Waterman 3V – Good Flex (SOLD)

Waterman 3V – Good Flex (On Ebay)

The Waterman 3V is very similar in size to the Waterman 52Vs. These came a bit later than the 52s and thus have bodies made of beautiful celluloid so rather than the more difficult to preserve hard rubber. But they still have hard rubber in all the places that matter (the section and feed). This pen’s body is black with marbled pearl and grey flecks. It’s quite stunning in person. There is very little wear on this pen, very few signs of use. The chrome plated trim is in great condition with only some very tiny blemishes on head of the lever and the bottom of the climb. But you can only see them if you look very closely. The body is sleek and shiny as new with all the flecks popping out. The 14kt. Waterman #2 nib is a buttery smooth writing F. It also flexes up to BB (1.5mm). The flex is a bit too stiff to be in the super flex category, but this nib is still superior to pretty all modern flex nibs. A gorgeous, quality vintage Waterman.
