Introducing the James Bond Solid Gold Zippo Lighter, the ultimate precious collectible for any Bond fan. Handcrafted to order in solid 18k gold, this engraved and individually numbered windproof lighter has been created exclusively for us by Zippo in a series of just 007 pieces. We celebrate the enduring appeal of pure gold with Goldfinger's iconic quote “This is gold, Mr. Bond” elegantly engraved onto the lighter face.
Backstory. This is Zippo's first licensed pure gold lighter and is made to celebrate the partnership with James Bond.
Details. Zippo’s classic windproof lighter is elevated to supreme luxury status, with a case crafted from solid 18k gold and a gold-flashed lighter insert. Each 18k gold lighter is meticulously made by hand in Zippo's Pennsylvania workshop, where expert craftsmen use their metalworking skill to harness the beauty of gold - a notoriously soft precious metal.
The lighter receives white glove treatment at each stage of production. Its face is engraved with the Goldfinger quote, while the reverse is engraved with the 007 logo and its unique number, before being hand buffed to a glorious reflective sheen. It is then hallmarked in England and placed in it's velvet-lined walnut wood display case which can be used as a display unit with a pull out stand. The lighter includes a certificate of authenticity.
About the maker. One of the most recognised brands in the world, Zippo was founded in 1932 in Bradford, Pennsylvania, USA where it has manufactured over 600 million windproof lighters to date. The product retains its classic design and functionality and is backed by the company’s famous lifetime guarantee – “It works or we fix it free.™”
