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 almost 100 years ago 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 a unique modern design, hard to believe that is made 60 years ago, design that followed the space age and sleek car designs at the time. 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. This is a very rare version with light grey color, with a lacquer finish and gold filled cap and trimmings. The fountain pen features a stunning wing nib, solid 18K gold, EF extra fine size perfectly smooth and fine writing. This nib is constant and it has some flexibility, so it will write up to M medium. This is a perfect traveler pen, compact, easy to use, clean pen. The pens are ergonomically perfect, heavy with great grip, balance and feel in the hand. The pens are in mint condition, minimal to no signs of use, no dings, no scratches, no gold ware off, perfect cosmetic and functional condition. The pens are marked "Waterman's C/F" on the cap and "Made in France" and "G609018" serial number on the barrel. The set comes in its original box with silk lining and soft velvet like coating.
