For your consideration, we are offering for sale this Modern Waterman Le Man 100 Opera Black Chased Fountain Pen in the original box with papers/documentation/receipt. This fountain pen has been gently used and has been cleaned and now is in ready-to-write condition.
The barrel and cap are gorgeous with beautiful with no wear, nicks, cracks, dings, dents, or scratching. The cap of this fountain pen displays the 23K gold-plated clip that is stamped on the cap banding with "WATERMAN MADE IN FRANCE" and Serial Number "23272". The cap and barrel are excellent with the cap always securing tightly via a friction fit. The section collar is the only area that shows some imperfections with some gold plate loss (see images). There are no monograms or personalizations to either the cap or barrel. This Waterman Opera was manufactured in Paris, France in the early to mid-1980s - the accompanying receipt shows that the fountain pen was purchased in 1989. This Waterman Opera measures 5 3/4" inches in length capped and 6 3/4" inches posted.
This Waterman Opera can use an Ink Converter or Cartridges - this Waterman Opera has one Waterman Ink-Converter for use in this pen. You would have to purchase the ink cartridges should you want to use those.
The NIB on this Waterman Opera is 18K/750 Solid Gold with a fine point. The tipping measures .53mm when measured using a digital caliper. I have only dip tested this Waterman Edson to perform a writing sample, which will write with a very smooth fine line of .45mm and flex to a 1.21mm broad/double broad line under firm pressure when measured with digital calipers. The nib is very smooth - a great fountain pen to write with.
The Waterman Opera comes with the original factory box, which is in excellent condition. Contains the original Waterman Edson booklet, documentation, Warranty Card, and original owner's receipt.
This Fabulous Waterman Opera Fountain Pen is an instant classic in the Black Chased Cap & Barrel. A very sophisticated pen that writes very well. It is ready to write with or add to your writing arsenal collection.
