    Brian, If I'm not wrong, C y S existed before the Cuban Revollution in the 60's. The brand returned in 2001 doing luxury watches

    The vintage C y S market has been flooded by frankens and fakes from Argentina. You may have found a way to get around all that by going to Habana!!

    C y S used normal ebauches for their movements. Any watchmaker should be able to service it. Post some pics!!

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!
