Product Information

WATERMAN 515d Fountain Pen      BUTTON FILL

This is the rare button fill version of the Waterman 515 which is most commonly seen as a lever filler.

In DARK GREEN with black blind cap. Sorry if the pen looks black in the picture - definately dark green.

Gold plated trim - medium serrated cap band -  lovely sized pen, measures 135mm closed.

Dates to late 1940s.

Crisp barrel imprint just says 'Waterman's Made in England.'

Correct large 14ct Gold nib stamped 'Waterman's 14ct England 5.' Semi-flexible and very smooth MEDIUM. Lovely writer with an italic style.

Fully serviced - new sac - hand polished - write tested - perfect working order.

In Waterman single card box (repaired) with instructions. Instructructions refer to lever filler - not sure Waterman ever published instructions for button filler.

Pen is in excellent condition - light normal usage marks. Nice glossy finish.

This is one of my favourite pens which has been in my personal collection for some years now.  

The normal 515 lever fill is a lovely pen but the button filling 515D is quite rare, particularly in dark green. I haven't seen another one.
