Are you asking about the price? This has not yet been communicated. The Masterpiece Humidor Year Of The Ox (2021) contained 88 cigars and cost CHF 40,000.

"This outstanding masterpiece consists of almost a thousand parts and is the most complex and intricate work of art I have ever created," affirms Rose Saneuil.

Content and construction

The humidor contains 88 cigars, which rest majestically on the cigar tray engraved with the tiger symbol. In Chinese culture, the number 88 symbolizes luck and wealth; the number eight sounds similar to the word for wealth in Mandarin or Cantonese and is considered the luckiest number. The shape of the Chinese character for eight implies that a person will have a great, broad future, as the character starts narrow and widens towards the bottom - an ideal gift for Chinese New Year.

The unique "Year of the Tiger" masterpiece humidor was created for Davidoff by the luxury craftsman Moevus in Virieu le Grand (France). The company has rare and unique expertise in the mastery of woodworking, inlay and lacquering and is one of the prestigious labels of "Entreprises du patrimoine vivant" and "Atelier d'art de France".

About the history of Davidoff humidors

Davidoff Year Of The Tiger Masterpiece Humidor
Simply wonderful.

Just like fine wine, premium cigars need to be stored in the right environment so that they can mature and refine. It was Zino Davidoff who first invested time in researching and developing optimal ways to store the finest quality cigars. The time the cigars spend in the humidor during the maturing process requires absolute control of humidity and temperature.

With such factors in mind, he built his first, famous cigar cellar in 1936. However, as not all connoisseurs have a cigar cellar at their disposal, he developed the first humidor so that cigar lovers could store their precious possessions on a smaller scale.

Innovation in the craftsmanship and science of humidors go hand in hand with Davidoff's range of versatile humidor designs. The revolutionary Davidoff Regulator, with the first proprietary self-regulating system, eliminates the need for a controlling hygrometer to maintain a beautiful cigar that is always ready to enjoy.

    1. Really excellent. I called my bank earlier and said that I needed CHF 50,000 to buy cigars with a humidor (although I don't know how much it costs). The lady on the other end of the line just hung up the phone... Now I don't even know if she's sending me the money, or maybe she thought I was joking...

      ...who knows...
