By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

New York, NY – Reported by Elite Traveler, the Private Jet Lifestyle Magazine

Frédérique Constant and Cohiba debuted their limited edition watch collection to leading members of the press, VIPs and cigar aficionados on Wednesday night, September 24th, at Club Macanudo in NYC.

More than 150 people savored Cohiba cigars while admiring the handcrafted Swiss wristwatches that will be available solely throughout authorized Frédérique Constant retailers in the United States and its territories.

On display at the event were the steel wristwatch (limited to 188 pieces) that will sell for a suggested retail price of $1,650 and the rose gold-plated watch (limited to 188 pieces) which will carry an SRP of $1,750. The watches are housed in an elegant humidor which also contains 25 Cohiba Crystal cigars, handmade in the Dominican Republic.

Ralph Simons, US President for Frédérique Constant said, “the partnership was born out of true affinity between Cohiba and Frédérique Constant — there are so many similarities between cigar and watchmaking, not the least of which is the level of skill required to handcraft both products.”

Blair Smith, senior brand manager of Cohiba agreed, ” We are delighted to be able to celebrate the heritage of the Cohiba brand with such bespoke timepieces and we look forward to future collaboration with Frédérique Constant.”
