Waterman 52V – Good/Super Flex (SOLD)

Waterman 52 – Good/Super Flex (On Ebay)

This is a Waterman 52V in BCHR in nice condition. The black hard rubber has faded a little to a very dark brown. It sill looks black in some light. The chasing is still visible and has some texture to it. The imprints on the side are worn, but they are mostly readable. The “52V” on the end of the barrel is good and crisp. The nickel filled trim looks great with very little signs of wear to them. The clip, however, is missing the ball. You probably wouldn’t know that unless you knew it was supposed to be there as it still works great as a clip and looks normal as well. The 14kt. Waterman #2 is a F with medium flow and just a hint of feedback. It’s definitely not scratchy but it’s not slippery either. The nib has some nice flex as well. It was a hard nib to grade. Ease of flex is in the super flex range but it doesn’t have a huge range of flex. But it does have some very nice responsiveness as well. I’d say this is right on the border between “good” and “super” on my scale. It’s a great Waterman in nice condition.
