Dunhill does it again

Looking back to the brand’s heritage of outfitting grand tours, dunhill presents the second Sentryman Explorer pen. Three interchangeable nibs, each with a bayonet closure, provide the owner with the choice of an18-karat gold fountain nib, pencil or ballpoint depending on mood or demand. However, the true magic of this particular writing instrument is the fact that it is also a torch.  Simply remove the tip of the barrel, and let there be light! This design is a clear reference to the “bag light” that Alfred Dunhill created and patented in the early 1900s. In an attempt to assist his wife to find her lipstick during the ballet, he created a device whereby when the bag was opened a light would automatically come on. (Wow...just like my refrigerator!) The pen is made from a patent pending gunmetal grey PVD-coated carbon fiber. Limited to 150 pieces, each dunhill Sentryman Explorer II is numbered and presented in a black lacquered Alfred Dunhill box with a limited edition certificate. It is priced at $3,400.
