Waterman 52 1/2V  – Super Flex  (On Ebay)

Here is a BCHR Waterman 52 1/2V in collector’s quality condition. There is no fading of the hard rubber that I see. It is still jet black and shiny. The chasing is still crisp, as are the imprints. There is a slight bit of wear on the box of the lever, but nothing else. And to add to all that the 14kt. Waterman #2 nib is a wonderful, soft flex nib. Normally, it writes as a soft and smooth XF with about a medium flow. And it flexes with ease up to 1.8mm (BBB). It is also wonderfully responsive making good, crisp flexing come with ease. And the feed has no trouble keeping up. It is a wonderful example of an incredibly well-preserved Waterman with fantastic flex.
