Zino Davidoff The founder
Russian born. Swiss citizen. Global explorer.

The Swiss-Ukrainian entrepreneur Zino Davidoff was born on the 11th of March 1906 in Kiev, today’s capital city of the Ukraine. He spent his early childhood there, before his family emigrated to Geneva in Switzerland in 1911.

After finishing his studies and receiving his baccalaureate degree he fulfilled his dream: he left on an extensive journey through South and Central America which would have a lasting impact on his life. After returning to Geneva in 1930, he took over his father’s business and led it successfully. Twenty-five years later his name was internationally renowned and his store had a list of prestigious and impressive clients including actors, writers and politicians.

Turning the world into his playground, Zino Davidoff boundlessly embraced life, venturing cross continents and cultures in a life-affirming, never-ending quest for the best and the conviction that true luxury is experiencing beauty and the ultimate pleasure in every moment.

Fueled by curiosity, thrilled by discovery and adventure, he mined the corners of the world for the most exceptional quality and uncompromising craftsmanship, believing that only what’s authentic, true and outstanding is good enough. Ultimately, he created a visionary empire true to his ideals.

Beyond riches, he sought enrichment of the soul and the senses as an artisan of the life well-lived. Beyond borders, he expanded his mind and cultivated his expertise. Beyond mortality, he left a legendary legacy branded with his free-spirited pioneering, infused with his intuition, tenacity and passion for excellence.

He remained loyal to his demanding and innovative principles which built the brand and created the myth of Davidoff. This is not only the heritage bestowed upon us by Zino, it’s the map that guides us on our quest forward.
