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

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

Here is a lovely Watermant 52 1/2 V with a ring top in red ripple hard rubber. The red ripple hard rubber does show some fading and thus a bit of dulling of the original red ripple color, but it still has plenty of color left. The imprints are very crisp with little to no fading. The gold-filled trim is also in excellent condition with no signs of brassing on the lever, band, and ring top. The Waterman #2 14kt. nib is a very fine (XXF) and lovely writing nib. It is quite smooth for how fine it is. The flex on this pen is in on the stiffer side of super flex, but the responsiveness is superb. Although the max width of the line isn’t enormous (1.5mm), it is plenty large enough to get quality line variation due to the XXF nib and to the snappy responsiveness of the nib. A beautiful little pen with impressive writing abilities.
