Basel, November 2014. Davidoff delights aficionados across the globe with an exclusive Limited Edition range of accessories to celebrate the Chinese Year of the Sheep. This new range is the perfect complement to the recently introduced Limited Edition Year of the Sheep Cigars.
An elegant porcelain ashtray designed by Chinese designer Chen Jiang, prestige lighters and unique custom-made scissors will give beautiful cigar experiences which befit this time of year. They reflect the very qualities that those born under the sign of the Sheep possess. Belonging to the element of wood, the Sheep is a craftsman, an artist, a devotee of beauty, fashioning a world of harmony and aesthetic pleasure. For in the Sheep’s eyes, happiness is other people’s happiness. The Sheep love to see their own love of life reflected in the faces of those around them as well as the objects and things which surround them. All these Limited Edition accessories celebrate the personality of this distinctive sign. Those travelling the world before returning to China for the celebrations may also find these to be the perfect Christmas gifts – to fill their time beautifully.
“The Zodiac sign of the Sheep has many common values with Davidoff. The appreciation for craftsmanship and the sense of refinement and style which brings joy to others are at the heart of everything Davidoff believes in,” says Charles Awad, Senior Vice President Marketing and Innovation of Oettinger Davidoff AG. In keeping with this belief, these exclusive accessories have been lovingly crafted using the rarest and most precious ingredient – Time”.
Year of the Sheep – Davidoff porcelain ashtray
Davidoff sought out the Chinese designer Chen Jiang to come up with a concept for a new collection of Chinese celebration and occidental luxury. Due to his unique profile and double culture between China and the USA, he is a true asset to the company. Like any craftsman in any discipline at Davidoff, it is the time which Chen Jiang has invested in his art – 18 years of experience in the fields of design research, furniture and lighting for prestigious international brands.
This oversize Davidoff porcelain ashtray is a unique gift for a harmonious home. It is made in Limoges, the heart of the French porcelain industry, and delicately decorated with a mix of 12% gold, grey and red, and twisted and tapered surfaces evoking the horns of the Sheep. Its spacious appearance will appeal to the Sheep’s generous personality, so relevant at this time of sharing.
Dimensions: 24 cm diameter, 4 cm height
Year of the Sheep – Davidoff prestige lighters
Davidoff has created its new prestige lighters with the utmost care. The base is made of one piece of brass and the tank is part of the lighter’s body, ensuring there are no leaks, and no plastic tank. The brass is cut into the exact shape of the lighter, and what’s more, the lid is split up from the body, ensuring a perfect fit and unique match. The harmony which characterises the Chinese New Year is symbolised in the way the two opposing gas streams come together to form a unique fan-shaped flame, allowing cigars to be lit evenly and efficiently. The lighters are available in palladium with a design of horizontal lines, or in a gilded finish with an accolade design. They arrive in an elegant red pouch immaculately tailored with the Year of the Sheep design.
Dimensions: 6.1 x 3.6 x 1 cm / (2 3/8 x 1 7/16 x 1/16 ")
Year of the Sheep – Davidoff Special Edition scissors
Finally, the perfect accessory for the refined and reimagined Piramide shape of the Year of the Sheep Limited Edition cigars: the Davidoff Special Edition scissors, available in a red leather pouch. Forged from stainless steel, the gold-plated clippers are decorated with a stylish laser marking inspired by the Year of the Sheep. The large blades can be used to cut cigars with a head gauge of up to 23 mm/58 RG not just with ease, but with precision. Dimensions: 14.8 cm (5 3⁄4 ")
