This week, we are trying something new. We are taking a break from our regularly scheduled broadcast of vintage wristwatches to bring you a special selection of rare finds. You may remember the rare finds section of the HODINKEE Shop from when we launched it back in March. Well, today my friends, we have some really cool and fresh objects for you to shop, including vintage lighters, sterling silver flasks, and unusual travel clocks. Take a closer look.
1970s S.T. Dupont Black Lacquer Lighter
S.T. Dupont is one of the most well-known lighter producers in the world. Based in Paris and founded in 1872, Dupont didn’t start making lighters until after 1914. The example we have here is black clad in black lacquer with gold tipping. It works perfectly and has the familiar clinking sound associated with these lighters.

1920s Audemars Piguet White Gold Jumping Hour Pocket Watch
Next we have this incredible Audemars Piguet jumping hour luxury fake pocket watch in white gold. Not only is this watch beautiful (and fun!), but we were also able to get our friends at Audemars Piguet to check their archives: They confirmed that this watch was made in 1924 and sold in 1927 to Metric, a New York–based retailer.
