Waterman 12 Eye Dropper 

Here is old and interesting Waterman 12 Eyedropper. It’s a bit smaller than a typical 12 measuring in just under 5″. The chasing on this pen is worn almost completely off. Imprints are worn but readable. It has faded to a dark brown color, although the cap has some tan mixed in with the dark brown. It is also missing the clip from the cap. I have graded the flex as “Super Flex” even though it doesn’t have the ability to make huge lines. Nevertheless, it is a XXF nib that flexes easily with good responsiveness. Detailed, small print flexing is easy and crisp with this pen. The nib does have a very small crack coming out of the air hole. Too small to pic up in the photo, but it is there. This is a fun pen to play around with.

Waterman 52 1/2V – MEDIUM FLEX (SOLD)

Waterman 52 1/2V  – Medium Flex  (On Ebay)

This a BCHR Waterman 52 1/2 V in decent condition. It has browned some. More of a dark chocolate color. The chasing is worn fairly smooth but still visible. The imprint on the side is barely visible. The “52 1/2V” is worn but readable. There is a little bit of plating on the lever box, but the lever itself is in good condition. The ring top is also missing. Another nib that was difficult to grade. I would say it’s either a high end “Medium flex” or a low end “Good flex.” The nib is very smooth both as normal writer and in flexing. A great little portable pen.
