Partagás Split Word Cufflinks
The branding of Partagás has evolved over its 170 year history. From heralding angels holding a cartouche (1865) to a simpler, round badge which displayed the medals won by the brand to the stylised, handwritten logo of the 1930’s.

A Little History. Don Jaime Partagás Ravelo built his eponymous factory, Real Fábricas de Tabaco Partagás, at Calle Industria 60, Havana in 1845. The building is more than iconic – its wooden galleries and weathered floor boards retain the scent of a million cigars and its pastel coloured walls breath Havana’s intense humidity. In creating this collection, we’ve let 170 years of cigar history wash over us: the iconic factory, annual festivals, royal connections, rolling room lectors, signature red and gold and, last but not least, the wonderful earthy tobacco.
