Waterman 52V – SUPER FLEX (On Ebay)

This is a Waterman 52 Red Ripple in gold trim. The hard rubber is faded some, but not too bad. The imprints are good and crisp. The trim shows wear. There are a few spots on the clip with some plate loss (see pics), there is brassing on the lever and band. A few small scratches can also be seen on the pen. It is still a very nice looking vintage pen. The nib is not a Waterman Ideal #2, but don’t let that fool you. This is a fantastic, quality 14kt. nib that is at least as good as a Waterman. It is a nice, wet and glassy smooth XF/F nib with super flex ability. It flexes up to 1.8mm and has pretty good responsiveness.
