    haste moonphase cuervo y sobrinos

    Hi found this haste moonphase cheap! The dial is marked haste, then cuervo y sobrinos. at the bottom its marked habana. The back is also marked. Can anyone give me some info on this watch? Everything works good except the day does not advance with the button,

    Nice watch! MAybe the button for the day is just jammed and a service will revitalize it.

    Cuervo y Sobrinos (Cuervo & Nephews) was a famous cuban maker who used imported Swiss movements. They closed down in the Castro era and the name has been revitalized in recent years. They are a Swiss maker now. Not sure about "Haste", though - and the internet doesn't seem to come up with anything either.....

    Its a brand well known in Mexico, apparently:

    What a great find. I would definitely have it serviced. Here is a picture of a Haste chronograph I picked up several years ago. A forum member, from Mexico City, told me it was from Mexico.

    Nice moonphase.
    A quick look on the internet reveals that Haste used Valjoux calibers
    for some of their watches.
    On the Valjoux 90 moonphase cal the month is set from the pusher
    at the 10 oclock position and the day is set with the same button which is pushed in deeper,
    give it a try.

    Well, my watch guy opened this up and here is what he told me....The movement is marked buren. And it has the buren mark under the balance. The lever that advances the day has snapped. I imagine parts for this movement would be extremely hard to come by. well, it does advance with the time....sigh. Did a little research on haste. Looks like it was a brand name of H A Steel watch co, hence the name Haste. And these were assembled in a plant in mexico city. Both the day and month are in spanish. Keeps good time so he said lets leave it alone ( a wise man)! Thought cuervo y sobrinos dealt primarily with longines? Did they put their name on other brand watches as well? Thanks for all your help.
