[SOLD]Waterman 52 Red Ripple $145

[SOLD]Waterman 52 Red Ripple

I always enjoy restoring these pens, because they are such great writers. A full size Waterman 52 in Red Ripple is a must have if you've never tried one. When I think of Waterman I always think of the Red Ripple. These pens in full hard rubber usually has some color fade with time, but this one is very vibrant with excellent, deep, and crisp imprints. Gold trim looks great and shows a hint of wear on the edges of the Ideal Globe lever. Cap is missing its clip, so you see the two rivet holes, but no cracks or any other major damage worth mentioning. The feed is rippled as well which delivers ink flow like a champ to the wonderful Waterman's 14k Ideal nib. The nib writes in a Medium when unflexed, and flexes to a BB+ with moderate pressure. Fitted with a new sac, and ready for a new home. Please check pics for a better description. Writing sample is done on .5cm light grid print on HP 24lb laserjet paper. Measurements are: 13.5cm capped, 13cm unposted, and 17cm posted(HUGE!).

Asking price is $145 shipped within CONUS via Priority with tracking. USA buyers preferred. International buyers please PM or Email for shipping rates.
