Manufacturing of an ST Dupont

As a newly minted Dupont collect [or crazy man as the other half says] I've been researching them quite a bit. Ran across a couple of YouTube videos that are quite impressive.

Re: 1970's ? S.T. Dupont

Hi folks. I've been collecting Zippos for eons and just got an S.T. Dupont Ligne 2 gold Montparnasse vertical lines. Am absolutely head over heels (ping?) for the Dupont's now and bought another one on eBay over the weekend. One which I hope is authentic, and will likely bug y'all about it next week...
