Sterling work: The Babbage precision engineered rollerball pen
UK. British luxury pen manufacturer Conway Stewart has launched a new pen designed in honour of Charles Babbage who is known as the "Father of Computing” for his pioneering work with computing machines.

The new Babbage rollerball pen, handcrafted from solid sterling silver, is designed as a pen without clips which is intended to be carried in a briefcase, organiser or handbag, and sized to fit the pen loops built into these items.

The Babbage edition celebrates the life and work of Charles Babbage. With a simple cylindrical cap and barrel, the pen pays homage to his pioneering work in precision engineering.

Both the cap and barrel are covered in an intricate pattern of engine-turned engraving in a concentric circular pattern.

The Babbage retails at £450.00 from selected stockists.

Born in 1791, Charles Babbage loved practical science, and was among the first to apply higher mathematics to commercial and industrial problems. He conducted pioneering work in the field of precision engineering and had a huge influence on the British machine tool industry. The structure of the modern computer developed from his work.
