Waterman 12 1/2 PSF – Super Flex (SOLD)

Waterma 12 1/2 PSF – Super Flex (On Ebay)

Here is a Waterman 12 1/2 PSF in BCHR, which is the equivalent of the 52 1/2. It just predates the updated Waterman numbering system. The hard rubber has faded to a dark brown. The chasing is still visible on the pen, but it has worn smooth and much of it. The imprints are all still looking sharp, and the nickel lever looks great. Unfortunately, there is a crack in the lip of the cap (see pic). The 14kt. Waterman #2 is a smooth writing XF (0.3mm) that is plenty wet. It flexes up BB (1.6mm). The ease of flex on this nib is just on the firmer of “super flex,” but the responsiveness is in the “super flex” range, so its right on the border between the two.
