Hi Waterman experts and aficionados!
Can you please advise on really good and reputable Waterman's pen(s) restoration/repair person?
I presume it would be equally appropriate to ask/post this question in Repair and... etc - group on this forum, but this is Waterman specific question - thus I feel more comfortable asking here first.
I have recently bought one Waterman 58 - and to date, this is my ... rarest, biggest, most precious Waterman pen. I'm still waiting for the package, it should be in my hands in a few days.
From what I was told by a seller, it belonged to her grandfather who was a book-keeper and the pen was, understandably, his prized possession. He rarely used it, but given that he got the pen after high school, after several (six or seven) decades - it can be considered well used. The seller is not a pen person, thus - no information on general condition. Through photos I have deduced few things.
I anticipate some work would be necessary, changing the sac and cleaning of the pen and the nib - the least of it. In any other case - I would do this myself.
However - it is Waterman 58. The nib may need some attention, some polishing and... well, this pen deserves a proper work by someone who has experience.
So, please suggest whom should I get in touch with?
There are several names being mentioned in several posts on this forum, but no feedback to who is the right person to take care of Waterman 58 for an example.
P.S. as soon as I receive the pen, I'll post few photos ... for "before"
