Story

The Gatsby combines the know-how of S.T. Dupont while initiating a renewal in its design: softening of the shapes, rounding of the clip, engraved nib, and implementation of the D that has become emblematic today. This pen is reminiscent of the lighter of the same name, which in turn is reminiscent of the name of Francis Scott Fitzgerald's famous book "Gatsby the Magnificent". Fitzgerald, in his novel, describes the elite of the interwar period, brilliant and charming, living in what is called "the roaring twenties", and participating in the emergence of a new art.

Know-How

Guillochage is a goldsmithing technique that consists of engraving straight, wavy, parallel or intertwined lines symmetrically on an object using a specifically shaped tool either made of tungsten carbide or a real diamond. To date, S.T. Dupont is the only House that has mastered the ancient technique of natural lacquering. The specific formula guarantees extreme durable products that will last for generations. The use of the lacquer allows the Maison to explore an unlimited choice of colors and decorations: Sunburst, intense vivid colors, gradations, guilloche under the lacquer and delicate glitter applications.
