Beautiful pens! So is there actually a diaphragm in those pens like the old Parkers? I can't see anything in the ink chamber.

Only Transparent and Light Blue transparent

 

Now that is smart!

I am searching for days for the fully transparent one, but this one without the diaphragm really looks great!

 

Let's wait for an eBay seller with this version though ...

Considering that the new WS 601 colors showed up after a couple of days (on the third?), let's give it another day or two before they show up on ebay.

Wait only 200? Welp, since it's a test batch and 60 seem to be already gone, I'm not even sure we'll be able to see them on ebay this time around.   :o

 

Fine and medium nib though, nice.

I'm really hoping I can find a nice soft vintage gold nib to put in the 626.

Oh...Just like WS 601, the first batch of WS 626 have some problem...

The Clip are easy to be separated and the OEM factory did not deal with the thread well. And the plating layer...

626 now I do not think they are final product...

It seems that victo is not good at test.

The first batch ... Phase IV Clinic Experiment?...

Yikes, maybe I'll buy one next year after the kinks are worked out. They do look beautiful though!

retail customers are increasingly treated as Bata Tester which company do not even need to pay to get them to work  and in fact making money off them ; this is bad business practice at play ; I am pretty disappointed in Victo bringing such shame to a great name. In any case I think straight off copying each and every styling cue of the Sheaffer Balance today is to me no longer being possible to be considered as a homage. There really is no need to fashion the white dot, nor to have the clip exactly the same shaped. The Balance of course had been copied over and over again , even by Sheaffer themselves ( and those 90s copy are not really tat good either ); Ranga, Edison, and plenty others too, there is noting wrong about that when the original one had long gone but not to the point how the 626 being fashioned.

 

Instead I think Victo would be best to rekindle customers in better product and more sensible styling and decent workmanship. Needless to say such consistent bad performances simply are not encouraging at all
