Alfred Dunhill, Ltd. is a British luxury goods brand, specialising in ready-to-wear, custom and bespoke menswear, leather goods, and accessories. The company is based in London, where it also owns and operates a leather workshop. The company is currently owned by Richemont.

The business was developed by Alfred Dunhill after he inherited his father's saddlery business on London's Euston Road. Alfred Dunhill, responding to the growing demand for automobiles, developed a line of accessories called "Dunhill's Motorities". This first collection included car horns and lamps, leather overcoats, goggles, picnic sets and timepieces. Alfred Dunhill pitched the company under the slogan “Everything But The Motor”. In the 1920s, Alfred Dunhill, the founder, retired from the business.

Developed in the mid-1950s, Dunhill produced one of the first butane gas lighters. This iconic design has remained relatively unchanged since and was regularly used by James Bond in both print and on the screen.

Sought after the world over, Dunhill lighters combine true innovation and craftsmanship with sophisticated design. The Unique and the Rollagas, launched in 1924 and in 1956 respectively, are design icons which remain practically unchanged since their debut. Available in a range of finishes, they are the definitive luxury lighters.

Vertical Lines Unique Pocket Lighter

Dunhill Pocket Lighter
$330.00
Technical Details
• Material: silver and rhodium plated brass with sidecar leather

The Unique Pocket lighter operates in a very similar way to the original Unique lighters. The major difference is that these modern lighters operate on gas. First the cap arm must be raised, which allows gas to be released from the valve, and then the flint is struck by turning the wheel. The spark generated by striking the flint ignites the gas creating the flame.

This lighter uses a double wheel mechanism. The wheel on the side of the lighter turns another that actually strikes the flint. This mechanism is gentler on the thumbs and improves the ease of producing a flame. The flame will remain lit until extinguished by replacing the cap arm over the valve.
