When we think of a mechanical pencil, the image is a hexagonal black tube with a colored clip and a bright white eraser. It’s what we grew up with, and it’s what we know. But PENXO changes everything with a 2mm pencil that’s much more in line with our matured design sensibilities and minimalistic tastes. Each “2mm lead holder pencil” is precision milled from a single block of aircraft grade aluminum for a durable, unibody writing tool. Push your thumb or finger down near the tip to split the two halves and activate the quick lead release–kind of like a custom pair of tweezers that holds lead in the middle. This design also makes it incredibly easy to switch colors, view the lead hardness and see how much writing/drafting/designing you can do before you’re out.

As much as we love watches with dozens of complications and functions, there’s something to be said for a simple and understated design. The Nixon Patrol watch is a modern interpretation of classic designs that has everything you need and nothing you don’t. Made with a no-nonsense 42mm stainless case, a rock-solid Miyota quartz movement and a stainless 3-link bracelet, it’s as clean and slim as it is durable and attractive. Add in the bold indices on the face to complete the sleek and stylish look. This is the watch for the makers and doers.
