Waterman 14 with 14kt. Gold Band – Super Flex (SOLD)

Waterman 14 with 14kt. Gold Band – Super Flex  (On Ebay)

This Waterman 14 eyedropper in black hard rubber is trimmed out with a gold-filled clip and a solid 14kt. gold large band on the barrel. The initials “W.E.L.” are etched into the band in a beautiful script. The chasing on the pen is worn smooth and only partially visible on the barrel. I am not sure whether the cap is worn completely smooth or if it never had any chasing. The 14kt. gold band covers the original barrel imprints. The “14” on the end of the barrel is clearly readable. The hard rubber has faded to a dark, blackish brown. The 14kt. Waterman #4 nib is a smooth writing F (0.4mm) that is not overly wet. It has excellent flex capabilities going up to a BBB+ line (1.8mm). Unfortunately, the nib has a tiny crack extending from the breather hole back towards the “Waterman” imprint, though it goes only about half way to the imprint. The flex comes pretty easy and is pretty responsive.
