Every single Dupont lighter requires six hundred operations, 300 tests, 70 pieces and over 100 hours of work. Manufacturing process lasts for around 4 to 5 months in general. Every article is unique because the worker who assembles the lighter engraves his initials under the striker wheel. These initials reflect the quiet pride that goes into manufacturing the object.
The colour of the Dupont gas refill required to refuel the lighter is painted red, green, blue or yellow (or left gold) on the inside of the lighter’s dust cap.#Price £1,800.00 inc. VAT
