Imperiali Genève has unveiled the Emperador – the world’s most exclusive humidor, all yours if you have a cool $1 million laying around to spend.
After many hours Imperiali Genève created this Swiss-made precious gold and black lacquer cigar chest crowned by a complex tourbillon timepiece made up of 323 moving parts. It comes complete with 24 Grand Cru cigars, each aged for 48 months and wrapped in real gold leaves, be ready to have the right numbers as a nine-digit code is needed to open it.
The display inside the chest indicates the relative humidity and temperature inside the chest, the power reserve on the tourbillon, which features a ‘Clous de Paris’ guilloché dial, and the number of cigars remaining. A cleverly concealed drawer contains a matching cigar cutter, 3-nozzle table lighter and an ashtray that automatically opens whenever a cigar is close to it.
Only twelve numbered examples of the extravagant accessory will be made. Imperiali Genève says its aim is to “reinvent existing objects by transcending the bounds of reason”
