W (SOLDaterman Lady Patricia – Super Flex

Waterman Lady Patricia – Super Flex (On Ebay)

Here is a Waterman Lady Patricia Persian. This pen definitely looks vintage.The chrome plated trim shows a fair bit of wear especially on the clip and band. The celluloid on the cap has darkened in spots. And there is an easy to miss crack near the top of the cap that runs horizontal about half way around the cap. The pearl end pieces are still present and still look quite nice. This 14kt. Waterman #2 surprised me. As a XF (0.3mm) writes very elegantly with a soft, smooth and bouncy feel. The flex range on this pen is not huge going from 0.3mm to 1.3mm. Some would call this a semi-flex but it is not to me. While the range isn’t huge the flex is quite soft and the bounce back is superb allowing for some pretty effortless quality flex writing.
