Waterman 52V – SUPER FLEX (On Ebay)

Here a nice Waterman 52V in BCHR. This is one of my favorite sized Watermans. It has the bulk of the 52 and feels like one when posted, but is also a compact ring top. The black hard rubber has faded some to a blackish brown. The body is more black than the cap. The chasing is still pretty good, though a bit worn. There are a few teeth marks on the section. The imprints are all pretty good. The nickel plated lever box is in great condition. The 14kt. #2 Waterman nib is a wet and glassy smooth F (0.4mm) that flexes all the way up to 1.9mm. This nib is on the stiffer end of super flex, but when you factor in the line variation and it’s responsiveness it is still a very nice flex nib. It’s a great every day writer with nice flex.
