S.T. Dupont launches SPECTRE collection
On October 13th S.T. Dupont launched their 2015/2016 collections which for the Bond fans includes a special SPECTRE collection of lighters, pens and a cigar cutter.
Some very exclusive Marvel and Star Wars items were also announced (watch the videos at the end of this article).
In a luxurious residence at Kensington Palace Gardens (also known as Billionaires Row or 'the most exclusive address in the world') the legendary ‘cling’ lighters and impeccably refined writing instruments for which S.T. Dupont is so famous were beautifully displayed.

S.T.Dupont is celebrating the return to the big screen of James Bond with a new collection that embodies elegance, refinement and cutting-edge technical innovation.
This new SPECTRE Limited Edition draws its inspiration from the famous gun barrel, one of the most iconic images from the 007 films.

THE PREMIUM COLLECTION FROM S.T.DUPONT
S.T.Dupont has created a spectacular lighter, featuring the iconic gun barrel. The SPECTRE lighter is the only lighter in the world with this unique design.
The SPECTRE Premium lighter, with its design based on the famous Ligne 2 model, is a monolithic metal with a delicate guilloché surface and a finish between matt and polished - wavering between light and shadow.
This exquisite work of art demonstrates an exclusive technical prowess that makes it unique: a cylindrical tunnel with a polished inner wall runs through the middle of the lighter. The SPECTRE lighter is available with a choice of two finishes: black with a satin guilloché and palladium.

The SPECTRE Premium writing instrument, with its design based on the Ligne D model, rolls perfectly between the fingers. Its infinitely precise guilloché metal body and cap gives it an almost velvety feel. The SPECTRE Premium writing instruments are available in two finishes, black and palladium in three versions: fountain, rollerball or ballpoint.

The SPECTRE Premium lighters and writing instruments boast a compartment which provides a place to insert personal messages. Each piece of the collection is engraved with the 007 and SPECTRE logos and presented in a luxurious black lacquered gift box.
In reference to the first SPECTRE appearance in a Bond movie, the collection is limited to a number of 1963 per item, identified by a numbered metallic plate.

The SPECTRE Premium Collector gift box makes for a truly exceptional gift. The polished black lacquered case has a majestic style and features a combination lock of the highest quality. It holds the fountain pen and ballpoint pen from the Spectre Collection, along with a small adaptable roller nib, as well as the guilloché lighter with its bullet holed cored.
