ccvinylman posted a topic in WatermanJust today I spent $87.50 for a Waterman Gentleman (which includes free shipping) after comparing prices to the other ones being sold on eBay. The one I bought is burgundy lacquer with a medium "Ideal" nib. Interestingly, in my perusing of the 'Bay I came across a picture of a dozen Waterman Gentlemen(!) being sold en masse, in a Waterman box, no less. The pen which caught my eye immediately was the blue lacquer Gentleman with what I call "gold splotches." These splotches aren't specks or flecks but amoeba-size (enlarged a few hundred times) patches of gold. Whether they are comprised of real gold (as in gold leaf) or just a gold-colored metal of some sort, I do not know. What I do know is that I'd like to get a hold of one of those pens (not the box of 12, mind you, but a single blue-and-gold-splotched Gentleman)! Can anybody lead me in the right direction? Does the finish of the pen in question have a particular name? By the way, the box of pens which is still listed on the 'Bay for $2k and is numbered 3913 7994 9239. The blue and gold-splotched one is easy to spot; it's the seventh from the left. Thanks for whatever help you can render.
