For a good all-around writer, I would get a Waterman Phileas. Smooth, classy, and understated.

Congrats, I hope you enjoy it for many years to come. Can I assume you passed everything then?
Alright-to follow up on this one.
I tried them both out locally, and ended up with the 2000 because I just liked how it felt in my hand better.
The store was running a pretty good sale on pens and inks, and I ended up with it for $128(I also picked up a bottle of Edelstein Sapphire for $13.60). So far, I'm really, really happy with how it writes and overall happy with the pen. I can see why it's considered such a classic.
I should also add that I chose the medium, which is(I think) just about right. From a quick comparison, it seems to be a shade wider than a Safari medium and about the same as a 14K Studio Fine.
