Swiss watch­maker Anura Rafael’s Write Time is half-watch, half-pen, and the sole ob­ject of our heart’s de­sire

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.
