Waterman 12 PSF – Medium Flex (On Ebay)

The 12 PSF was the  predecessor to Waterman 52. It is essentially a 52 but before Waterman standardized it’s numbering system, which would put it pre-1917. It’s is a nice looking pen with a couple of caveats. It does have some browning. The chasing is pretty worn. The imprints have some wear, but are easily readable. The “12 PSF” on the end still has some of the red. This model is a clip less one. There is some brassing on the lever. A little on the bands, but you have to look close to see it. The Waterman #2 is quite soft and springy and a nice writer. It has some flex that actually comes quite easy. However, line variation is not immense and not as responsive as I would like. Many would call this a “semi-flex.” Still a gorgeous, vintage pen.
