George Rimakis and Daniel Kirchheimer did a bunch of painstaking research to dig up the true history of the Waterman Pen Company. Daniel Kirchheimer posted a thread on FPGeeks forum linking to their research. I decided to post a link to it here.
Mr. Kirchheimer’s initial post:
“George Rimakis and I have written a monograph that reveals some astonishing information about the formative days of the Waterman company. We invite readers here to have a look and to discuss the paper.
