Waterman 52 (Factory Italic) – Good Flex (SOLD)

Waterman 52 (Factory Italic) – Good Flex  (On Ebay)

Here is a Waterman 52 in BCHR with gold filled trim. The body on this pen is in excellent condition. It is still very black with minimal fading. All the imprints are very clear and crisp. Sadly the clip is missing, or this would be a near mint condition pen. The gold-filled band has some lovely floral repousse work and the initials “J.L.C.” engraved. There is little to no brassing on the trim that I can see. The 14kt. Waterman #2 nib is a really nice XF factory italic nib (0.5mm). It is smooth, about medium wetness, and has superb line variation for it’s size. It has also some flex going up to 1.5mm pretty easily.

SIZE:  5 1/4″ Capped

NIB: Waterman #2, XF to BB (0.5mm-1.5mm),  GOOD FLEX (See “Grading Flex Nibs” for How I Grade)
