200 GBP??? I can get a new Cross Century 18kt gold filled for 150 EUR..... And this thing awfully looks like a Cross Century, only with a Waterman text on the clip.

 

Did Waterman make Centuries for Cross? Or vice versa??

Yes, I think there was some colaboration or they just made a similar model, here is another in chrome.

Priced and described to deceive...

 

when informed it was plated the seller said it's up to the viewer to decide if it's solid gold or plated hhhuuuuuuuuuuuuu.

Possibly as a writer it is in good condition. But you could say this pen has seen some use.....

 

Sofar for the price you can't say anything against it.

 

Someone could get a nice 18k replacement nib out of it.

There are those that give a full description sometimes going over the top to sell there pens and then we have the others.

Pens are like watches , once you start a collection, you can hardly go back. And pens like all fine luxury items do improve with time

Thank you.  We all need a little levity now and then.

It never ceases to amaze me that there are those who would consider that pen to be in "good" condition rather than in "used and abused" condition.

Some of the postage charges seem to be almost as amusing as the pens, descriptions and prices.

Nice...but too expensive and what would I do with the Diabetic Test Strips.

 

and

 

A lovely item, not to be missed !

 

There seems to be a contradiction in terms in the description.

 

One line it's bad the next it's good. Even the box looks good but it is described as if it were falling apart.

A good imagination is required here...I did ask for pictures 2 days ago but nothing yet.

 

The seller now says cannot upload pictures and in their words, 'Noone is obliged to bid unless they wish to'....yes right.

Glenn.

They have the option to not show questions.

 

The listing started as a £15 BIN...I have also suggested that the seller point viewers to a retailers site selling the same model...but nowt. Very strange indeed. Are they hidding something.

 

Also noting the current bidders have plenty of ebay experience.

 

Intrigue got the better of me. It was bought 7 years ago for £90 so it must be a higher grade model whatever it is.

 

Now before the auction end I received answers fairly quickly from the seller so I decided to ask for a photo good or bad of 'what we are about to receive'....nothing has appeared.
