All lighters have a 3 month warrarenty after purchase.

However, even though crucial parts may have been serviced/replaced, an older lighter may still leak gas over time, or miss a spark.

Just know that you are buying a vintage product, and it can happen that they may not perform as aspected from a new lighter.

Vintage 18K Solid Gold Sleeved Cartier Les Must lighter

This absolute masterpiece of a lighter is an 18-karat solid gold-sleeved Cartier Les must lighter. It is fully functional, sparks excellent, and does not leak. The lighter is in a rare complete lot, including its original box. A magnificent and rare lighter to be seen in this condition!

This lighter has been customized with a handmade solid 18-karat gold sleeving by an Italian goldsmith back in the day, roughly in the 80s judging by the style. The outer jacket is made by weaving thin gold and silver pieces around the lighter. It has almost no imperfections as can be seen, which is rare (most of these customized lighters are worn down).

This Cartier lighter has been brought to the Waarborg Holland, Europe essay office. Here the sleeve around the lighter was professionally tested and confirmed to be 18k gold. Their office has engraved a new 750 gold hallmark on the bottom. The official report of the gold content of the jacket will come with the lighter. Because there is also a lot of silver in the sleeve, they couldn’t estimate the exact weight of the gold in the sleeve.

The lighter has been professionally polished to be in the exceptional condition it is in now. All in all a beautiful lighter, ready to be a daily carry for many years to come and a must for every collector or enthusiast!
