    It's a very long shot. If I wanted one I would trawl ebay regularly and maybe look for a beat up Waterman Man 100. The other possibility may be to contact Waterman and see if they can sell you one. They might need the pen in order to replace it but that might be the only way to get a new nib in there. Oh and I think you might find that Waterman call it size L

    Thanks for your answer, I'm already looking on the classifieds sites to find a Man 100 1883-1983 in bad condition in order to get its feather. And the Waterman service department does not have this type of nib anymore. The worst is that it's because of them that I don't have a 1883-1983 broad nib anymore, I had sent them my pen to change the section ring, and when they sent it back to me, they had put an M IDEAL nib in its place... Since then, I can't get it back...

    I also can exchange a 1883-1983 left oblique nib against the 1883-1983 large.

    That is unacceptable from Waterman. They cannot remove your nib and replace it with something else that is different. An Ideal nib would be seen as acceptable as it's the same type of nib as is normally seen in the Waterman Man 100, but you are certainly entitled to have a broad nib not a medium nib since that's what you sent them. If I was you I would write to the CEO and make an official complaint. The Ideal nib is the latest model and there is no reason they shouldn't have a broad one for you.
