The Anura Rafael Write Time combines traditional watchmaking and pen craftsmanship in a convertible object that will weaken the knees of all Luddites. Forget computers, e-mail and digital clocks – this 18K gold and alligator skin pen allows you to write while keeping track of time, thanks to a manual-wind mechanical movement with a tourbillon encapsulated at the top of the barrel. If writing by hand is too plebeian for you, the timekeeping capsule can be detached and locked into a leather wristlet to create a striking timepiece. Each set is made to order, allowing you to customise everything from the movement to the nib. If only they’d invented this when we still wore uniforms.
The product of traditional watchmaking combined with pen craftsmanship is the sole object of our heart’s desire.
