Ever see a Waterford W-13?
Waterfords are beautiful and desireable because of the elegance of their simplicity.
Chrome is bad ... it destroys frames, and gets ugly real fast. If you want that look, use stainless steel lugs.
The Waterford decals, like the Paramount decals of old are also elegant and simple.
But I'll agree that Waterford needs a nice headbadge ...
