S.T. Dupont is a Parisian company renowned for super luxurious collections of prized leather handbags and accessories, collectible pens, perfumes and opulent lighters with other smoking equipment with their trademark diamond-head pattern. This year S.T. Dupont celebrates 145 years of elite craftsmanship of exceptionally designed products that have clearly stood the test of time. The high-end French brand is famous for its clientele that has the who’s who of business and fashion, including international celebrities and royalty.
In 1872 Simon Tissot-Dupont began creating iconic high-fashion leather travel trunks for members of high societies. During the 20th century, the brand ventured in manufacturing exquisitely designed lighters, humidors, and related cigar-smoking accessories, establishing a workforce of highly-skilled wood crafters, engravers, goldsmiths, and other artisans in the process. To mark this momentous milestone, the S.T Dupont has turned to its roots for inspiration and the limited edition 145th Anniversary Travel Case Humidor was born.
The travel case humidor stands three-and-a-half-feet-tall finished with eight coats of hand-polished black lacquer and accented with a bold Atelier Sunburst tobacco-hued crocodile leather on both the front and top panels. The striking case also features a gold trim throughout to further add to its magnificence. The front panel unlocks and opens to reveal nine cedar trays, five of which come stocked with 72 Davidoff Oro Blanco cigars! The most expensive cigar is priced $500 each – one of the hardest to get your hands on from the Davidoff cigar line.
The treasures in the chest don’t end. To cut and light these recherché smokes, one of the drawers holds a gold Le Grande S.T. Dupont Haute Création duo-flame lighter that is sculpted with a crocodile skin pattern in bronze and trimmed with yellow gold and diamond accents. To amp the masculine sparkle, the lighter is accompanied by a matching Haute Création twin-bladed cutter. As the brand caters to royalty, one must only do things in the most proper manner – one must not smoke the Oro Blanco cigar without the proper ashtray; thus a hand-painted, bronze ashtray is also included. Along with the ashtray, a smaller Atelier Sunburst humidor is added for the convenience of travel. S.T Dupont has truly taken care of every little need that you might have to make your experience as smooth as the cigars in its elegant trunk.
The limited edition Anniversary Travel Case Humidor is priced at $145,000 each and only 72 of the of them will be made and orders can be placed through davidoffgeneva.com only. The collection is an homage to the year the revered marque first traveled into the world of luxury. Talk about coveted – every element in, on about this trunk is a collectible in itself.
