Waterman 12 (Near Mint) – Super Flex

Waterman 12 (Near Mint) – Super Flex  (On Ebay)

Here is an almost perfect Waterman 12 eyedropper in BCHR. The black hard rubber is in rare good condition. There is very minimal fading, and it is still black and shiny. The chasing looks brand new with virtually no wear. The imprints are also crisp as new. The only small defect is that the section has a few light teeth marks (see pic). The 14kt. Waterman #2 is also a superb Fine (0.4mm) that writes on the wet side and is soft and buttery smooth. It has a huge flex range going from F (0.4mm) to BBB+ (1.9mm). The flex is quite wet with average responsiveness, but with that kind of range it doesn’t have to be super responsive. It’s not a wet noodle but flex comes pretty easy. Rare condition, beautiful writer, with great flex.
