the-write-time-by-anura-rafaelThe Anura Rafael Write Time is a unique convertible object that brings the arts of fine writing and watchmaking together within a modern, striking design. Signature elegance and refined craftsmanship contribute to creating a bespoke style offered on an individual commission basis only.

The Anura Rafael Write Time is a sublime object like no other, modern yet imbued with a sense of nostalgia for a bygone era of elegance. It hearkens back to a time when horology was not limited to just traditional wristwatches but also exquisite expressions of unbridled creativity and skill in the form of objets de vertu. This unprecedented design features a patented system which makes it possible to convert a time capsule housing a tourbillon into a writing instrument or a wristwatch.

Fixed to a pen, it brings together the arts of fine writing and watchmaking within a truly unique object. The intricately designed pen is made of 18k gold encased in alligator leather. The gold nib is available in different sizes to suit the specifications of the client and enhance writing comfort. It comes with either a piston filler or a cartridge. A proprietary clip and orientation system ensure all parts are perfectly aligned enhancing its elegant ergonomic curves.

Worn on the wrist, it transforms into a watch unlike any other. This piece of cutting edge design is powered by a transversal movement, encapsulated within a sapphire cone modeled with pure, natural lines. Fit into an openwork receptacle to be worn snuggly around the wrist, it allows quick, easy lateral reading of the time on three discs. On the side, the base of the cone provides an unimpeded view of the captivating ballet of the Tourbillon.
