Waterman 412 Sterling Silver Filigree- Wet Noodle (See Price Here)
Here is the classic Waterman 12 with a beautiful sterling sliver filigree overlay (thus the “4” in “412”). The hard rubber underneath the overlay is still very dark and black or nearly black. There are some small dings on the top of the cap, and the ball of the clip is missing. Otherwise, the overall is in very good condition with only light scratches. There is also no personalization on the body. The 14kt. Waterman #2 is a wonderfully wet XF. It’s soft and smooth and just about everything you could want in a vintage nib. That includes flex, which this nib has plenty of. With light pressure this XF goes up to BBB (1.8mm), and the feed has no issues keeping up. Responsiveness is also impressive for a wet eyedropper. Overall, this is a fantastic specimen of all that was right with vintage Waterman eyedroppers.
