    Waterman 52 advice please

    Hello fellow FPNers, I am considering buying a pen which the seller has described as a "Waterman 52", but I noticed that the clip is attached near the top of the cap (please refer to the attached images). I know the Waterman 52v has a higher-mounted clip like the pen on sale, but all of the other Waterman 52's I have seen so far show the clip attached lower down on the cap. Could someone please tell me if the Waterman 52 ever came with a higher-mounted clip? Is the pen for sale actually a Waterman 52? Or is it some sort of Waterman frankenpen? Your advice would be much appreciated! Best, John

    ID Waterman Expert pen model???

    Hi All. Hoping someone can advise. My wife stumbled on a Waterman Expert for a whopping £1. After a good clean out it is actually in a pretty good condition. I'm confused by what model it is though. It has all the features of a Mk1, seems to have a plastic body and definitely a plastic cap, markings correspond most with a mk1 as well, however, it has a mk2 nib. It also came in a box that I believe was actually for a Le Man 100 as it has the word "ideal" in it with a picture of a globe. I suspect this might have been a very early mk2, that was essentially just a swap of nib from the mk1. Or someone replaced the mk1 Nib with a new one. Hoping someone has some insight. Adding some pics...

    What Waterman pen is this?

    I recently inherited a gold-filled Waterman pen from my grandfather's collection, but I'm struggling really hard to ID it. I initially thought the pen was a C/F, but it doesn't have the classic clip design that is typical of a C/F, and I'm at a loss for what else it could be. The pen has an inlaid 18k gold nib with minimal markings, just a Waterman W, 18k, and 750. It was manufactured in France and has "plaque or g" written on the cap. Anyone have any ideas?
  5. Does anyone have any insight as a person or company that can provide a real world valuation of a Waterman Edson Boucheron specimen with production error. This pen has been sitting in my collection for years and the other day I was looking at it and realized that the pen was made with a error in it. The gold webbing that covers the body of the pen was placed in the wrong position one portion dips down to line up with the nib. Instead of lining up with the nib it is 45 degrees off and lining up with your thumb(if your right handed.see photos) From what I understand there were 10 specimen models made and they were suppose to be destroyed. I know of one other specimen that came to market years ago and was listed on ebay for what I thought was a astronomical price pf $50,000. Yes I have taken the pen apart to see if the webbing simply shifted but it has not it was simply made wrong.
  6. Hi everyone. I love my Waterman Expert in every way...except..the plastic section has two prominent (to my touch) raised seams set 180o from each other running the length of the piece (mold seams). These are beginning to bug me, and I am wondering if there is a way to remove them (make it so I don't feel them) without having to sand down the entire section and repolish it (I have never done that kind of thing). Any suggestions?

    Waterman 75 Nibs - WTH?

    I'm looking around for a broad nib for a Waterman 52 1/2 v (the little ringtop). vintagenibs.com had a couple of nibs labeled "Waterman 75 Made In USA" stamped lengthwise down the nib. It's gold and has a round breather hole and the usual info sources don't seem to mention this model, which is priced like an average vintage nib. Anybody know anything about them? Are they real?

    Waterman Embleme

    Waterman is launching soon a new collection "Embleme", not to similar to the old Emblem!
  9. Adding a mate to my Carene Marine Amber, today I received the Carene L’Essence de Bleu. It has a lovely dark blue lacquer barrel with palladium plated cap with wave pattern, palladium trim, and Rhodium plated 18k gold nib. Out of the box, the fine nib wrote perfectly. I find it a sleek and elegant pen comfortable to hold and write with. I’m altogether pleased with it, as I have been with the Amber version. From Waterman’s website: https://www.waterman.com/pens/l’essence-du-bleu/carène-fountain-pen-lessence-du-bleu-gift-box/SP_2170968.html

  11. I have a waterman carene rollerball pen. I wonder if I can convert the Rollerball pen into a fountain pen. Think about how I was the messages before the search and modification. Are you sure that the Carene fountain pen cap fits the Carene roller ballpen cap? Wouldn't it be compatible if I put the carne fountain pen cap in the rollerball pen barrel and put a very small cartridge about 3.7cm sold by Waterman into the rollerball barrel?

  19. Hello friends! 👋 So very recently I picked up a Waterman Carene medium nib, which is a gorgeous pen and for the most part I am pretty happy with it! However I have observed some strange behaviour from it when using on different paper types. From what I have seen, the Carene seems to have various reports / reviews of skipping or hard starting being an issue. I observed this when writing on some Clairfontaine paper in a notebook, the page started looking quite messy with missing parts of letters or me having to write over existing letters to fill them in. I then tried the exact same pen with the same ink(Edelstein Aventurine) not 5 minutes later on some Tomoe River paper in another notebook and I experienced not a single skip nor any hard start when writing for roughly the same amount of time. Is this something others have experienced and is it an actual problem with the pen or with the paper? Tomoe River and Clairfontaine is pretty good quality paper I am to understand, so I am curioius as to what others think. Does this pen need the touch of a nibmeister and if so, who could people recommend for such a service?
