Smoking Cuban Cigar with Zenith

Zenith collaborates with Cohiba, a renowned Cuban cigar company, in a limited edition series.

Cuba is enjoying its revival as a travel destination, and Zenith is in to celebrate the moment. The Swiss watchmaker collaborates with Cohiba, a Cuban cigar company that commemorates its 50th anniversary this year. The collaboration results in a limited edition series of Zenith’s legendary El Primero model. The El Primero Chronomaster 1969 Cohiba Edition is made in rose gold (50 pieces) and stainless steel (500 pieces), all featuring a Havana brown dial and emblematic Cohiba motifs. The timepiece exudes a full-bodied fragrance tinged with daring and pleasure.

“At Zenith we are proud and happy to be partnering with Cohiba, which is not only the best Habanos brand, but also represents the same relentless quest for product excellence that we have been pursuing for more than 150 years. The priority for both companies is to enhance the customer experience, thanks to the unique craftsmanship of our artisans. We are convinced that the limited series Zenith is offering will please connoisseurs of both worlds,” says Aldo Magada, President and CEO of Zenith.
