Waterman 52V – Good/Super Flex

Waterman 52V – GOOD/ SUPER FLEX (On Ebay)

Here is a good Waterman 52V in BCHR with nickel trim. The BCHR has browned to a dark brown. The chasing has worn some but still has a little bit of texture and is visible. Imprints are good and crisp. The nickel plated trim looks pretty good. A little bit of scuffing on the clip but no plate loss that I could see. The Waterman #2 14kt. nib is a smooth writing XF (0.3mm). It is about a 4 of 10 in wetness. The flex on this nib is a bit difficult to categorize. It’s on the stiffer side of super flex with decent responsiveness. It’s really on the border between good and super flex. Flow keeps up well with flexing, so you won’t have much or any railroading to worry about. Overall, a nice 52V.
