Here is a little write up with my newly acquired Waterman 7, what is wrong with the pen?

Hmmm no pic of the clip? Could that be the problem?

Ok....I'll take a crack at it :D
The clip placement seems to be too high...and the breather hole isn't the 'keyhole' shape?:noidea:

Good try, but that aint it either.

Nice patterning on the barrel and cap, I like the concentric elipse effect.
The grip section with the nib looks redder than the main body.

Pity the breather hole isn't clover shaped to enhance the luck theme.

Nice pen! Lucky to get her with the box :) I don't know whats wrong, but a guess--the nib is not matched to the nib style band on the cap?

Nice review!

Thanks Will,

And you are the winner! Wrong nib, and a 52 barrel, which i think makes it a Waterman 5...
