Pens from Manu Propria - an Exception to the Rule!

So I am NOT a fan of most watch makers / watch brands "diversifying" their portfolios to include sunglasses, jewelry, phones, pens…

But then again, Angular Momentum / Manu Propria is not just any watch brand!  So as with any good rule, there is always an exception!

Martin Pauli was kind enough to share these with me, so that I can share them with you ; )

Martin has been quietly working away, and his pens will be available for direct purchase some time in the coming month or two - so stay tuned!

Like everything that Martin does, the focus is firmly upon a hand made, artisanal approach.

The pens (caps and barrels) are crafted from Japanese Ebonite.  The nibs are from the German nib maker Bock.

  1. They bear a striking resemblance to some Dani Trios. Some of them have a really intriguing shape though, so I can't wait to hear more about them.
    Jim, I think you and I are on the same page design-wise. I just got a Nomos Ahoi, and it has become my new favorite watch ...for now.
