Zenith’s partnership with a cigar brand has ignited the creation of luxury timepieces


Zenith has launched two limited edition timepieces to mark another year of its partnership with cigar brand, Cohiba.

Attended by CEO Julien Tornare, Zenith’s partnership with Cohiba is off to a smoking start in 2018 at the opening of the Habanos Festival in Cuba this week where the two limited editions were unveiled.

Revellers were shown a 50-piece Pilot Type 20 Extra Special Cohiba Maduro 5 Edition in 18-carat rose gold, powered by an Elite 679 Automatic movement; and the 150-piece Pilot Type 20 Chronograph Cohiba Maduro 5 Edition in bronze, powered by the El Primero 4069 Automatic calibre.


Both pieces boast a 45mm case, along with a black dial with oversized luminescent numerals.

The movements in both pieces allow for 50 hours of autonomy.

The chrono piece has a 30-minute counter at the 3 o’clock and a small seconds subdial at the 9.

The pieces carry both Zenith and Cohiba logos on the dial.

They are worn on a brown leather strap.
