Wrist Lighter (Oct, 1947)

Wrist Lighter is the latest novelty for the smoker. Strapped on the wrist, and outwardly resembling a watch, it lights when the cover is flicked back, as demonstrated above. It is being marketed by Samuel Jones, Ltd., London.

    Thank goodness this was gone before the dawn of the Polyester Age and the leisure suit. Think of all the spontaneous Disco fires that were prevented!

    Bond! It’s not a toy! Don’t use it to light your cigerette!


    Is it also a watch?

    I wish I had one of these but, I might be a bit worried if I was out in the sun for any amount of time with a flammable device strapped to my wrist.

    Check out the Harrison Ford film, Frantic, to see a wrist lighter used in a Paris hotel scene..

    MARIO G MATEO: Don’t use all caps. It’s the same as shouting and is considered rude.
