From the moment the S.T. Dupont House was founded in 1872, Simon Tissot-Dupont magnified the finest and rarest of materials by producing luxurious accessories adorned with gold, diamonds, mother-of-pearl, Chinese lacquer or alligator. In 1973, S.T.Dupont started a revolution by launching the first luxury ball point pen: a functional, technical object, but also an intimately personal one. In 1996 it introduced the Olympio for the pleasure of writing. Each of S.T.Dupont’s writing instruments is characterised by the elegance of its lines, the superiority of its materials and its perfect and reassuring weight.
