[SOLD]Waterman 52 1/2v Wet Noodle Boxed Set $200
[SOLD]Waterman 52 1/2v Wet Noodle Boxed Set
Very fortunate to have such lovely flex pens lately. This one has one flaw and that is the chipped cap lip that broke off cleanly and stops right at the wide cap band. The break is about 7mm. The set is boxed with its instruction sheet that is in almost perfect condition. No writing and no tears, and only had creases from the folds which is from the factory. I plan on scanning this to keep a scanned copy for myself since its the best I've seen. The matching pencil is jet black and looks brand new/unused. The chasing is very deep on both, and the hard rubber on the pen is also very black, but when compared to the pencil seems one shade lighter. Imprints are superb, with just a touch of wear on the model imprint, but fully legible with the naked eye. There are a few bite marks on the butt end of the barrel, and it actually looks better in person. Threads are excellent and the ringtop cap screws on smooth/snug. The original Waterman's Ideal 14k gold Canadian made nib is a wet noodle with huge amount of flex. Writes from a XF-BBB+ with excellent responsiveness. Gold trim is excellent with no wear whatsoever on the lever, and only some light scratches on the wide cap band. Both pieces un-monogrammed. Has a new sac, and ready for a new home. Please check pics for a better description. Writing sample is done on .5cm grid 90 gsm Clairefontaine paper. Measurements: 11cm capped, 14cm posted, and 10.3cm unposted.
