[SOLD]Waterman 52 1/2v BCHR w/Box $135
[SOLD]Waterman 52 1/2v BCHR w/Box
A very nice vintage Waterman pen with awesome flex. The cap does have a few scratches on it and is missing the ring on top of the cap. The chasing is phenomenal and is very pronounced. The imprints on the barrel are good and legible to the naked eye although not perfectly deep and crisp. The model imprint on the butt end is very good and reads, "52 1/2v". The lever has excellent details on the Ideal Globe with excellent gold plating. It does however not sit perfectly flush against the pen and hangs up about 1mm in the rested position. This is only cosmetic and the pen expells and withdraws ink perfectly fine. Has a very sought after 14k gold New York #2 Ideal nib which flexes from Fine-BBB easily. Giving amazing line variation when wanted to write beautiful exotic scripts if your penmanship is up to par. Beautiful vintage flex without breaking the bank. Hard rubber is dark with minimal color loss. Please check pics for a better description. Writing sample is done on .5cm light grid print on HP 24lb laserjet paper. Measurements for the pen are: 14cm capped, 15cm posted, and 13cm unposted.
