Listed here is a vintage Waterman No. 7 Ripple with a YELLOW Keyhole nib. This Waterman No. 7 Ripple is the third generation of this model and is made from celluloid. The first and second generation No. 7 pens were made from red hard rubber (ebonite) in the Red Ripple design.

CAP & BARREL

The cap and barrel are in excellent condition. All of Waterman's maker's imprints are present. There are no scratches, dings, and/or cracks on the pen. The cap's trim is quite clean. There is slight brassing to the periphery of the lever. All of these can be seen from the pictures.

YELLOW KEYHOLE NIB

The nib on this pen is one of the color coded keyhole nibs that Waterman made to distinguish different types points (i.e. stub, manifold). The 'YELLOW' indicates that the point is ROUNDED. The points of these Yellow nibs are round and are incredibly smooth. Yellow nibs were intended for left-handed writers because the the point would provide smooth writing regardless of the nib's angle. These nibs are designed with elegant keyhole shaped breather holes that are far scarcer than other common contemporary designs such as the heart-shaped breather hole and the standard circular breather hole. The nib on this pen has quite a bit of tipping material (please see pictures). It writes with a nice medium line that offers medium full flex. This particular Yellow nib is one of the smoothest vintage nibs I have ever used.

This Waterman No. 7 will make for a real treat!


RESTORATION SERVICES


This pen has been cleaned and tested for function (filling and writing). It is READY TO WRITE upon filling with standard fountain pen ink.

  • A new correctly sized 100% silicone ink sac has been correctly installed with the addition of 100% pharmaceutical grade talcum powder (an excellent dry lubricant for the ink sac). This ink sac will prevent discoloration to the celluloid and will last much longer than their cheaper latex counterparts which are used on most pens.
  • Renaissance Wax (yes, only the best) has been sparingly applied to the surface to protect and preserve the celluloid surfaces and gold filled trim. Renaissance Wax is used by professional vintage pen restorers and other esteemed institutions such as the British Museum. It is great for protecting metal from oxidation and for protecting surfaces that often come into contact with hands. This wax will not stain or discolor with aging. It is 1. acid neutral; 2. water resistant; and 3. alcohol resistant. The Renaissance Wax will preserve the color of the celluloid and protect from color loss.
  • The nib has been adjusted for smoothness and flow.
  • The pen has been fully disassembled, cleaned, and has been conservatively polished.
