No idea of what model exactly is this pen. Not only that, but I fail to understand the filling mechanism or way of filling with ink: there is no lever, button or any other visible such. However, the nib section does show remnants of a sac of some sort. How was this pen getting its ink? I do not understand, hence my asking of assistance. Thank you all!

A-ha...it does make sense. I just noticed that the body of the pen can be unscrewed in two halves, and that the bottom of the body's end has a small metallic resort inside.

 

It all makes sense. And this in turn means that the "remnants" of a sac, is actually the rubber seal which secures the glass vial inside the section, acting as a sealant of sorts.

 

Thank you very much. You wouldn't happen to know the name of this model, by any chance?

Waterman "Standard" (that's its name)

And it does take glass cartridges.

But the seal on your model will have to be changed if you want to use it.

I have the same pen. I thought it was called the JiF. Look up Richard binder's notes on how to create a seal between your feed and the glass cartridge. enjoy!

I have one that I restored, using Richard Binder's instructions.  It's a little tricky, but it's a fun pen.  The feed on mine is a little worn, and I didn't quite seat it completely, but it works and writes nicely.  They're fun pens.

Fountainpagan is a wonderful colleague: I was sent 2 Jif glass carties, absolutely and positively the items I needed for the Waterman Standard pen.

 

I cannot praise enough Fountainpagan's generosity and courtesy. I so highly recommend her as a valuable member of our community. Many thanks, FP!

You are too kind, PenThing, even if a little over the top. :lol: I thank you for your generosity.

 

It was a pleasure to be able to help you use this pen, after restoring. That is also what fora are for, community joint effort. :)

 

Enjoy your pen. It is a very nice model.
