FS: MIB Waterman's WAT



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!
