Ultrasonically cleaned the NIB, feed, and section. Hand cleaned the inside of the barrel and cap. Cleaned and polished the outside of the cap and barrel. Replaced the old rubber sac with a new, properly sized, rubber sac. Hand polished the 18K Gold Filled Cap Banding, Gold Filled Waterman Clip, Gold Filled Lever Box Assembly along with the Waterman 14K RED Keyhole NIB. The trim on this #7 has the high-end Deluxe Trim with the Knurled Edging and has been polished brightly to shine again.
This fountain pen is made from celluloid in Jet Black color. The black coloring is a deep black and has been polished to a fabulous shine - it is in incredible condition! The barrel has the imprint at the center of the barrel that reads, "WATERMAN'S MADE IN CANADA WATERMAN LOGO FOUNTAIN PEN". The butt end of the fountain pen has the "RED" disc with "7" imprint. The threads on the cap and barrel are excellent with the cap always securing tightly to the barrel. There are no monograms on the cap or barrel. There are no repairs, scratching, teeth marks, or damage to the celluloid. This Waterman #7 measures 5 1/2" in length capped and 7" posted. The lever is crisp and clean. The clip and cap banding have been polished to shine brightly and display no wear.
The lever and box assembly has been cleaned and oiled. I have tested the lever filling systems with water and works flawlessly and as it originally intended to.
Here is the "fun" part of this fountain pen. The NIB is the Waterman #7 RED Keyhole Nib. The NIB is in wonderful condition that writes so smoothly. When measuring the actual tip of the 14K Red NIB, it measures at .79mm with digital calipers. When writing the sample in the listing images, the NIB writes with a fine line measuring roughly .52mm with very light pressure and flexes up to 1.85mm with normal to medium pressure; I didn't want to overextend the NIB's capabilities. The writing sample provided was done with the actual pen in the images that are listed for sale. The writing sample was used by dipping the NIB in Parker Quink Black Ink.
This is vintage Waterman #7 Fountain Pen is in ready-to-write condition. I would consider the condition of this Waterman #7 Red Disc/Keyhole Nib Fountain Pen to grade in Excellent+ to Near Mint. These later Waterman numbered models are increasingly difficult to acquire, especially in this condition. This #7 Red Keyhole Nib and Fountain Pen is one of the best writing pens that collectors desire in this series. A collector-grade writing instrument to add to your writing arsenal collection!
