Waterman 12 – Super Flex (SOLD)

Waterman 12 – Super Flex  (On Ebay)

Here is a Waterman 12 eyedropper in BCHR. The black hard rubber has faded to a dark brown and the chasing on the pen, though still visible, has been worn smooth. The imprints, though, are still quite crisp and easily readable. At some point, the lip of this cap was probably chipped as about 1mm of the lip was trimmed off. This pen is clipless and was originally made that way. The 14kt. Waterman #2 is smooth writing F (0.4mm) that is surprisingly not super wet as is common with these vintage eyedroppers. It also has a soft, easy flex that ranges up to BBB (1.8mm). There is a very slight depression in the tines near the tip that you can see in certain lighting, but it does not affect the performance of the nib. For an eyedropper it has pretty good responsiveness for good crisp flex writing.
