Waterman's 512V

Regular price £85.00

The Waterman's 512V was one of the first post war pens made by the company.  This is a fully restored and tested example in Gold Pearl with Gold filled trim.  The colour is a most attractive light and dark brown marble wirth a pearlised finish.

Waterman used letter 'V' was used to denote a shorter version of the pen, in this case a short 512.  The 'V' is a leftover from the American term 'vest' for a shorter pen.

The pen is in superb condition, the surface is excellent and carries a very crisp and clear imprint.  The gold filling on the clip, cap rings and box lever have held up very well.  The 'box' lever system was reserved for the higher end pens, it was an attractive improvement on the standard lever that prevented stress and 'bulging' around the lever slit in the barrel.

A new ink sac has been fitted and the filling system works well.  The 14 Ct. gold No. 2A nib writes with a smooth, fine line with a small but pleasing amount of flex.

The 512V is not a common pen, by any means, and one in this colour and such great condition is quite hard to find.
