Bentley is launching not only fantastic and exclusive cars, but also unique accessories. 90 years on, Bentley’s partner, Graf von Faber-Castell has created a truly unique set of writing instruments in tribute to this race and to Barnato himself.
Not only does their design reflect the decades of performance and elegance that succeed him, but his handwritten signature imprinted on the cap ensures his authentic presence endures.
Bentley and Graf von Faber-Castell have been in partnership since 2018 sharing a passion for unrivalled craftsmanship and unmistakeable design. The spirit of Bentley legend Woolf Barnato lives on through the latest collaboration between the two brands, with writing instruments that combine modern luxury with extraordinary timelessness.
Each exquisite pen within the new series features a lacquered metal barrel in the characteristic dark ‘racing’ green that is often associated with Barnato. The barrel is carefully hand-guilloched in the signature diamond pattern that forms a strong part of Bentley’s own design language. The chrome-plated front and end section of the pen also gleams in a dark green glaze. The cap is adorned with the iconic Bentley B, Bentley-style knurling and Woolf Barnato’s original, handwritten signature as a reminder of the extraordinary spirit that lives on at Bentley today.
Just 1,930 pieces have been made by Graf von Faber-Castell and Bentley to honour the year of the famous “Blue Train” Race in 1930, and the edition number is engraved on the threaded ring of each pen.
This series features three options; the Fountain pen with a high-quality stainless steel nib, available in widths M, F, EF and B and with a cartridge converter system; the Rollerball pen with precision point that glides smoothly over the paper; and the Ballpoint pen equipped with a large capacity refill in standard size.
