Cigar News: Davidoff Announces Masterpiece Series II Humidors and Cigars

No comments

Basel/Switzerland, October 2020 – After the successful release of the Masterpiece Humidor Series I, Davidoff Cigars is delighted to present the second series of twelve Masterpiece Humidors, designed by the renowned French marquetry artist, Rose Saneuil.

True to the brands philosophy to fill time beautifully, Rose Saneuil was commissioned to design a series of two Masterpiece Humidors inspired by the notion of different aspects of time and the artistic interpretation thereof. The first Masterpiece Humidor series was launched in September 2020 while the Masterpiece Humidors Series II, limited to twelve pieces, will be launched in November 2020.
“Collaborating with artisans and artists mastering unique skills is not only a cornerstone in our innovation strategy but always a possibility for us at Davidoff to learn, get inspired and expand our creative horizons,” says Edward Simon, Chief Marketing Officer of Oettinger Davidoff AG.

In her approach, Rose Saneuil artistically intertwined three dimensions of time: Time as the ultimate luxury, a moment of serenity and reflection which is reflected in a sunset. The limitation of time and its easy evaporation which is inspired by the image of evaporating smoke. For the third dimension, when time seems to stand still, Davidoff has provided exceptional vintage tobacco leaves harvested in 1994 which inspired the artist of the perfect moment. These tobacco leaves reflecting the moment of eternity are part of the iconic artwork, now conserved with the humidor for eternity. “Working with Rose, observing her creative approach and ability to translate into materials and techniques with a level of detail and dedication second to none, was a true privilege. These two Masterpiece Humidors along the exclusive cigars surely are valuable collectors’ items,” Edward Simon continues.

The Davidoff Masterpiece Humidor Series II 2020
Presented in November, the Masterpiece Humidor Series II is designed with a shimmering effect, while the combination of darker colors of tobacco with vibrant golden hues reflects warmth. The materials chosen by Rose Saneuil incorporate gold leaves, tobacco leaves, mother-of-pearl, parchment and woods from vavona burl and sycamore trees. The body of the Masterpiece Humidor is from precious Macassar woods all treated to reflect a richer and more vibrant appearance.

The Masterpiece Humidor Series II is accompanied by 50 unique Davidoff cigars. Exclusively blended by Davidoff’s Master Blender for these limited Masterpiece Humidor series.

The Masterpiece Humidors – A cocoon for your cigars
The interior of the humidors is made of Gabon wood, known as okoumé, from central West Africa. It is odorless and tasteless thus avoiding flavor transfer to cigars. The okoumé is hand varnished to seal the humidity more effectively so that it will not be constantly absorbed by the wood. Each humidor is equipped with three proprietary Davidoff De Luxe regulators which guarantee the stable humidification between 70% and 72%.

Capacity: 190 – 250 cigars
Features: 3 Davidoff de Luxe regulator, 1 removable tray
Dimensions: 550 x 356 x 180 mm – Geant humidor
