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 brown. The body is more black than the cap. The chasing has also faded some, but it does have texture left. More on the cap than the body. The nickel plate lever and ring top look pretty good, but they do have some wear to them mostly on the edges of the lever box. Imprints are still readable and pretty decent. The 14kt. Waterman #2 nib is a lovely, very smooth writing F (0.4mm), and it has some great flex going up to 1.9mm. Flex is pretty easy and quite responsive. A good solid super flex nib on a one of my favorite Waterman models.
