Hello all, I am new to this forum.

I would like to know the model of this Waterman fountain pen.

All I know is that it is from 1970s.

Also, this pen is missing its converter.

It will be great to know which converter can be used with this pen.

Thank you.

That looks like a waterman c/f and was introduced in the 50's. It wasn't the first cartridge pen but it was one of the more successful early cartridge pens. Unfortunately waterman doesn't make the cartridges anymore so you can either buy an old squeeze converter (pricy) or try and hunt down a dry cartridge and refill it with a needle syringe.

Cartridges may still be available. A local pen store was able to order some from Waterman last year. I got one; it was pretty pricy, though, in the $20 range. Still and all, I felt it was worth it.

You can try to buy a used waterman c/f on ebay that is pictured with its dry cartridge, that would be around $20-$30. I got my waterman c/f with cartridge for $10 so it's not impossible

What a gorgeous pen!  Sounds like it will be a bit fussy, getting it into use, but definitely worth it for something a handsome as that.

I have a few of these C/Fs and I really enjoy them.  I rec'd a box of cartridges with one and I've been refilling them as I go along.  No problems.  The pens are generally very lovely and I've never had a hard starter -- even after leaving them alone for a few days.
