Here we have a lovely Waterman 55 in jet black chased hard rubber. This pen has its large original Waterman Ideal No. 5 14kt gold nib which is super flexible. F-BBBB 2.5mm+ extreme line variation. A big soft nib excellent for Copperplate expressive writing. Nib has plenty of Iridium tipping, writes smoothly with excellent flow and is flawless. Original clip cap which threads straight with nickel trim in awesome shape. No chips, marks, blemishes or personalizations. Again the rubber has very good color, however the chasing and imprints are moderately worn as seen in the pictures. The 55 is a large pen at 7 inches posted, 5.5 inches capped and with considerable girth. It is pictured next to a Waterman 52 for reference. It is a lever filler, with a new bladder which fills and empties as designed. The nib has been tuned to write flawlessly. This is a really awesome and rather large pen/nib which is a blast to write with. Check out the YouTube writing sample!
