Waterman 18k Black Gold

Waterman Cartridge Fountain Pen


The notion of a cartridge pen is nothing brand-new (Eagle ended up being making cup cartridge pens since 1890). Nonetheless, the history of contemporary cartridge fountain pen actually begins in 1936, whenever JiF Waterman – Waterman's mostly autonomous French agency – introduced a line of American-made pens altered to simply take glass cartridges. The "produced in United States Of America" imprints suggest that these altered pencils were, at the very least at first, especially made in the US for European market.

These US-marked pens had been based on the 92/32 and 3V series. Before long, however, more distinctively French designs were introduced, including some fully covered in silver or gold. underneath pen into the image above cannot even bear the Waterman name, but only that of JiF, combined with imprint, "Fabrication Française" – the 18K nib is still US-made.

Creation of these pens has been interrupted by the Second World War. The "Standard" (middle, above) is a postwar instance, but by 1953 Waterman had introduced the C/F, the water feature pen that inaugurated the era of synthetic ink cartridges and relegated the glass cartridge to obsolescence.
