WA588 Waterman Charleston. (Medium)

Date: c 2000s

Size: Capped - 5 5/16 inches; posted - 5 15/16 inches.

The Charleston is a classic Waterman design, the style of which harks back to the 1940s and 1950s.  This one is in a very nice glossy jet black colour with rhodium plated trim.  Though mainly a resin pen, it has a good weight to it, and is obvious quality at first glance.  This pen is in excellent and as far as I can tell, undamaged condition.  The cap has a hexagonal Waterman end "jewel" from which depends the pierced gold plated pocket clip. The cap unscrews from the barrel, which has a beautiful triple band mid-way down.  This consisted of a wide central band that bears the pen's imprint, flanked either side by a narrow band.  The traditional open nib is imprinted with the Waterman logo and "Paris" and is made from 18carat gold.  It is in a medium point.  The barrel unscrews to allow the pen to be filled.  You can use the fitted ink converter to fill from a bottle, or if you prefer you can use standard Waterman ink cartridges.  

I have fully serviced this pen.  It fills easily.  The nib writes with a very smooth action with a good consistent medium width line.
