Out with the old, in with the new. This year, S. T. Dupont have completely replace their Classique ballpoint range with a set of four new finishes. A reprise of S. T. Dupont's very first pen line, the Classique ballpoint. Pure, simple shapes for a classic but resolutely up-to-date pen. A timeless design. The S.T. Dupont signature appears on the central ring. Each piece is unique thanks to an identification number engraved on the side of the clip. Each pen converts between a ballpoint and a pencil; both ballpoint and pencil mechanisms are included.
You can see more information on the new S. T. Dupont Classique Ballpoint pens here.

The beautiful new Omas 360 Vintage Celluloid Limited Edition pens are due to hit the UK in the next few days. Emotions and surprises emerge from the new 360 Vintage Limited Edition.
The 360 model, with its triangular shape, is extremely ergonomic, specifically studied to maximize the pleasure of writing and make the moment of writing unique and unrepeatable. An extraordinary experience also thanks to the precious celluloid which is made of, warm and pleasant to the touch.
Two colourings: the Wild, very modern, and, for the first time on this model, the fine Arco.
Three rings embellish the cap and make the Limited Edition unique and elegant.
Limited and Numbered Edition made up of 136 piston filled Fountain Pens and 36 Rollerballs in Wild celluloid and rhodium plated trim, 36 piston filled Fountain Pens and 36 Rollerballs in Arco celluloid and gold plated trim, 36 piston filled Fountain Pens in Arco celluloid and rose gold plated trim, 36 piston filled Fountain Pens in Arco celluloid and rhodium plated trim.

Announcing a new limited editon pen from Conway Stewart to mark the 100th anniversary of World War 1. Lest we forget. The issue of any new Conway Stewart limited edition always generates significant interest from retailers and collectors around the world. But when the edition is limited to only 100 pieces and commemorates a global event, then its importance cannot be over-emphasised.
At first glance, the Churchill WW1 Limited Edition appears to be similar to the Classic Black version, but look more closely and you'll find important differences which make this a 'stand-out' pen that will be sought after by collectors long after the edition has closed.
Firstly, the fittings are all in hallmarked sterling silver - rather than the traditional gold fittings of all the regular Churchill editions.
Secondly, there is a subtle but very distinctive hexagonal pattern engraved on the cap and barrel which makes this pen hugely tactile.
Finally, a subtly-placed red poppy emblem in the top of the cap ensures the importance of the occasion - the 100th Anniversary of the start of the first World War in 1914 - will always be remembered.
The poppy is made from vibrant poppy red and black vitreous enamel with sterling silver surround and centre piece - using techniques which were perfected by Carl Faberge in the early part of the 20th century and which are maintained today by our proud craftsmen and women.
Supplied with a choice of either the Deluxe Churchill presentation box with cigar, book of quotations and a bottle of Conway Stewart ink, or the Standard leather box which doubles as a desk stand for your pen.
