Production of Waterman Pens in the UK began just after the War in 1946. The modles were the same as the pre-war American range. The W5 was the flagship model at the time and remains a popular and desirable fountain pen. It is finished in the lovely Grey and Green striated marble with gold filled trim.
The pen is in very good condition with only minor marks and scratches to the cap and barrel commensurate with use. There is a little wear to the plating on the clip and lever box.
The large 14ct gold nib is a Fine side of Medium and it writes beautifully with a light flex to it.
The pen has been fully restored and now works perfectly.
We are very lucky here at Vintage Fountain Pens Ltd as we are able to continue to run the business from home. However we are taking every precaution to ensure that we all remain safe, all envelopes are new and come from sealed packaging, all pens and accessories are kept in sealed cupboards until required and all work areas are disinfected on a daily basis. We are still taking in repairs and, as long as the Post Office is open, we are able to turn them round very quickly. Let us hope that we get on top of this virus very quickly and we can all get back to normal. Thank you for your continued support.
