Waterma Hundred Year Pen – Medium Flex (On Ebay)

Perhaps the finest pen that Waterman ever made. The Hundred Year Deluxe is a nice, girthy pen that feels incredible in the hand. The pen really looks gorgeous, but it does have a few blemishes. It appears that someone at some time glued the clip onto the cap. It seems pretty sturdy, but there was some residue on the pen when I got it. The gold band is loose in that is spins freely on the cap, but it isn’t going anywhere. I don’t see any brassing on the trim. The body has some light scratching from wear, but I buffed out most of it. The biggest disappointment is that the nib didn’t have any iridium left.  Which is too bad because it is a big, beautiful “Hundred Year” nib that is soft with some flex. I ground the nib into a medium italic (0.8mm). It’s fairly crisp and smooth. Even with the blemishes, this is a beautiful pen.
