Every Antique Lighter Has a Unique Story to Tell
Paris, the city of lights, has witnessed countless stories, some grand, and some simple yet profound. Among these tales is the story of Ayman Adel and his treasured S.T. Dupont gas lighter.
Having moved to Paris in the late 70s, Ayman was a man of discernment and a connoisseur of fine things, albeit with a penchant for subtlety. On a cool autumn day, he stumbled upon this Yellow Solid Gold S.T. Dupont lighter in a quaint boutique nestled in the Marais district. Its elegance and understated luxury caught his eye.
Over the years, the lighter became a constant companion in Ayman’s life. It was there during business meetings, quiet moments on his balcony overlooking the Seine, and on the occasional trips back to Egypt. Each flicker of its flame brought warmth and a sense of home.
The S.T. Dupont, model 83LCR60, despite being a vintage piece, has been meticulously cared for by Ayman. It boasts minimal signs of wear, just a few micro-scratches on its surface that bear testimony to its use. The integrity of the gas mechanism remains intact, a testament to the brand’s superior craftsmanship and Ayman’s careful usage.
Today, this pre-owned gem represents more than just utility. It’s a symbol of Ayman’s journey, a blend of Parisian charm and time-honored quality, waiting to be cherished by its next owner.
