Thread: ST Dupont Real or fake ?

  1. Default ST Dupont Real or fake ?

    I have acquired a Rendez-Vous Moon ST Dupont Lighter. The only problem is the lighter is goldplated and I have only seen this lighter made in silver. Does anyone know if this lighter is made with a goldplated finish ?

    It is with regret I have to say your lighter is a fake. Could tell by just a glance. 1st and foremost, the moon version (yours) of the Rendez-Vouz was silver and blue. The sun was red and gold. Sorry.................
    Any chance to get $ back?

    Direct from ST Dupont: (description)

    Rendez-Vouz, a meeting…a magical, thrilling word, full of promises. The sun has a rendez-vous with the moon, but the moon is not an early riser and the sun always sets too early…this reunion is impossible, yet so tempting…
    S.T. Dupont, pursuing its tribute to the force and mysteries of nature, has chosen to bring these two rulers of the skies together in a new limited series celebrating a perfect, caring reunion.

    The sun and moon each have their own metal with their own color: gold with red Chinese lacquer for the incandescent sun; silver with blue Chinese lacquer for the moon.

    This limited edition consists of:
    Two pocket lighters: 2,500 of each,
    Two fountain pens and two ballpoint pens: 2,000 of each,
    500 table lighters,
    1,500 key holders

    Looks like at least a couple of nice boxes of cigars to me.
