Waterman 54 – Super Flex (SOLD)

Waterman 54 – Super Flex  (On Ebay)

This is a great vintage Waterman 54 in BCHR. The chasing on this pen is worn smooth. In fact, the chasing pattern is even hard to see and the only imprint visible is the “54.” The color has faded to a dark brown. There is a large and beautiful gold-filled band on the barrel with some initials engraved in script. There is a bit of wear on the band, but it still looks quite good. There is a little bit of brassing on the top edge of the cap band and a little bit on the edges of the lever; otherwise, the trim is in good condition. Unfortunately, there is what looks like a small burn mark on the top of the barrel. The 14kt. Waterman #4 is a great nib that writes as a soft, smooth XF (0.3mm) and has medium wetness. Great writer. It has some nice and quite responsive flex going up to BBB+ (1.8mm). You can do some nice flex work with this one.
