I have just carried out a search and found a number of such pens.

I was able to snatch a NOS rose gold Meridians with a medium-nib for EUR130 just before Christmas. I had the nib exchanged for a stub that actually turned out to be a medium stub. The shop was making place for newer pens... me not complaining.

So that was a good ending to an otherwise fairly bad (personally) year.

Glad to hear you had a good ending to the year and I wish you a better year this year!

Are stub nibs sold separately? And would they be available in the US?

Yes, well certainly here in the UK. You should contact a local Waterman dealer. If you buy a new pen with any other nib the dealer can return it to NRW for an exchange FOC. You just have to wait a while. There's a UK ebay seller currently offering stubs for £45 + delivery. They are £65 + delivery most other places if not more.

The free exchange takes about a week or less here in the Netherlands. Bought it on Wednesday befor Christmas, got a phone call that it had arrived on the Thursday after Christmas.


For older pens your shop could order a new section-with-nib.

Or have a look on Amazon, Our FPN-member Lewertowski has an Amazon-shop (penseller from France) where he offers the whole Parker and Waterman range including new sections. I have not compared lately, but his prices used to be very good.
