The Conway Stewart Series 100 COMMANDER has been designed to celebrate and commemorate the achievements of those Royal Navy Commanders who served at sea during WWII, protecting vital convoys in the North Atlantic.
It is based on the Series 100 which is a mid-sized pen launched in the 1950's with a gentle taper to the cap and the barrel which is known as the "torpedo-shape"; a reminder of the perils the ships faced every day as they crossed the Atlantic.
On the cap are three 23ct gold-plated Sterling Silver rings and the top ring has been hand-crafted to give the rope effect of the sleeve insignia of Commander RN. The middle cap ring is stamped with English hall-marks to show its quality and purity.
On the barrel, it is engraved with the Conway Stewart logo, "THE COMMANDER", the limited edition number and "Made in England".
The top-mounted gold-plated clip allows the pen to sit low in a shirt pocket, making it a practical choice for everyday use.
Limited Edition of 100 pens worldwide
Available as a fountain pen or a rollerball. The fountain pen is fitted with an 18ct Gold Conway Stewart nib (available in Extra Fine, Fine, Medium or Broad - which determines the writing line width).
Each pen comes in an outer box which also has the sleeve insignia of Commander RN on the lid and inside is a Conway Stewart black leather presentation box which also serves as a showcase pen stand for your desk.
The inspiration for making this pen came from Glyn L Evans, a member of the Honourable Company of Master Mariners, and an author of several books, including "The Maritime Art of Kenneth D Shoesmith".
