There are many good fountain pens for the price you mention, but if you really want a Rotring 600 I say, start saving. It won't take you long. The 600 can be had for about $200.00. I have found that one is never satisfied with settling for less. For example, I have always wanted a Rolex Submariner but could never justify the price. In the mean time I spent thousands of dollars purchasing lesser watches, Omegas, Bulova, Tag Heuer....you name it. But I still did not have the Rolex and still wanted one, so I would have been better off just going for the watch I wanted to begin with. So get to work saving up to get what you want, and when you get it, you will be happy. You can do it!
