The iconic S.T. Dupont name is known for quality, well-made cigarette lighters and other luxury implements. The company’s origin can be traced to Simon Tissot-Dupont opening his workshop shop in Paris in 1872 after his previous one burned down. The production of lighters started in 1941 with their first petrol lighter. Over time, S.T. Dupont became famous for manufacturing the world’s most complicated and sophisticated luxury lighters. Even to this day, the iconic name carries its legacy.
The S.T. Dupont BREV-SGDG was the very first lighter produced by S.T. Dupont in the 1940s. They are made from a light metal (most likely aluminium) for the lack of precious metals during the war. This lighter is 50 mm tall, but there was also a slightly longer version produced.
