Waterman 52 – Super Flex (SOLD)

Waterman 52 – Super Flex (On Ebay)

Here is a Waterman 52 in BCHR. The BCHR is browned to a dark brown and the chasing is worn and pretty smooth, though mostly visible. The nickel trim looks to be in good condition. I’m guessing this pen is from a French market with an after factory nickel band that is quite distinctive. The original lever was either lost or removed and instead replaced with a made in France Waterman “Ideal” accommodation clip. These clips are rather valuable in and of themselves and are gorgeous in my opinion. If you look close you can see a black stripe on the body just below the cap likely because this cap was a replacement. It is still a genuine 52 cap and threads beautifully. The 14kt. Waterman #2 nib is a very wet writing F (0.4mm) that has some nice springy flex up to near BBB (1.7mm). Very classy looking vintage Waterman with some nice flex.
