Desk and Travel

Alfred Dunhill summarised his standards for any product bearing his name:
"It must be useful. It must work dependably. It must be beautiful. It must last. It must be the best of its kind.”

These standards are embodied in Alfred Dunhill White Spot Humidors

“It must be useful”
Storing cigars safely; 100’s under lock & key.

“It must work dependably”
Storing cigars in optimum condition thanks to the specially created Humidity Control System , perfect closure (just a puff as you drop the lid) and high quality hinges.

“It must be beautiful”
– Actually, we have a problem: finding other words that mean “beautiful” every time we handle a Dunhill product. The veneers on these humidors are carefully chosen from amongst the most beautiful woods in the world. Descriptions of the different veneers follow (thanks to www.woodfinder.com)

“It must last”
– cabinet quality, durable, solid wood boxes

“It must be the best of its kind”
The “White Spot” is universally recognised as a symbol of perfection.
Alfred Dunhill White Spot Humidors

Care:

The humidors are made of natural material and should be kept out of direct sunlight and away from sources of heat, such as spotlights or radiators. Sunlight may bleach the natural colour from the veneer finish of the box and may even cause it to lift and crack. Direct heat will cause the wood, which is naturally porous, to shrink, weakening the box joints and spoiling the appearance of the veneer.

The fittings / equipment:

Humidity Control System attached by magnet to the lid
50’s – Moveable divider
100’s – 2 moveable dividers, lock and key

The Veneers:

Amboyna wood (Pterocarpus indicus)
Common Names: Narra Burl, Amboyna Burl, Solomons Padauk, Paupa New Guinea Rosewood,
Durability: Hardwood, which is termite resistant and rose-scented
Source: Found on Narra and Paduak trees in South East Asia, Northern Australasia. The wood known as Amboyna is the burl of the tree.
Description: One of the most exotic, rare and expensive burls, used mostly for high-end veneers, Varies in colour between red, orange and yellow. It handles turning well and also lends itself well to carving.

Dunhill White spot Travel Humidor

This is brilliant!” - My comment after checking it out.

Why?
The appearance – A neat cedarwood humidor, covered with black, grained calf leather from Spain. Sophisticated styling, with the distinctive White Spot – a symbol of perfection.
The humidification – Maintains the condition of previously conditioned cigars using a simple evaporative system.
The care of my cigars – Not only does the humidifier maintain the humidity for my cigars, but it is moveable; it will hold any number of cigars in place so that they won’t roll around.
The size – Inside dimensions when the humidification system is in place: 158mm x 180mm x 25mm. Up to 9 corona cigars, and just long enough for a Churchill and enough height for a Ring 54;
The weight – only 560g
The convenience – the sprung lid stays open until closed to an angle of about 30º; then it snaps shut and the magnetic closure automatically flips into place;

“Somebody had a lot of fun designing this!”
