S.T.Dupont’s latest Haute Creation collection celebrates the 50th anniversary of man’s first visit to the moon.

The S.T.Dupont Apollo L’Aquart collection is named after NASA’s missions to the moon, itself a reference to the Greek god of mythology. Like other Haute Creation collections, Dupont partnered with an artist, Luis Alberto Quispe Aparicio, to create the collection. Quispe Aparacio specializes in carving ruby, but also works with other high-priced material.

Over 500 hours went into creating the Apollo L’Aquart full set. Priced at €27,000 ($30,500), the S.T.Dupont Apollo L’Aquart features a custom S.T.Dupont Line 2 lighter into a base made of obsidian, gold and silver.

Also included is a piece of a lunar meteorite.

It is limited to eight pieces.

For those just interested in the lighter—which features nine diamonds—it is priced at €6,400 ($7,230) and limited to 288 pieces.

Quispe Aparacio and S.T.Dupont previously collaborated on releases including the Stones of Fortune Series.

S.T.Dupont is distributed in the U.S. by Davidoff of Geneva USA.
