Go on, have a cigar this Christmas, James Bond-style, with this tough-looking gadget-equipped watch. Snyper’s timepiece Snyper Two can be fitted with a windproof cigar lighter that clips onto the bars on the left-hand caseband, and the lighter, 52 mm in length, has a cigar cutter in the bottom end. The watch itself looks tough enough for anything you may be getting up to during the holidays: it’s in black PVD-coated stainless steel with a rubber strap, it’s water-resistant to 100 metres, and it’s 50 mm in diameter. It’s powered by the self-winding Snyper Calibre F100 (made by Concepto), providing hours, minutes, seconds, day and date, running at 4 Hertz (28,800 vph) with a power reserve of 48 hours. The touches of red on the dial flange, seconds hand, logo on the crown and strap stitching make it even more sporty.
The price of the Snyper Two, in the black or grey versions in steel, is 5,850 Swiss francs plus tax. The price of the coloured Snyper 2 as shown here is 6,750 Swiss francs plus tax. These prices include the cigar-lighter module.
Snyper watches and the cigar lighter are now also on sale at the Davidoff boutique on rue de Rive 2, Geneva, in addition to the brand’s existing retail network.
It would be an impresssive chat-up line, lighting her cigarette with your watch. What else could you do with this sort of gadget? Light a camp fire, a quick solder repair, perhaps even an emergency torch?
