Cigar News: S.T. Dupont Guilloche Collection Line 2 Lighters Announced

No comments

S.T. Dupont is renowned worldwide for crafting exceptional lighters of superior quality and design. The new Guilloche Collection is no exception and demonstrates one of S.T. Dupont’s oldest and most treasured crafting techniques ‘guilloche under lacquer’.

Guilloche Technique

S.T. Dupont’s iconic ‘Firehead’ guilloche pays tribute to the much celebrated ‘Louvre’ museum in Paris, France, famed for its glass ‘pyramid’ entrance, which serves as the design inspiration.

S.T. Dupont engineers engrave a series of ‘pyramids’ throughout the body and lid of each lighter using an ‘engine turning’ process that engraves very precise and intricate geometric patterns into an underlying material.

Engraving

The top of the lighter is adorned with the S.T. Dupont logo and the ignition roller is engraved with 24 grooved lines to enhance grip when igniting your iconic Line 2 soft-flame lighter.

Natural Lacquer

S.T. Dupont’s artisans then add layers of natural lacquer to the engraved lighter in a month’s long process involving many applications and polishing to impart depth and mystery to each finish. The engraved guilloche reflects light through the overlay of natural lacquer, creating a spectacular three dimensional display of color. The result is a collection of precious, hand lacquered lighters of exceptional beauty.

The Guilloche Lighter Collection is offered in 4 vibrant colored lacquers:

Red accented in gold vermeil trim
Orange accented in palladium trim
Turquoise accented in palladium trim
Electric Blue accented in palladium trim

The MSRP is $1,295
