This late 1940s English Waterman is made from a very attractive grey coloured celluloid and has all gold filled trim. There are no cracks, splits or chips to either cap or barrel and no noticeable surface scratches either. In fact, this pen is in remarkably good condition with no damage noted at all. The pen has a good glossy sheen. All the trim is in excellent and undamaged condition. The cap has a gold filled top button holding on the Waterman's pocket clip. There is also a single narrow cap band. The barrel imprint is still beautifully crisp and deep. The filling lever has a large spade-shaped end tab. The section is black and shiny. The Waterman's No. W-2A English 14 carat gold nib is in a medium point.
I have fully serviced this pen. It fills well and writes effortlessly with a very smooth, medium width wet line. The mid is cut quite square at the end and is stubby. as you can see from the writing sample below, it will produce some very attractive line width variation with hardly any effort at all.
