Smart lined detailing and gleaming chrome bring a little retro style to this Cross pencil. First conceived in 1946, the slimline silhouette of the Classic Century serves to this day as an icon of mid-century modern design. Its unique bi-directional rotation system propels and retracts the lead with a simple twist.

Cross Pens are regarded as America’s oldest manufacturer of writing instruments (since 1846) and the pioneer of the mechanical pencil. They are coveted for their aerodynamic lines and signature gleaming chrome finish, inspired by Art Deco and Manhattan architecture. Their medalist finish combines chrome with gold accents, typifying their sharp, business-like feel. Many of the Cross designs have remained unchanged for decades, such as the Classic Century and Townsend (the pen of US presidents).
