Lightime Possession
Cartier’s new lighters have a simple, stark beauty. They are designer creations combining style with practicality, each consisting of a simple oval inspired by Cartier’s legendary lighter of 1968. The invisible hinge retains the purity and precision of the oval form, while the curved lines make the lighter easy and comfortable to use. This is not just a functional object, but a treasured lifetime possession. All five models of this minimalist jewel are of the same shape, but with subtle variations in materials and colours: a gold or platinum finish with a vertical gadroon pattern, a steel finish, or black with gold or platinum-finish decoration.

Available at the Cartier Boutique, The Oberoi, Mumbai, (Tel: 022 2325757) and Ravissant store in New Friends Colony, New Delhi.
