WATERMAN 100-YEAR PEN, RIBBED, FULL SIZE, FLEX NIB, RESTORED
WatermanHundred Year Pen, early 1940s, in brown ribbed celluloid with gold filled trim and transparent ends.
This is the full size pen with the 17-size Waterman Hundred Year Nib, slightly thinner than the oversized version.
Very good condition with minor trim wear, nice shiny plastic. Minor nicks on the top rivet. The amber bottom end has been professionally replaced and looks like a perfect original end. The top clear end is original and shows minor internal crazing.
The nib is fine to medium with a fair amount of flex. It's about as flexible as a typical 'Red' Waterman color coded nib made for general writing in the 1920s. It's not overly soft, but is capable of considerable line variation -- you cando copperplate or spencerian writing, yet the nib is very suitable for every day.
Restored and working with a new sac installed. Length is about 5 3/16 inches.
An excellent example of this charming pen.
The writing samples are made using the pen itself, dipped inNoodler's BostonBrahmin Blackink.The paper is a Rhodia pad with 5mm squares.
