Imperiali Genève Emperador
The crown jewel of cigar storage, the Imperiali Genève Emperador is for the aficionado for whom a love of cigar smoke is second only to air itself. A marriage of luxury and technology, every aspect of the Emperador oozes affluence and innovation. At any point, Emperador owners can enjoy the Swiss-made Tourbillon timepiece set in the center of the humidor, but to access their (presumably very pricey) cigars, they must first enter a correct code sequence on the box’s golden touch sensor buttons. The Emperador houses 24 cigars, each contained within their own sensor-equipped glass tube, a solo storage system that allows the most high-end of humidors to control the humidity and moisture each cigar is subject to with medical precision. If that’s not enough to impress even the most jaded of cigar lovers, the Emperador is also outfitted with a laser-guided cigar cutter, a built-in triple-flame table lighter to ensure the perfect burn, and an intelligent ashtray that detects a cigar upon approach and opens to accept ash, rapidly closing until it’s time for another tap.
The Imperiali Genève Emperador is the world’s most expensive humidor at $1 million.
