December 16, 2013 (Basel, Switzerland)–Davidoff celebrates the Chinese New Year of the Horse with a special collection of accessories for 2014, which perfectly complements its Limited Edition Year of the Horse Gran Toro cigar release.
A symbol of energy, the horse is extremely animated and active. Extroverted and with a deft sense of humor, people born in the Year of the Horse love to take center stage and delight audiences at every occasion. Masters of ceremonies, you always see them. It therefore comes as no surprise that Zino Davidoff was himself born in the Year of the Horse.
To celebrate the horse, Davidoff presents a new collection of accessories composed of a lighter, a round cutter, two cigar cases, three ashtrays and a humidor. These cigar accessories are crafted in a shiny black and fiery finish.
Year Of The Horse – Prestige Lighter
The exclusive lighter in an octagonal design comes in a gilded, moiré pattern. It shows an elegant and energetic horse beautifully engraved on the side of the lighter. It is equipped with a special burner, designed for perfect results when lighting cigars. This burner features two opposing gas streams‚ which produce a flame in the shape of a fan. This ensures that from the very first draw‚ you enjoy a harmonious‚ satisfying experience.
Year Of The Horse – Round Cutter
The round cutter with 3 different blades allows you to cut cigars from 34 RG up to 60 RG. It is made of stainless steel, with blades from Solingen, the famous “city of blades” in Germany. Achieving Davidoff’s highest standard of quality, this round cutter will give complete satisfaction: precise cut, premium stainless steel material and stylish finishes. Very practical with its three different sizes of stainless steel blades, the Davidoff round cutter will enable aficionados to make a very precise round cut on any kind of cigar he wishes to enjoy. It will allow the rich flavors of the Davidoff Limited Edition Year of the Horse cigar to be evenly and smoothly liberated.
Year Of The Horse – Cigar Cases
These finely crafted leather cases are made of vegetable tanned full-grain leather from Europe. The leather tanning process is natural and the coloring and sealing of the case are hand crafted. The particular aesthetic finish is kept secret. Davidoff only unveils that the craftsmen work with forms and fire to create these beautiful cigar cases. The characteristics of this special leather such as veins, scars or different tones exemplify its purity and authenticity. The cases are crafted in 2 colors : shiny fiery red or brilliant blacks. They are designed to hold 2 XL cigars.
Year Of The Horse – Ashtrays
These Year of the Horse Ashtrays are made in the renowned city of Limoges from the finest porcelain, a porcelain which was first described as «White Gold» in the Imperial Period and was produced with a special combination of kaolin, quartz and feldspar. The density of this exclusive material proves to be a perfect surface to apply painted designs. The unique design has been created to celebrate the energetic Horse, and will be the perfect centerpiece to host the savoring of a Davidoff Limited Edition 2014 Gran Toro Cigar. These Limited Edition ashtrays come in 3 different designs: 2 large models and a smaller one.
Year Of The Horse – Humidor
The Davidoff Limited Edition Year of the Horse humidor has been designed with a slim lid, inspired by the legendary, classical cigar boxes. To guarantee the air-tight seal of the humidor and meet Davidoff’s high quality standards, small metal pieces are embedded in the lid and ensure that it remains airtight throughout the years. This Year of the Horse humidor meets the Davidoff high standards for quality. Equipped with two exclusive Davidoff self-regulating humidification systems, optimal conditions of 70-75% relative humidity are guaranteed. This is the perfect unit for storing your Davidoff Limited Edition Year of the Horse cigars.
