As traditional billfold wallets become more scarce with the use of electronic currency and credit cards, well made cardholders have become a necessity and here at WCL they're one of those items we absolutely love. While the Alfred Dunhill Cadogan Engine-Turn Slip card case might not be as exclusive as pulling out a Faure Le Page or Goyard card holder, it still seems to be the perfect pairing for a Tudor Black Bay GMT; at the end of the day the Greenwich Mean Time —GMT— is the mean solar time at the Royal Observatory in London where Alfred Dunhill is from.
Alfred Dunhill himself was a British tobacconist and founder of Alfred Dunhill Ltd. a London-based luxury goods company that today happens to be owned by the Richemont Group —yes, the same group that owns Vacheron Constantin, A. Lange & Söhne and Montblanc amongst other brands. What started as a small shop selling motoring accessories quickly became a tobacco shop that today is known as the tobacco Dunhill brand —now owned by British American Tobacco— and then years later progressed into a clothing store that evolved into one of the most important luxury goods brands in the world.
The Alfred Dunhill Cadogan Engine-Turn Slip card case is nicely crafted in soft grain leather that has been painted with Dunhill's latest pattern. With a combination of navy blue, black and light blue, the case is very elegant and one that would go very well with everything. The card case holds a total of six cards —three on each side— and is also fitted with a small middle compartment where one can put folded bills or receipts.
If you like blue as much as we do and you're used to pay everything with your plastics, this card holder has your name written all over it. A very cool looking card case with unique design, gorgeous colorful pattern and that not everyone will have around next time you're picking up the check at Avra Madison Estiatorio. Also available in brown. Tudor Black Bay GMT not included.
