Waterma 52 1/2 V- Super Flex   (On Ebay)

This Waterman 52 1/2 has been stunningly preserved. This looks to have been someone’s fairly meticulous restoration project. It is a glossy jet black. Just the smallest bit of fading on the cap. The gold bands are in excellent condition with no brassing. Lever is also good. The chasing is good. The imprints are very crisp. There is a small crack at the bottom of the cap (See pics). Someone even went to the trouble of installing a thin gold ring on the cap (not original I believe) to keep the crack from spreading and to add some style. The nib writes a nice XF line and flexes very easily up to BB (1.4mm). The nib is quite responsive as well making smaller, more detailed flex work easier. This is a fine edition to any collection.
