Hi there,


A few weeks  ago I bought a set of Waterman Exception on eBay. According to the seller they were new and never been used. He is not a pen seller and does not know a lot about the pens. Now time to time I have the problem that the nib section comes loose when I try to remove the cap. When I slightly apply downwards or upwards pressure to the barrel and then pull the barrel to remove the cap, the it is OK, but if I pull the barrel directly, most of the time half of the nib section is staying in the cap. I have a photo of it. As you can see in the photo; the black part of the nib section is stucking inside the cap and the golden ring section is coming loose. I have to push it back and then apply downwards or upwards pressure to the barrel and applying pressure pull it back. Anyone any idea how to fix this problem?


kind regards,
