Waterman 92V – Good Flex (SOLD)

Waterman 92V – Good Flex

Here is a nice little Waterman 92V. These are very similar in size to their predecessor, the 52V. They are made to feel like a 92 when posted. This pen is in great condition. The celluloid body has only very minor surface scratching that mostly buffed out. The gold filled trim looks good with little to no brassing. The name “A.A. Jewell” is engraved just below the lever. The Waterman #2 nib is a nice XXF/ XF. Wet for so fine a nib and decently smooth. The flex is a bit on the stiffer side but also has some good responsiveness, so I’ve graded in between “Good” and “Super” flex. Overall, this is a nice, portable pen.

Waterman 7 “Red” Nib – Super Flex / Wet Noodle (SOLD)

P1060565

Waterman 7 “Red” Nib – Super Flex / Wet Noodle  (SOLD)

Here is the iconic Waterman 7 in Red Ripple with the highly sought after and great all around “Red” nib. The red ripple hard rubber body on this pen is in nice condition. Very little fading can be seen. Side imprints are worn pretty smooth and mostly unreadable, though the “7” on the end of the barrel is still crisp. The gold-filled trim definitely has some wear. The clip looks pretty good with just a bit of brassing on the ball. The cap band has brassing on the top edge otherwise it looks good. And the lever looks like it was scuffed pretty good at some point in it’s life. The “Red” nib is the most well rounded nib of the 7’s offerings. It is usually a superb F with nice flex. This nib is a beautiful writer, wet and smooth, and just everything you want in a vintage nib. The flex I graded as “Super Flex” but is really on the border of Wet Noodle. Flex comes easily, is plenty wet, and has a large range going from F (0.4mm) to BBB (1.7mm). These 7s are a hot commodity with great resale value, and they really are great pens.
