Waterman 555 – Medium FLEX (On Ebay)

Here a beautiful Waterman 555 in a grey pearl and navy pinstriped celluloid. This pen is just over 5″ and is a bit thicker than a 52 (12mm at the barrel vs. the 11mm of a 52), so it is a good sized pen. These pens have the “Deluxe” three banded (thin-thick-thin) cap with military clip. This were top tier pens from Waterman and carry the large #5 nib. This pen is in excellent condition. The body is in great shape with only some light scratching. The clip does have some marks on in it (see pic); otherwise the trim looks great. Even the “Ideal” globe on top of the cap looks great. The 14kt. Waterman #5 nib is a much sought after XXF (0.1mm!) that writes pretty smoothly for how fine it is. This pen only flexes up to about 1.3mm, but with an XXF as your starting point you don’t need much. In the right hands this is still a pretty good flex nib.
