By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

New York, New York – Reported by Elite Traveler, the Private Jet Lifestyle Magaine

Cuervo y Sobrinos has once again leveraged its knowledge of classic mechanical watches and passion for craftsmanship into a superb new timepiece. The Historiador retrograde is clearly inspired by the refined cosmopolitan sensibility that was the very essence of Havana in the 40s.

Distinctive and elegant, the Historiador Retrograde case is a reproduction of an iconic original Cuervo y Sobrinos model produced from the 1940s –1950s. Classic and timeless, the watch is instantly recognizable by the unique silhouette and design of the lugs. A rich “clous de Paris” dial is paired with outstanding blue hands and perfectly embodies the meticulous approach and watch-making expertise of Cuervo y Sobrinos.

Inside the case, an automatic movement and functions: day of the week, date and power reserve. Through the transparent case-back one can admire the engraved CYS oscillating weight. Double curved crystal typical of the 50s, water resistant to 3 atm and finished with a Louisiana crocodile strap and deployant buckle.

Technical Features:
Automatic movement: CYS 240
30 jewels/42 hr power reserve
40 mm Stainless steel case/9.9 mm height
Applied CYS emblem at 12.00
“Clous de Paris” dial with blue hands

Functions: Hours, minutes, seconds, day of the week, Retrograde date and power reserve.
