Swarovski Cigarette Holders – For the Smoker ?


A very small quantity of items with the smoker in mind were produced by Swarovski (although will probably not be used by a collector) included the Ashtray, Cigarette Lighter & Cigarette Holder. We will be discussing each in separate blog posts over the next few weeks.

Let’s talk about the Cigarette Holders first.

The most common Cigarette Holder is 100% crystal with no metal accents.

The other far more unique & hard to find Cigarette Holders were produced from 1977 to 1983 with a variety of metal accents – Rhodium Polished, Brushed Rhodium, & Polished Gold.  These sold for Thousands of Dollars at one time to Collectors in the Secondary Market, after they were retired, before the After Market collapse.

The Swarovski Clocks


  • Providence_Table_ClockSwarovski Providence Clock

    The Swarovski Providence Clock was designed by Steven Weinberg.  This table clock stands about 7” tall.  Swarovski  produced this clock from 1998 through 2003.  During the 5 year production run, the Providence Clock retailed for $850.  It was the most expensive clock produced.

    Some of the clock units had edition numbers laser etched in the crystal on the back side.  There are clock numbers on the back side on the reverse side. (3, 6, 9, and 12′ clock only, with dots representing other numeric positions).

    Now, nearly 10 years after retirement, the Swarovski Providence Clock generally sells in the $175 to $300 price range.

    Swarovski sold a number of Clocks in the “Crystal Time Pieces” category, nearly 20 clocks were available over the years, all are now retired.

    Athena Clock  – Issue Date: 1987 / Retired 1992, retailed for $330.

    Belle Epoque Clock – Issue Date: 1987 / Retired 1992, retailed for $585

    Each of these clocks were available in gold and rhodium metal finishes with 3 different faces: Alarm, Date & Moon dial faces.

  • The ‘date face’ had the numbers 1-31 instead of the number 3 to show the day of the month.
  • The ‘alarm face’ had roman numerals.
  • The ‘moon dial face’ had roman numerals and dials indicating the phase of the moon.

All the clocks have ‘Swarovski’ written on the face.

5 years later, in the Selection product category, Swarovski issued more clocks featuring Seiko clockworks.

  • Carriage Enigma Clock – Available 1992 to 1998 in a Limited Edition of 6,450, Designed by Ludwig Redl, and retailed for $355.
  • Helios Table Clock – Available 1992 to 2005 manufactured entirely with Roman numerals, Designed by Borek Sipek, and retailed for $355. Of special note is the fact that this clock does not have the roman numeral ‘4’ on it.

  • Allegra Pendulum Clock – Numbered edition, Designed by Steven Weinberg, Available 1999 to 2005, and retailed for $590.
