This thread is still every bit as helpful and informative as it was back when it was made in 2012-so thank you! One thing that I didn't seem to find out here- Does anyone know the origin of the name of the pen? 2000
This thread is marvellous indeed. I would guess 2000 was a popular number to address futuristic appeals. A lot of products used to receive this name, back in the time that year 2000 was still a bit far away so people could imagine flying cars would be a norm. I was born in the early 80s and I still remember the number 2000 having a futuristic appeal, there were products marketed on the TV that were called 2000, like the Ginsu knife set. But of course, there can be another reason for the Lamy 2000 name, but to me it is clear that pen was very futuristic and it still is.
