Waterman 52V Persian – SUPER FLEX (SOLD)

Waterman 52V Persian – SUPER FLEX (On Ebay)

One of the prettiest pen styles Waterman made, in my opinion, is the Persian. Here is a Waterman 52V in Persian style. The original green has turned color as many/ most of these have to a golden brown on most of the pen. Nevertheless, the celluloid body still looks stunning. The gold-filled cap and band have slight bit of brassing: some on the ball of the clip, and a tiny bit on the edge of the band. The lever has some impressions on it, but the gold-filed overlay has held up. The black hard rubber section has also browned some. The 14kt. Waterman #2 is an elegant, springy XF that writes smooth with good flow. The flex comes quite easy on this nib and goes up 1.7mm (BB+) and it has excellent responsiveness. It’s a great pen for good, crisp flex writing or just adding some flair to your normal writing.
