The Duro Marine Blue is a beautiful blue marble resin that conjures up in the imagination the magic of the sea. The Cap has a single wide 9ct gold band which can be engraved with one’s initials or a special date. There are 3 other 9ct gold thin rings that adorn this pen; above the nib holder, before the blind barrel end and the tassie ring.

Limited Edition – only 25 available

First launched in 1924, the Duro is a timeless classic British pen from Conway Stewart, the right size for the pocket and treasured by both the men and women who use this pen in their daily professional lives. Its timeless lines are pure 1920’s, but are as contemporary and valid today as when the pen was first designed. The Duro uses the same iconic Conway Stewart clip as fitted to the Churchill mounted on the side of the cap. The cap tassie, the nib holder and the barrel blind end are all in high density polished black acrylic giving the Duro that classical look that is often referred to “Bracketed”.

Each fountain pen is housed in an original Conway Stewart black leatherette presentation box which doubles as an elegant desk display, and comes complete with Certificate of Authenticity, Conway Stewart User Guide and a special anti-tarnish polishing cloth to keep your pen in sparkling condition.

Available as a Fountain Pen or a Rollerball
The Conway Stewart Duro is available as a Fountain Pen with a choice of Extra Fine, Fine, Medium or Broad 18ct gold Flag 2-tone nibs,  or as a Rollerball with either Blue or Black refill in Medium or Fine.

Delivery

Because of the bespoke nature of all our pens – nib configurations, fitting options etc, we rarely have pens available ‘off the shelf’. As soon as we receive your order we will email you with a confirmation of your order and provide you with an estimate of the time required to assemble, configure and thoroughly test your pen. This is usually between 10 and 14 days, although in busy periods it could be up to 28 days.

Once your pen has passed quality control it will be carefully secured in its presentation box before being packed for despatch.

All our pens are despatched using Royal Mail and as soon as we have handed it over to Royal Mail, we will email you with a despatch confirmation. This email also provides you with a tracking number which will enable you to track your parcel.

UK Deliveries

For delivery to UK addresses we use the Special Delivery service which means your pen will be delivered within 24 hours, usually before 1pm, on the day following despatch. We advise you by email when your pen has been handed over to Royal Mail and provide tracking information so you can trace the whereabouts of your pen on the Royal Mail tracking website: https://www.royalmail.com/track-your-item . You will need to sign for your parcel on receipt.

International Deliveries

For delivery to overseas addresses we use Royal Mail’s International Signed For service which means you will need to sign for the parcel to confirm receipt. We advise you by email when your pen has been handed over to Royal Mail and provide tracking information so you can trace the whereabouts of your pen on the Royal Mail tracking website: https://www.royalmail.com/track-your-item. Once the parcel arrives in your country, your local postal service takes over responsibility for delivery, although you can still use Royal Mail’s ‘Track and Trace’ system. In some countries, you can use the Royal Mail tracking number we provide on your local postal service website. For example you can use Royal Mail Tracking numbers on the USPS website to track your parcel in the USA. In other countries you will need to check with your local postal service to see if they can track international parcels in this way.

If you have any doubts or reservations about the security of your national parcel delivery service, you can always ask for your pen to be delivered by one of the internationally recognised courier companies (Fedex, UPS etc). Just make a note when you order and we will be in touch regarding any additional charges for international courier delivery.

Filling Mechanism for your Conway Stewart Duro Pen: 

The Conway Stewart Duro Fountain Pen has a dual filling system. It is fitted with a converter (reservoir) which allows you to draw ink from a bottle or alternatively, you may remove the converter and use standard European ink cartridges. We will include 2 cartridges with your pen so you can start to use it immediately. If you prefer to use bottled ink, we recommend our own range of high quality ink, made in England and available in a range of colours. You will find details of colours available here: https://www.bespokebritishpens.co.uk/product/fountain-pen-ink/

The Conway Stewart Duro Rollerball uses a standard rollerball refill that is available from Bespoke British Pens here: https://www.bespokebritishpens.co.uk/product/rollerball-refills/  You can select from either blue or black refills in medium, fine or extra-fine widths.

Nibs available:

The Conway Stewart Duro Fountain Pen is fitted with one of our Flag semi-flexible 18ct gold nibs. You have a choice of Fine, Medium or Broad nibs to suit your writing style. Each nib is engraved with our distinctive Flag logo.

 Customised nibs also available

In addition to the standard Fine, Medium and Broad Flag nibs, there is an option to customise any nib to your own specification at an extra cost of £40.00 excluding VAT. For example, if you prefer to write with a Stub, Italic or Oblique nib, our nib wright, one of the UK’s most experienced nib mechanics, will undertake the work to your exact specification.
