The Conway Stewart Winston Dartmoor uses one of the best-loved and most distinctive Conway Stewart fountain pen shapes that brings a fresh, modern style to the timeless oversize flat top look. With a slight taper to the barrel end and a gently rounded cap top, the Conway Stewart Winston Dartmoor holds true to the classic 1920s styling that made Conway Stewart famous. Dartmoor is a rich peaty colour that perfectly reflects the high Devon moorland after which it is named and which has been a favourite with Conway Stewart collectors for many years.

Product Description

The Conway Stewart Winston Dartmoor is named in honour of Sir Winston Churchill, the best known and perhaps most respected British Prime Minister of the 20th Century. He was larger than life and had opinions to match!

This version of the Winston is in Dartmoor acrylic with polished gold fittings. For those who are unfamiliar with the colour, it is named after the upland area of Devon in South West England, close to the former Conway Stewart factory in Plymouth. It’s a wild and desolate place made famous by Conan Doyle’s ‘Hounds of the Baskervilles’ and this dark peaty brown, almost black colour, flecked with bracken, suits it perfectly. It’s not an ostentatious colour; it’s more refined, understated and professional than many other Conway Stewart acrylics and for that reason has always been popular with pen enthusiasts.

The barrel is set off with a thin gold ring at the bottom, and another gold band at the section, while the cap features a pair of thin gold rings. In line with all of the Winston range, the Winston Dartmoor is available with a Twist-fill mechanism only and comes fitted with one of our Flag 18ct gold nibs. They are available in Fine, Medium and Broad to suit your writing style and each nib bears the distinctive Flag logo.

The Conway Stewart Winston Dartmoor is the ideal choice if you prefer a large pen; one that stands out in a crowd, but which still stays true to the classic style and feel of a classic vintage Conway Stewart design. The top mounted clip allows the pen to sit low in your pocket, making the Winston a more practical choice for everyday use, and there is a carefully balanced solid brass liner to the barrel which gives this model a comfortable heft without making it too heavy for comfortable use.

The Conway Stewart Winston Dartmoor is inspired by the great man and the result is a substantial pen robustly built with subtle accents of solid gold.

Each pen is housed in an original Conway Stewart black leather 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.

Delivery of your Conway Stewart Winston Dartmoor

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. If required for a particular date, please let us know and we’ll do everything we can to make sure it reaches you in time.

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.
