    Default FS Waterman Blue Laureat Fountain Pen & Rollerball Set

    ON HOLD


    I really have to stop looking at every garage sale and antique store I see. Another rescue. Waterman Blue Marble Laureat with medium nib. It has the original cardboard box (has a tear), the original books and instructions etc, a spare parker washable blue cartridge and a spare fine nib! The rollerball has long since dried up, however, I am headed out to a few stationary stores this afternoon and will have a replacement blue refill installed for you. A very small amount of ink came out of the medium nib, and QUITE A LOT of ink came out of the fine. It looks like the original owner prefered fines however, judging from the condition of the pen I don't think this saw much use. The factory sticker on this box says $110

    The nibs are gold in color, however looking at the construction of the nib and slit I am pretty sure this is just a plated steel nib.

    $60 shipped.

    Photos!

    I've installed the new refill in the rollerball. This set is now ready to write!

    This set is still for sale. The previous buyer flaked out and then it got packed away for our move. It's unpacked and ready to ship again.

    $50 shipped? I just saw a set go for $200 on ebay which is ridiculous as they were only $110 new.......

    I had someone ask me how the pen wrote:

    I stole the converter out of my Waterman Perspective and inked it up with Diamine Florida Blue. It writes on the dry side to me. I would say a 4/10 on the wetness scale. It will keep up with writing but has the occasional dry start and it will not keep up with my flourishes which I make at roughly 100mph LOL. I usually like my nibs at 8/10 - 9/10 wetness to keep up with my flourishes. The pen is usable but geared more towards quick drying notes for a notebook that gets closed quickly instead of lusciously wet and sloppy correspondence.

    Thanks for replying.

    I have a Waterman Loreat pen with a damaged nib. Perhaps you have ideas of how I can find a replacement or if there is a brand that is compatible? I have had no luck with a Google search.

    Thanks,
    Gran
