[SOLD]Waterman Piston Filler! $175

[SOLD]Waterman Piston Filler!

That's right! A very rare piston filler made by Waterman! Many people don't even know they exist. These were made for the Swiss market for a few years during the 1950's, and then never seen again. The piston filler designed by Waterman is very good, and I illustrate this in the repair/maintenance tutorial here made for the future owner. I didn't change the seal on this pen because it has a good seal. There is one hairline crack on the cap lip(check pics), but does not affect capping. I would be cautious and not post it hard if you post your pens when writing. Threads are excellent. Clip has good tension. Chrome trim is near perfect. I didn't polish this pen since it looked barely used when I got it. I try not to polish pens if they don't need it. The trim would've looked a bit shinier if I did polish, but I would rather preserve the pen as much as possible. The Waterman's 14k Ideal nib has very nice flex to it. Writes from a XF/F to BBB, and is a full flex rated nib with superb shading and responsiveness. Pen has two circle port view windows to check ink level. A simple design that is great for maintenance. Superb ink capacity over Waterman's traditional lever fillers. A very rare and sought after pen. Please check pics for a better description. Writing sample is done on .5cm grid 90 gsm Clairefontaine paper. Measurements: 12.5cm capped, 14.5cm posted, and 11.5cm unposted.

Asking price is $175 shipped within CONUS via Priority with tracking/insurance. USA buyers preferred. International buyers please PM or Email for shipping rates. I am not responsible for any duty fees incurred since I have no control over customs.
