Waterman 52 – Super Flex (SOLD)

Waterman 52 – Super Flex (On Ebay)

Here is a Waterman 52 in BCHR that is in excellent condition. The BCHR is still very black with just a little bit of fading. The chasing on this pen is crisp as are the imprints. The “52” on the end of the barrel still has the red paint. There is minimal wear on the clip and lever with no brassing. The pen looks new. It still has the shine of a new pen. The 14kt. Waterman #2 nib is also a beauty. It is a long and slender tined super flex. The nib does have a slight ding on the end of the right tine just behind the tipping, but it has no effect on the writing of the pen. With normal pressure, this nib writes as a super fine “XXF.” There is just a hint of scratch as you would expect from so fine a nib. The nib flexes wonderfully up to BBB (1.8mm), so a huge range going from XXF to BBB. As you would expect from so fine a nib, it has a beautiful snappy and responsive feel to it. A great nib for artists and scripts like Copperplate. This pen is rare and desirable in multiple ways. First, it’s not easy to find BCHR Waterman 52’s in this kind of condition. And second, the most desirable nib out there right now is a XXF-BBB flex nib.
