Waterman Hundred Year Pen Set (1941) - Deluxe Oversize, Red Transparent, Flexible Fine (Superior in "Treasure Chest" Box, Restored)

Be the first to review this product

High end Waterman Hundred Year fountain pen set from the 1940s . The pen is 5-1/4" and rather stout so believe this is the De Luxe or oversized model. Massive fine flexible nib that is very smooth. Superior working condition.

Type  Vintage fountain pen in working condition, lever filler, hard to find. Matching pencil. In the multi-colored "Treasure Chest of Today" box.

Product Name  Waterman Hundred Year Pen (marked on the nib, and on the cap), De Luxe smooth version. (They also offered ribbed versions concurrently.)

Manufacturer and Year  Waterman, USA, circa 1941. This is the second year version, with four barrel bands and a military-compliant clip.  

Length  Full size 5-1/4". This is the De Luxe or oversized version.

Filling System  Lever filler. We've replaced the bladder with a sac in the pen and the filling system works well. The pencil takes 1.1mm leads.

Color  Red transparent smooth barrel and cap, made of Lucite. Gold plated trim.

Nib  Huge gold Waterman Hundred Year Pen nib. Fine with a good amount of flex, garden variety flexible, not full flex. See writing sample.

Condition  FOUNTAIN PEN: Superior working condition. Light handwear on the body and trim, with no brassing. Lucite can be prone to cracking, but luckily it doesn't crumble like the material used in the later Hundred Year pens. No cracks, chips, or personalization. The nib writes super smoothly and has good tipping material. The cap imprint is worn but readable. It is ready to write. 

PENCIL: Excellent + condition. Light handwear, but no cracks, chips, scratches, or personalization. No brassing or plating wear. It works well.

Payment Policy: Paying via Credit Card or PayPal are the only methods allowed for addresses outside the United States. Customers from the United States also have the option of sending a check, money order or cashier's check. Payment method is selected during checkout.

Domestic US Shipping Policy: For the most part, shipping to US addresses is free and is made via first class mail.

International Shipping PolicyInternational shipping is based on weight, and we give you a choice (depending on country) of first class, first class registered, priority mail or express delivery (only Express Mail provides true tracking). Internatonal shipments valued at over $40 come with free insurance, unless that service is not available for your specific country. Most of our customers opt for the very reasonably priced first class mail method, which can take anywhere from one to four weeks. We are happy to discuss alternatives to the options currently offered during the checkout process, so please contact us if you'd like a quote.

Most countries charge customs fees on shipments from the United States, but this is not something we can estimate and there is no way to pay these fees in advance. It is the responsibility of the customer to anticipate these costs and pay them when they are assessed by your country or postal system. We have heard that shipments valued at 50 EU or more get assessed fees in EU countries, for example.

UK customers please note: Packages valued at over $18 are subjected to both an administrative charge and a tax by UK customs and Royal Mail. Sorry, this is not something we can predict or pay in advance.
