Servicing

The pen has been checked over and cleaned. The converters and cartridges for these pens are no longer available for sale, however we have supplied a second hand Waterman vintage converter which works beautifully. 

 

Imperfections

There are no major imperfections to note, no splits cracks or engravings. There are signs of the pens vintage, micro scratches throughout. But overall the pen is in very good condition.

 

Finishing Comments

It is rare to find a Waterman C/F with its section in such good condition (the gold plating usually discolours significantly), whereas here there are only the tiniest signs of ink wear around the base of the nib, otherwise the gold trim is superb. 

 

The tortoiseshell finish is equally rare and holds a subtle elegance.
