Picked up a 1939 Waterman "Hundred Year" fountain pen today. This is the good side, there's damage on the other side of the cap that's beyond my skills to repair, so I need to send it to a professional for restoration.
I think I have one of those somewhere. I had no idea it was that old however.
They only made this particular style of the Hundred Year, for a year. The design gradually evolved to be more normal looking. They are quite collectable, problem is finding them in good condition. Both Bexley and Waterman have put out pens in the last few years inspired by the original, but they are quite different so there is no confusing them for the original.
