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

This Waterman 12 1/2 eyedropper is in excellent condition. There is minimal fading to the black hard rubber and very little wear to the chasing. The chasing and color on the cap is mint. The body is just a bit faded with a bit of wear. The imprints are still very crisp. The nickel plated clip looks great, but it does have some slight discoloring around the patent date. It’s not wear, but I couldn’t polish it off. There are some teeth marks around the section (see pic). The 14kt. Waterman #2 is a fantastic super flex nib. It is very snappy with good range. It writes smooth as a XF and goes all the way up to 1.8mm. This is a very thin pen. About pencil width. A great little pen.
