The S.T. Dupont Complication Lighter: Yours for $41,000

By Paul Joseph

Historical Paris-based luxury accessories company S T Dupont have created a beautiful new limited edition lighter inspired by the delicate machinery of bespoke timepieces.

Priced at a cool $41,000, the lighter is encased in a safe made up of 200 parts and comes with a choice of external finishes in full palladium or yellow gold and palladium.

Unlike other lighters, you don’t simply push a button to get a flame. Instead you have to enter a three digit secret code to open the cap and only then can you use the device.

The skeletal body of the lighter lets you see the interlinking system, while the exquisitely designed palladium finish body is adorned with 9 rubies to add to the decadence.

Each limited edition lighter is made to order and takes a minimum of 3 months to deliver. It is presented in a lacquered wooden box and is priced at $41,000.

Founded by Simon Tissot-Dupont, in Paris in 1847, S.T. Dupont manufacturer a whole range of high-end products and accessories including lighters, collectible pens, handbags and perfumes.
