Waterman 52 – Super Flex  (On Ebay)

Here is a nice Waterman 52 in BCHR. The hard rubber is faded a bit to a dark grayish brown. There does not appear to be any plate loss to the nickel plated trim, but there is some scratching and wear. Side imprint is worn and only readable in parts, but the “52” on the back of the barrel is clear. This is an unique 52 as it had threads that are inset to the barrel (see pic). Usually the threads are flush or occasionally wrapping around the outside of the barrel. This is the first 52 I’ve seen with threads like this. The 14kt. Waterman #2 is a nice writing XF (0.3mm) with a medium wetness. It flexes up to BB or 1.7mm. It isn’t a huge range and really most of your flexing will be in the 1.1-1.4mm range, but the nib is quite responsive, and does not require a lot of pressure. It also does small, detail flex work quite nicely.
