S.T. Dupont has continued to innovate and upgrade with its new, incomparably high-performing lighter, the brushed chrome Défi Extrême. Its assertive, dynamic and decidedly masculine design symbolises high performance, and its innovative and unique construction combines a body with high-precision injected metal and a semi rigid jacket for increased protection. Its intuitive ergonomics and its tactile features with the diamond head pattern make Défi Extrême the everyday “object d’art”, under all circumstances. Its powerful and stable blue torch flame resists the most violent winds. Défi Extrême is effective from the coldest temperatures (-10°C) to the hottest (+45°C) and works at a height of more than 3500 m, where other lighters fail to operate.
S.T. Dupont lighters are crafted by our artisans with the utmost care.
We recommend following these care tips to maintain their shine and performance over time:
• Clean all surfaces with a soft cloth. Do not use solvent-based products.
• For silver-coated surfaces, use a silver polishing cloth, which can be found in specialist shops. Silver is a precious material that may show signs of oxidation over time. This natural process can be heightened if your lighter stays in prolonged contact with leather or rubber.
Clean lacquered surfaces as you would eyeglass lenses; fog them up, and wipe with a soft cloth. Lacquer is almost completely acid-proof. Exceptionally sturdy, it is particularly resistant to shocks, scratches, friction and water.
