This may be a bit premature, but the Lamy 2000 50th anniversary is coming up. That date will surely be commemorated by a special edition - any guesses?

I've been wondering this, too.  I'm a bit surprised that they didn't wait until the 50th to release the stainless steel version.  I think it would have been a good commemorative model for this and on a go-forward basis.  Given that the stainless steel version just came out a few years ago, I'm kind of doubtful that there will be something other than a slightly jazzed up version of the regular Lamy 2000.

Maybe a different color?

I'd guess they'll come out with either an entirely platinum coated L2K or a polished stainless steel version (with a brushed finish clip). I'm thinking something shiny. Titanium would definitely be nice. I've heard others confirm that something will certainly be released next year to commemorate the 50th anniversary.

We'll definitely. I sort of was hoping for a special color or design collaboration like the Jonathan Ive / Mark Newson RED (which was auctioned at Sotheby's for 30,000)

My dream special edition would be made from any metal, black, brushed and have ruthenium trim. Or maybe all black but with a yellow gold nib. Is there definitely going to be a special edition for 2016?

These are just random guesses, but 1966-2016 is a pretty big birthday!!

Wood, I would love a nice maple or something dark with lots of grain.

EBONY! A black ebony Lamy 2000 would be perfect! Oak or walnut would be great, too. However, I feel like wood wouldn't suit the 2000's style

Titanium would be a nice modern high-end material/finish for 50th anniversary Lamy 2000.

Ebony would be really awesome.... actually why not blackwood, or yew, as those would go with the Taxus and blackwood ballpoints. Now there's a nice thought. Personally I would love a Lamy 2000 Taxus.

 

But I suspect it will be something else in the existing Lamy palette. My guess is either a soft aluminium or palladium finish, or... those of you who've already said it, I agree ... titanium.

Following the Bauhaus inspiration, I am hoping (well, not really) for a L2K at a lower price point, not higher. Just for next year, many colors and the return of the steel nib!

Aww, the pen is really well priced. Especially in comparison with Pelikan!
I would vote for grey Makrolon

Oooh never thought about the 50th anniversary. I can't imagine what they would do with it but I'd wager a guess that it would look amazing.
