Hector Saxe Côme – Backgammon chevron leather medium Orange

Last updated on May 21, 2024

Hector Saxe has been producing up-market games in their Paris workshops since 1978. They specialise in producing luxury quality backgammon sets. The materials used include Italian calf leather, hides, precious wood and Alcantara. In this post, we will be taking a look at our first Hector Saxe Backgammon set. The Hector Saxe Côme backgammon set is from the Hector Saxe Chevron leather range. The first thing that grabs your attention is the vivid orange colour of the chevron leather.

The cabinet is constructed from wood and overlaid with chevron patterned Italian calf leather. The leather is perfectly overlaid and it is difficult to see a single seam or stitch with the naked eye. It is quality craftsmanship. The build quality is superb and the set feels weighty and solid. The striking chevron pattern is even shown on the inlaid points of orange and black on the playing field. The furnishings are stainless steel and the hinges are perfectly recessed into the board. The set includes a lock with two spare keys. There is no handle on the set, so it isn’t practical to use this as a travel set. There is a customisation option (at additional cost) to have the board embossed with eight characters of text.

The set includes 30 acrylic checkers with a mother-of-pearl effect. Black and red in colour, the checkers are loud, but then so is the rest of the board, so they are totally suited. Likewise, the dice are acrylic and black and orange. The doubling cube is metallic and embossed on one side with the Hector Saxe logo. Finally, the set includes two leather-bound dice cups, with the same chevron pattern.

It is a medium-sized set. When closed it is 5.5cm x 37cm x 25cm. When open 2.75cm x 37cm x 50cm (Height x Width x Depth). There is no weight listed on the website, but we held it in-store and estimate it weighs in at about 2.5kg.


The Hector Saxe Côme backgammon set is striking to look at, but it also has a fabulous build quality. The materials are obviously of the finest quality and the workmanship is second to none. We can’t recall seeing any visible seams on the leather when we viewed the set in-store. Additionally, we have been over the images several times and still cannot see a seam in the leather. This is a stunning set and the perfect addition to any Deluxe Backgammon set collection. RRP £685 at the time of writing.

    I really like the vivid orange colour of the chevron leather Hector Saxe backgammon set. Is it still available to buy? I’m in the market for a new backgammon set.

      Hi James, Hector Saxe make really good quality backgammon sets. According to the Hector Saxe website, the Chevron backgammon set is no longer available in orange. However, they have a number of other backgammon sets in a vivid orange colour. Take your pick, you can’t go wrong with a Hector Saxe backgammon set. Thanks for taking the time to comment, Jason.
