[SOLD]Waterman 52 BCHR $150
[SOLD]Waterman 52 Black Chased Hard Rubber
Full size Waterman 52 in Black Chased Hard Rubber. A little bit of oxidation to the hard rubber, it is still black, but not jet black. No damage on the pen what so ever. No chips, bite marks, cracks, or gouges. Chasing is good although not excellent. It can easily be seen, but is not the deepest. Still adds beauty and vintage flare to this beautiful flex pen. Trim on lever is very good, and the Ideal lever has superb details. Imprints on the barrel are crisp and deep. One of the best set of imprints I've seen on these 52's. Model imprint not as deep as barrel imprints, but is all there and easily legible to the naked eye. The nib is great on this pen! It's the original Waterman 14k gold nib stamped Canada with the rest of the pen. It is a between a Full and Super Flex, and writes from a XF - BBB+. Very responsive nib as you can see from the writing sample. And its very very smooth for such a fine width. Most finer widths are not as smooth as the wider ones, but this one must've been used and taken care of and smoothed from the writing. Tipping is still present. It's not a huge amount, but unless you're writing lots of books with this pen it should last a lifetime. Pen has a new sac, and ready for a new home. Please check pics for a better description. Writing sample is done on .5cm grid on 90gsm Clairefontaine paper. Measurements for the pen are: 13.5cm capped, 17cm posted, and 13.3cm unposted.
