Waterman 74 – SUPER FLEX (SOLD)

Waterman 74 – Super Flex (On Ebay)

Here is a solid Waterman 74 eyedropper in black hard rubber. These pens were made when the 12s and 14s, etc. were phased out for lever fillers like the 52s. They have the size closer to a 52 but are eyedroppers. They have screw on caps and a nice well structured screw on section. They are high quality pens as you would expect from Waterman. This pen is smooth with no original chasing. The black has turned to a very dark brown-black. Imprints are worn and mostly unreadable though the “74” on the end is clear. The original clip fell off and was replaced by this accommodation clip that shows some wear but is in good condition. The 14kt. Waterman #4 is a superb, juicy fine stub (0.5mm) that will add some character to your writing. When flexed this nib goes up to BBB (1.8mm) with ease. It is quite responsive and has plenty of flow to keep up with pages of flexing. This is sturdy, superb eyedropper that will endure for many, many more years.
