Condition and information:
The Waterman C/F pen, standing for "Cartridge Filler", was the first global fountain pen with the "new" revolutionary disposable cartridge filling system. Even though cartridges existed many years before this pen, it was Waterman's who first made the truly global cartridge fountain pen that worked. There was another company Atomica from Italy who made a cartridge pen the year before, but their market was marginal compared to this pen. The pen is unique, sleek modern design, hard to believe that is was made 60 years ago. The original C/F was launched in USA in 1953, this model is same, but was produced in France after 1957 as the US model was discontinued. There are many variants of the CF pen, this one is a black resin and gold filled cap. The fountain pen features a stunning wing nib, solid 18K gold, F fine size perfectly smooth. The section features two gold plated metal plates that meet towards the nib. This nib is semi flexible, with a gentle push it will write medium and even broad. This is a perfect traveler pen, compact, easy to use and clean, doesn't create a mess. The pen is ergonomically perfect, fair weight with great grip, balance and feel in the hand. The pen is in mint condition with minimal signs of use, no dings, no scratches, no gold wear off, perfect cosmetic and functional condition. The pen is marked "Waterman's C/F" on the cap and "G05" on the section.
