Zippo slim lighter dating
In March 2011, due to significant decrease of sales from 18 million lighters a year in the mid-1990s to about 12 million lighters a year recently, combined with increasing pressure on people not to smoke, Zippo Manufacturing Co.tried offering a wider variety of products using the Zippo name, such as watches, leisure clothing and eau de cologne.Zippo lighters, which have gained popularity as “windproof” lighters, are able to stay lit in harsh weather, due to the design of the windscreen and adequate rate of fuel delivery.
These lighters are now sought after collector's items and popular souvenirs for visitors to Vietnam.
Much of the early Zippo lighter advertising are works of art painted by hand, and as technology has evolved, so has the design and finish of the Zippo lighter.
The basic mechanism of the Zippo lighter has remained unchanged, but they developed into a popular fashion accessory, with a huge variety of artistic designs produced.
The world-famous guarantee that It works or we fix it free™ still covers every Zippo windproof pocket lighter today.
