Waterman 52V Persian – SUPER FLEX (SOLD)


Waterman 52V – SUPER FLEX (On Ebay)

Here a gorgeous Waterman 52V in Waterman’s “Persian” style. There are no number markings on this pen, but I think this style only came in a Lady Patrica, 94, and this size. So this is shorter than a 52, but about the same girth. The Persian celluloid is an early celluloid and really shimmers in person with a complex depth to it. The only real blemish on this pen is that it has the typical color change on the barrel, but the cap still looks like it’s original green color. The gold filled trim looks great with no signs of brassing on the lever, clip, or band. The imprint is also in good condition. The 14kt. Waterman #2 is a superb super flex nib. It has a great range from F to BBB (0.4mm – 2.1mm). Ease of flex and responsiveness are fantastic and come very, very close to wet noodle status. It writes wet and smooth as nice F. A beautiful pen that is not all that easy to obtain.
