FS: MIB Waterman's WAT


Andy

Recommended Posts

I can hear your thoughts- "What's a WAT?"

 

I'll tell you.

 

But first, the Fine Print:

 

(First "I want" e-mail takes the item. Domestic money orders, Paypal (either flavor) happily spent; no checks unless we've danced before, please. Domestic Priority Mail shipping included in price; happy to ship internationally, but the price will be higher- please ask.)

 

"Wat" have we got here? (sorry, couldn't help it)

 

MIB Waterman's WAT, Fine Nib, Uninked & with Chalk-marks!

The Wat, along with its brother the "X-Pen" were Waterman's answer the Parker 61 (the 61 came on the scene in 1956, the X-Pen and Wat followed in 1957) For almost all you'll ever need to know about the Wat and X-pen, please refer to this link to Richard's reference page.

 

I believe these had a fairly short production run and aren't super common- I've not seen any for sale in several years (IIRC) here or on FPN.

 

The pen is in Mint condition- no flaws to report. The pen has not been filled (dig how clean the the capillary material is), but has been dipped. The bright line on the hood is not a lighting effect- that is a line of silver pigment inset into the plastic. Chalk-marks are fully legible as are all imprints and the little disc on the top of the cap that says "WAT" (just noticed that- pretty cool).

 

Pen comes with a period-correct box (box top not in the greatest shape). I can't say for sure that it's the original box, but I have no evidence to the contrary either.

 

Nib is, as noted on the barrel, a Fine.

 

NOTE: This pen is on consignment and is being sold as "uninked" and, as such, I cannot issue a refund for the pen if it is not returned in its uninked state. Fillers-Keepers.

 

This is an interesting piece of Waterman's history in Mint condition- and it can be yours for $80, shipped.

 

Gimme a holler!

      I have the Sailor Naginata and some fancy blade nibs coming after 2022 by a number of new workshop from China.  With all my respect, IMHO, they are all (bleep) in doing chinese characters.  Go use a bush, or at least a bush pen.

      It is the reason why I'm so keen on the idea of a personal library — of pens, nibs, inks, paper products, etc. — and spent so much money, as well as time and effort, to “build” it for myself (because I can't simply remember everything, especially as I'm getting older fast) and my wife, so that we can “know”; and, instead of just disposing of what displeased us, or even just not good enough to be “given the time of day” against competition from >500 other pens and >500 other inks for our at

      Agreed.  And I think it’s good to be aware of this early on and think about at the point of buying rather than rationalizing a purchase..

      Alas, one cannot know “good” without some idea of “bad” against which to contrast; and, as one of my former bosses (back when I was in my twenties) used to say, “on the scale of good to bad…”, it's a spectrum, not a dichotomy. Whereas subjectively acceptable (or tolerable) and unacceptable may well be a dichotomy to someone, and finding whether the threshold or cusp between them lies takes experiencing many degrees of less-than-ideal, especially if the decision is somehow influenced by factors o

      I got my first real fountain pen on my 60th birthday and many hundreds of pens later I’ve often thought of what I should’ve known in the beginning. I have many pens, the majority of which have some objectionable feature. If they are too delicate, or can’t be posted, or they are too precious to face losing , still they are users, but only in very limited environments..  I have a big disliking for pens that have the cap jump into the air and fly off. I object to Pens that dry out, or leave blobs o
