This new design is both contemporary and graphic. A palladium Ligne 2 lighter engraved with circles that create light and movement, reflecting the unique goldsmithing know-how of S.T.Dupont. “Onde” is French for wave, and the name is so chosen for the pattern on the metal, like ripples on the surface of water.
ST Dupont brand is also engraved on the top of the cap of the lighter.An S.T.Dupont lighter is born as a piece of brass, a small piece of solid metal made of a cooper and zinc alloy. It goes through a series of processes to become the final product we know. After extrusion, brazing and machining the body of the lighter and the top are assembled to form the base of the decoration stage in order to ensure a perfectly regular appearance of the product. The work of the master goldsmith can start.
The 'ping' of each lighter is checked before packaging, and if the desired sound is not produced, the lighter will be worked on in order to improve the tone, even if this requires hours of extra work. The concern for perfection and the production process guarantee the superior quality of an S.T.Dupont product. Only Line 2 and Gatsby lighters have this particular sonority due to the composition and assembly of their different pieces.
