Waterman 3 – Good Flex (SOLD)

Waterman 3 – GOOD FLEX   (On Ebay)

This Waterman 3 is in overall good condition. The chrome trim looks pretty good, but there is some minor to the clip and lever (see pics). There is a spot of discoloration on the back of the cap (see pic) where the dark green celluloid turned to a shade of lighter green and what looks like a crack that forms from crazing, but I have never seen crazing on these Waterman pens so I’m not sure what caused it. I doubt that the spot will spread. The 14kt. Waterman #2 is a wet and smooth writing XF (0.3mm) and it flexes to a nice BB (1.5mm). This is a very nice flex nib that I graded “good flex” just because it is a touch firmer than a “super flex.” But it does not take a great amount of pressure to achieving some nice flexing and it has some good responsiveness.
