[SOLD]Waterman 52 Red Ripple 3x9k Bands Wet Noodle $325
[SOLD]Waterman 52 Red Ripple 3x9k Bands Wet Noodle
Quite a special pen that I have to offer here. The 52 from Waterman is a amazing pen, but the ripple versions are a bit harder to find. Add to it that this pen has 3 9k solid gold bands which are hallmarked, and we got a gem among gems. There are 2 bands on the barrel and one on the cap lip which has a functional purpose that prevents the cap lip from chipping. The imprint is full and legible although the pics don't do it justice. No cracks or any damage to the pen. The cap does seem to be from another pen as the body has the older woodgrain ripple and the cap has the more aggressive later red ripple pattern. Clip has "Waterman's" and then the Ideal globe logo. Lever has a little bit of wear, but functions flawlessly. The nib is 14k solid gold Waterman's Canada made #2 nib, and is a wet noodle that writes from a F/M-BBB. Very smooth and responsive nib which has a bit of shading behavior. This pen is perfect for a special gift or a beautiful pen that will benefit any collection. Has 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 for the pen are: 13.5cm capped, 16.7cm posted, and 13cm unposted.
