In 1966, the 2000 was designed for Lamy by Gerd A. Müller (who may be most famous for his Braun electric shaver design), and reflected a revived postwar Bauhaus school centered in Ulm, Germany.
The all-metal Lamy 2000 M Black Amber 50th Anniversary edition comes with a brushed surface and unique structure. Its characteristic colour is the result of an elaborate electroplating process whereby stainless steel and galvanic surface processing form a lasting combination. The high-quality finish has a pleasantly warm feel and, combined with the characteristic weight of the pen, creates a sensual writing experience.
A subtle “50” on each Lamy 2000 M Black Amber 50th Anniversary pen, paired with the Lamy logo, emphasises the value of the pen and signalises the special status of this strictly limited series. Each pen is consecutively numbered, with a filigree engraved number on the lid, reflecting its truly unique status. The fountain pen series will be limited to 5,000 pens whereas the ballpoint and rollerball are limited to 1,500 each.
The fountain pen has a piston operated filling system. It has a 14 ct gold nib, is platinum coated and hand polished. The Lamy 2000 M Black Amber 50th Anniversary Fountain pen is available as a stylish design piece in a sophisticated gift box, complete with traditional ink bottle.
Lamy is an independent family-owned enterprise which was established in 1930 by , former Parker employee, C. Josef Lamy in Heidelberg. The Lamy brand has existed since 1952 and proved its innovative prowess in the very first year with the completely novel Lamy 27 fountain pen series. And in 1966 the distinctive style of Lamy Design was born with the Lamy 2000.
