First Dunhill striker lighter named EDNITE appeared in 1914.
Alfred Dunhill improved the patent of Greenwood & Wise from 1919 and in 1924 the UNIQUE lighter was introduced.
The prototype was created from an old mustard can and featured a horizontal flint, allowing the user to operate it with just one hand.
This led to the launch of the landmark lighter named ‘Unique’, which was the must have accessory of the time and is still in production today.
In 1919, Alfred Dunhill engaged Willey Greenwood and Frederick Wise to design a new product to add to his successful range of automobile accessories.
