Waterma 12 1/2 POC – Super Flex (On Ebay)

Here is a little piece of Waterman’s history. The 1/2 in 12 1/2 means slimmer profile than a 12. The POC stands for “Pocket,” which means it has a screw cap instead of a slip cap. Thus, you can carry it in your pocket without fear the cap will slip off. The pen is in good condition. The black hard rubber has browned some. It had no original chasing. The cap threads with just a quarter twist. No more is needed. The cap is also an originally clip less model as with many of these older Watermans. The imprints are pretty crisp. It does have quite a few teeth marks on the section around the nib. The nib is a nice XF super flex nib that goes from 0.3mm to 1.8mm pretty easily. Overall, a nice pen for around a hundred years old.
