This year, Davidoff Cigars celebrates 50 years of cigar making in the spirit of the man who gave the company its name – Zino Davidoff. To mark Davidoff’s 50th anniversary, the Swiss cigar maker will bring back its Diademas Finas – a cigar that was first launched in 2006 to commemorate what would have been Zino’s 100th birthday – in jars. The jars will feature four distinct art designs created by French artist Mariane Léger. Art designs which are also represented on Davidoff’s 50th anniversary “Caves du Monde” humidors and exclusive lighters.
For the design of the 50th Anniversary Edition, Davidoff turned to the skills of Mariane Léger. The French artist blends modern technology with the traditional craft of marquetry and is a pioneer in her craft. She explored the four corners of the world to learn about the traditions and techniques being applied by the craftspeople from other cultures. The result is a series of four patterns representing The Americas, The Middle East, Europe and Asia.
