Waterman 52 – Super Flex

Waterman 52 – Super Flex

Here is a great Waterman 52 in BCHR with nickel trim. The pen is in pretty good condition overall. The hard rubber has faded to a dark, brownish, grayish black. The chasing is faded some on the body (more so than the cap), though there is still some texture to it but not much. Plenty of texture still on the cap. There is some wear on the clip but only brassing on the very bottom of the ball. The lever has some wear on the edges of the box but no brassing. The imprints are worn but readable. The 14kt. Waterman #2 is a surprisingly smooth XXF. It does not have the feedback you expect from such a fine nib, though there is still a small amount due to its fineness. The flex comes pretty easily and has a good range going from 0.2mm to 1.5mm (BB). The responsiveness of this nib is really outstanding making for some really nice, controlled flexing. Overall…it’s a 52 in good condition with a great nib. That’s about all you can ask for.
