I am missing measures, but maybe someone could recognize the set and provide me some details if worth buying for 100$.

also for the "golden" one fountain, any clue?

thanks all

The non-gold set looks rather like a Thorobred (which is how Waterman spelled it; don't blame me).  That's a very clear window on the section, and the barrel seems un-ambered; if the sac is new and the pencil is working... $100 is probably a little on the steep side, still, but not absolutely unreasonable (on the grounds that you'd have trouble getting a modern pen with a 14K point for that price).

 

The gold one is a mystery to me.  Watermans in Italy frequently have overlays the rest of the world don't recognize; it doesn't make them wrong, they're just geographically specific ;)
