    A newbie saying hello and looking or some advice

    Hello. I've enjoyed lurking around here for a little while, looking for some information that would help me find the name of a watch I've seen.

    I've recently become a dad to a beautiful baby girl, and my wife wants to buy me a nice present (don't worry, I've already bought her something very nice).

    Anyway, two years ago we saw a lovely watch in a watch magazine in an airport in Africa but I can't remember the name of it. We both thought this would make an ideal gift.

    It had two dials for dual time zones and I remember it being Cuban. It was very striking and it has stuck in my memory as something I would love to own. We were in a rush at the time and didn't spot the manufacturer.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance.

    It might have been the Cuervo y Sobrinos: Prominente D.T.
    It has dual ETA 2671s and the MSRP is about 4150USD. It's 52 x 30.5mm. If you want to splurge, it's also available in Rose Gold.

    Thanks

    Thats the one!

    Has anyone here got one? I'd love to see some photos / hear some opinions.

    A couple of questions - I'm in the UK so I'm looking for a European dealer. I could buy from a US dealer (and its attractive with the dollar so low and only probably headed even lower). Am I right in thinking that since the watches are Swiss made I would be better off buying them from a Swiss dealer thus getting out of paying import duty (since I am already in europe)?

    Also, excuse a possibly newbie question, but what are / is ETA 2671s?

    Thanks again.

    Are you a Dad as well? Its the most amazing feeling. I will never ever forget the moment she was born and, after having some time on my wife's tummy, was handed to me and she looked up and blinked. And blinked, and blinked, and blinked...

    Just amazing. I now know what people mean when they call it a miracle. I know its biology, and that it is the most natural thing in the world, but the knowledge and feeling that my wife and I have created a life is earth shattering!

    I'm sure all the parents on here are nodding their heads and thinking "yep, thats what its like"!

    Because of the exchange rate, the U.S. is one of the best places to
    buy. A lot of Brits make shopping trips over here and save big time.
    The ETernA 2671 is a small automatic used in ladies watches and it's
    perfect for this type of watch. Two of them are used in the Glycine
    Airman 7.

    Thanks.

    I've just noticed something - all the photos I've seen show the watch without any second hands. Is this right?
