The S.T.Dupont Line 1
The S.T.Dupont Line 1 was created in 1936 on special order of the Maharaja of Patiala and production began in 1941: a perfect parallelepiped 47x35x14mm, practical and sophisticated, it was also synonymous with elegance thanks to its pure lines, its fine materials and its reassuring, satisfying weight.
From the body to the tank, S.T.Dupont Line 1 lighters are fashioned entirely from a block of solid brass resulting in a hard-wearing object that can withstand the test of time.
S.T.Dupont lighters are technically advanced products ensuring maximum reliability: the production of a single lighter requires no fewer than 70 components, 600 operations, and 300 quality control tests.
Production time for a lighter is 4 to 5 months. Every lighter is hand- engraved and opens with the famous “Kling” – a unique and profound sound.
