[SOLD]Waterman 52 Red Ripple
Beautiful full size Waterman 52 Red Ripple!Nice full size 52 in Red Ripple pattern. The Ripple pattern is nice and aggressive like thin tiger stripes. Clip has excellent tension. Gold trim is superb shape. Imprints on the barrel are good, but shows some wear on the center line of imprints. Model imprint on but end is nice and deep. Threads are crisp and cap screws on smooth and snug. Hard rubber color is very deep and rich with little oxidation. Lever functions perfectly, and holds a ton of ink. The section has some scratches, but nothing that affects performance. The pen is all original which includes a ripple hard rubber feed, and most importantly the Waterman's Ideal 14k gold #2 nib. The nib is smooth and writes from a Fine to BBB. Beautiful Superflex nib. The nib does have a little bit of an indentation on top, but does not show on the bottom, and most importantly doesn't affect performance. 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.
