Waterman 0552 1/2 – Super Flex

Waterma 0552 1/2 – Super Flex   (On Ebay)

Here is a beautiful Waterman 0552 1/2 V in the golds-filled basket weave filigree. The pen is in very nice condition. The black hard rubber underneath the overlay, or the very little that you can see of it, has faded some to a dark brown. What’s inside the cap (bottom part of the barrel and section) are still very black. The overlay itself is in very nice condition minimal wear throughout. The end of the barrel does have wear do to posting the cap, but there are none of the usual dings. The gold-filled lever is in pristine condition as is the ring top. I don’t see any brassing on the pen. The 14kt. Waterman #2 nib is a very nice XF. It writes with a good flow and is soft and beautifully smooth. The flex on this nib goes from XF (0.3mm) all the way up to BB (1.6mm) with ease. It also has that quality, bouncy responsiveness so desirable in vintage flex nibs. This is a sturdy, portable luxury item and conversation piece that is also a fine instrument for daily writing and flex art.
