Can somebody ID this rOtring mechanical pencil? Found it when I was going through some old stuff. Don't remember where or when I got it.

 

Markings are : "rOtring", "Germany" and "0.7".

When you click it lightly, the pencil lead advances.

When you click it harder, the lead sleeve retracts/extends.

 

Does anybody know how it was(is) called? And from when to when it was made? Can't seem to find it on the timelinethingy on the rOtring website.

The lead sleeve retracts:

http://mechpencils.b...ng-initial.html for starters. Recent production, most likely, as they're available on Amazon.com.

Thanks for that link. That seems to be it.

 

Not sure about "recent production" as it's not on rOtring's website. On the other hand, they do seem to be available on Amazon.

 

Mine was in a box that hadn't been opened since I moved in my apartment, 10 years ago.

 

Kind regards,

 

Jos

Some products have *long* production runs. Lamy's been making the 2000 for fifty years. :-)

True that.

 

It's surprisingly comfortable to hold & use... I don't know why I left it in a box for more that 10 years... ;)

 

Kind regards,
