[SOLD]Waterman 52 Ringtop Flex Stub $145
[SOLD]Waterman 52 Ringtop Flex Stub
What a wonderful nib on this bad boy! A beautiful stub nib with awesome flex! The nib has full and plentiful tipping, and might be a factory stub. Writes with a Fine horizontal line and a Broad+ down stroke without flexing, and will flex to put down a BBB down stroke when extra line variation is needed. Even without pressure the nib writes awesome, and has that soft touch of many high quality nibs that provide a luxurious feel when writing. No cracks, chips, or bite marks. The chasing is all there, but not the strongest. The BCHR is a bit oxidized to a brown. The cap has a ringtop instead of a clip which is quite unusual for a full size 52, but back in the day all caps had nothing and a clip or ringtop was extra. Threads are excellent. Imprints are good. Trim on the lever is nice and shiny, and very detailed, and it functions flawlessly. Writing sample is done on .5cm grid 90 gsm Clairefontaine paper. Measurements: 13.5cm capped, 17cm posted, and 13cm unposted.
Asking price is $145 shipped within CONUS via Priority with tracking/insurance. USA buyers preferred. International buyers please PM or Email for shipping rates. I am not responsible for any duty fees incurred since I have no control over customs.
