Swiss heart, Cuban soul — Cuervo y Sobrinos knows classic mechanical watches and harnesses its passion for craftsmanship in this Historiador Retrograde, inspired by the cosmopolitan sensibility of Havana in the 1940s, where the brand then resided.
This is a watch I would want. The elegant 40mm steel case with its Clous de Paris dial and blued hands is a reproduction of an iconic original Cuervo y Sobrinos model from that era.
The 30-jewel automatic movement offers day of the week, alluring retrograde date, and 42 hours of power reserve. A transparent sapphire case-back enables viewing of the engraved CYS oscillating weight. The watch is finished with a double curved crystal typical of the 1950s, and is water resistant to 3 atm and finished with a Louisiana crocodile strap. Magnifico!
