Waterman 12 Eye Dropper – Wet Noodle (On Ebay)
This is a Waterman 12 eyedropper in smooth black hard rubber (no original chasing). The hard rubber is still pretty dark with minimal browning. The imprints are faded but you can still read them. The accommodation clip (it had no original clip) is in pretty good condition, though it does have some plate loss on the actually clip part. It appears to be nickel plated over bronze. The nib is a very wet fine and is very flexible. It is a very nice, responsive, flex nib with great ease of flex. It also writes wet and smooth. The nib does unfortunately have a very small crack coming out of the breather hole in the right side, which I could pick up in the picture. In the interest of full disclosure, this nib was also recently retipped by Greg Minuskin.
