Waterman 52 1/2V Red Mottled – Super Flex (SOLD)

Waterman 52 1/2V Red Ripple – Super Flex  (On Ebay)

This Waterman comes in a red mottled hard rubber that has minimal fading. The gold filled trim is in good condition. There is some brassing on the very edges of the band, and a tiny ding on the lever. The cap is also missing the original ring top. The imprints are crisp and easily read. There is however a hairline crack in the cap. It’s very fine and hard to see. With the band on the cap lip the crack is well contained and stable and very unlikely to grow anymore, but it is there. The 14kt. Waterman #2 nib is a beauty. This is a very fine XXF (0.25mm) that writes beautifully smooth with an elegant, soft spring like feel. It’s just a joy to use. It also has some easy flex that goes up to BB (1.6mm). It has decent responsiveness as well. It’s a lovely little pen.
