For those of you that don't know, these lighters by S T Dupont are the Creme de la Creme or ROLLS Royce of the lighter world.
I just love them and everytime I get one,I find it so difficult to part with.
Precision made in France.
This one is Gold Plated from 1973 with a grooved cross pattern which is really quite rare.It is 6 cms high and 1 cm thick and comes in it's own original box with dated guarantee by the retailer and operating instructions.
Considering the age,the condition is outstanding,with no wear,rubbing or discolouration to plating.
As for the operation it opens and closes crisply(just showing minor soot marks inside which will clean to make it perfect).It does have initials in the cartouche,but to me this doesn't matter at all.
The lighter sparks and lights first tme and the flame fully adjusts with the roller bar under the open lid.
It is just a delight and a wonderful weight and feel.
