Waterman #7 Pink Nib

Pen #20 is a 1921 Waterman in a beautiful Red Ripple. It’s a #7 lever-filler with a “Pink” color-coded nib and matching band at the top of the cap. Waterman produced 10 nib “colors” for the #7 pen: red, green, purple, pink, blue, yellow, brown, grey, black, and white (an example of the “white” has yet to be found). Each “color” corresponded to the style of the nib.  The “Pink” is usually “fine/triple-flexible” with the highest flexibility of all the nibs, and is very popular these days. Color coded nibs were used by Waterman in other pens such as the #5, Ink-Vue, #32, 92, 94, and others.  The #7 is the largest and combined with its flexibility is what makes this nib so desirable and coveted by collectors and users alike: a holy grail of pendom!

    Hi Gary,

    I’m hoping to locate a Watermans #7 Pink nib. Any chance you might have one available.

    Also, I keep missing out on the MB 320 Burgundy FP. Any remaining for sale ?

      Hi Robb, very sorry, no Waterman 7 “Pink” nib on-hand. Regarding missing the Montblanc 320 Burgundy pens, you might consider becoming a paid subscriber ($10 for four issues) to get to see new offerings a week earlier. Should we get another 320 Burgundy you would have a much better shot at it this way. https://gopens.com/subscribe-to-the-quarterly-vintage-pen-catalog/ Very best, Gary
