ABOUT CYS AND THE WATCH

Cuervo y Sobrinos is an anomaly. It is the only watchmaker with global reach today to have emerged from what was at one point colonial territory. In this respect, it went one step further than its contemporaries of the early 20th century, Gondolo e Labouriau of Brazil and Serpico y Laino of Venezuela. While those retailers sold European watches double signed with their names, only Cuervo y Sobrinos went on to establish its own watchmaking capability in Switzerland.

The watch presented here channels much-loved vintage references of the 1950s in a contemporary 40mm size. High-polished hands, numerals and indices contrast vividly with its chameleon-like salmon guilloché dial, while the watch's dramatic lugs evoke the tail fins of American automobiles of pre-revolutionary Havana.

As further evidence of the thoughtfulness of its making, the base movement of the watch is the same Peseux movement that Cuervo y Sobrinos (not to mention Girard Perregaux and other watch companies) used in the 1950s. This movement is now owned by ETA.

The watch here is less than 10 months old and comes complete with its original box (a fully functioning cigar humidor) and papers.

Included in the package are THREE complementary straps in addition to the shiny black alligator original: (a) Navy blue pebbled calf skin from A Collected Man; (b) grey suede from Veblenist; and (c) matt grey alligator leather, also from Veblenist.
