The Rotring 600 mechanical pencil, in black and with a 0.5mm mechanism, is currently on sale at Amazon for $12.88.
It doesn’t look to be a one-day deal, but supplies are likely limited. There’s no mention of when the deal will end.
If you want some background on this mechanical pencil, our deal post from last December has some more discussion.
I bought one more than a year ago, at $18. It’s priced at ~$24 and up elsewhere.

I can’t tell you why it’s on sale, how long the sale will last, or whether there are limited supplies, but what I can tell you is that this is a great mechanical pencil and that $12.88 is a fantastic price.
The Rotring 800 also appears to be deal-priced at $24.63. The 800 has a retractable tip.
If you want to spend just a little less, I can also recommend Staedtler’s mechanical pencils. The blue series and silver series are both under $10 each, better than what I paid 3 years ago.
