Two companies specializing in refined products that are an expression of pure passion, exclusive cigars and luxury wristwatches, have jointly developed two exceptional watches that reflect the style and atmosphere of the Cohiba brand.
Frederique Constant, the manufacturer of luxury wristwatches from Geneva, has collaborated with Cohiba, the renowned name in the Cuban cigar industry, to offer a limited edition Watch + Humidor Set. With its smooth case inspired by ‘Toro’ shaped cigars, the warm, ivory colored dial, the tobacco brown Roman numerals and the hand-sewn tobacco brown Crococalf strap, these watches form a tribute to the high-profile cigar brand that achieved ‘cult’ status under discerning connoisseurs over the world.
Presented in a luxurious giftbox that doubles as a humidor, and produced in a very limited edition of 188 numbered pieces in steel and 188 pieces in rose gold plated, these watches are already smoking hot before their launch.
Available exclusively in the U.S., these limited edition Watch + Humidor sets are priced at $1,750 for the rose gold plated version and $1,650 for the steel version. Frederique Constant and Cohiba together will launch the exclusive timepieces during a dedicated event on September, 22nd, at Club Macanudo in New York City.
There are two Cohiba brands. One Cohiba is a flagship brand of The Habanos, S.A. Corporation (Habanos S.A.) , a Cuban joint venture with the share capital owned 50%-50% by Cubatabaco, a Cuban Government company and Altadis, a Spanish company owned by IMPERIAL TOBACCO GROUP PLC, a British Tobacco Company. Second Cohiba, those for which Frederique Constant make limited edition Watch + Humidor, is trademark of General Cigar Company Inc., US the largest manufacturer and marketer of premium imported cigars.
