The first mechanical pencil ever, the Caran d'Ache FixPencil is a 2mm lead holder with a simple metal body, clutch mechanism and a sharpener in the cap. Legend has it that this pencil was invented in 1929 with the intention of being a replacement for wood-cased pencils should the impending war limit supplies. 

This one is a limited edition designed by renowned architect Mario Botta and comes in an angular display box.
