Waterman 12 1/2 P.O.C. – Super Flex
Here is vintage Watermen that you don’t see terribly often: the 12 1/2 P.O.C. This is an eyedropper with a screw on cap. It is basically the same size as the 12 but thinner (thus the 1/2). The pen is in outstanding condition. The black rubber is still very black on most of the pen. Just a bit of fading on the cap. The chasing is also quite good. On the top of the cap it looks like new, but it is a little more faded on the rest of the pen. The imprints are crisp. I believer that the cap originally had a gold band as well as the lip is slightly indented where the band used to be. The 14kt. Waterman #2 is a beautiful nib (sorry for all the fuzz in the pics. Stupid Kleenex). It writes as a smooth and wet F (0.5mm) that is slightly oblique. You can see it in the pics. The flex is quite large ranging up 2.0mm. Responsiveness is pretty good as well. Overall, this is a great eyedropper of a rarer variety in great condition.

How To Buy
Typically, I sell my pens on Ebay, however, occasionally I acquire pens that are just too valuable to sell in that format. Some may eventually find their way to Ebay. Some will not. I do my best to come up with a fair price, but pricing vintage pens is very difficult. If you are interested in buying one of these pens simply email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will send you a Paypal invoice, at which time you have 2 days to pay. Shipping is $5.95 within the U.S. I charge my cost for international shipping, and I generally give the buyer his/ her choice of options. Pens will ship within 2 business days of payment. My normal refund policy applies. If you feel I have not described the pen well or are unhappy with my restoration work, you may return for full refund. Buyer pays return shipping.
