French accessory maker S.T.Dupont is no stranger to high-priced items inspired by space, but its newest collection of accessories looks to space as what it could be, not just celebrating past achievements.
It’s called Space Odyssey, a 10-piece limited collection of lighters, pens and cufflinks—all based on the galaxy and those who seek to explore it.
As with many of S.T.Dupont’s releases, there’s a variety of items that are divided into tiers. The highest-end items are part of the Prestige Collection, show in the image above.
For cigar smokers, the S.T.Dupont Line 2 Space Odyssey Prestige Lighter takes the company’s iconic Line 2 soft flame lighter and adds a space-inspired modern feel to it. The most notable feature is a small transparent circle on the body that is designed to look like earth. It’s made of “glittered-sprinkled resin,” behind it is lacquer that has been sprayed to look like the Milky Way. The rest of the lighter is made from palladium and uses natural lacquer.
A similar effect is used on the Space Odyssey Prestige pens.
By themselves, the lighters and pens have MSRPs of $3,395 and $3,495, but there’s also the option to purchase the Smoking Kit or Writing Kit, which adds a base to either the lighter or pen. In the case of the lighter, the base looks like a lunar module; the pen’s base mimics a launchpad.
Both the Smoking and Writing Kits are limited to 399 numbered pieces. The Prestige Line 2 lighter and Prestige writing instruments are each limited to 999 numbered pieces.
For just under $12,000, S.T.Dupont offers theSpace Odyssey Prestige Collector Set, which includes a Prestige lighter, a Prestige pen, an ashtray, ink well and cufflinks.
