The Turing-Welchman Pen

A limited edition of 211 pens to celebrate the achievement of Alan Turing and Gordon Welchman who created the Turing-Welchman Bombe machine used to break Enigma-enciphered messages during the Second World War.

The top of the pen is made in sterling silver to resemble the Bombe’s drum with the 26 letters of the alphabet etched into the surface. It rotates like the actual Bombe drum.

On the wide sterling silver cap band is the word “Victory”, the name of the first Bombe, and the UK hallmarks as a stamp of its quality.

Engraved on the barrel are the words “The Turing- Welchman Pen” to keep alive the memory of these most ingenious men whose secret activities during the Second World War helped save Europe from Nazi tyranny, and also triggered the start of the computer era.

And there is a secret compartment to hide your secret message – unscrew the barrel end, and there is a compartment to hold a small scroll of paper – your message to yourself, or to your loved one.
