Here are some 2007 novelties of Cuervo y Sobrinos - La Habana 1882.
ROBUSTO chonograph (LE of 125 pieces)
The new stainless steel Robusto chronograph comes with an unusual moon-phase-indication. The innovative material, carbon fibre, enlivens the dial with its shimmering squared pattern as well as a motif curving around the sides of the case. With its profoundly masculine graphic design, the dial shows all the functions of the timekeeper. The moon-phase can be read in eighths in a counter located at 3. The chronograph features a tone-on-tone hour and day of the week counter at 6 o'clock. The 30-minute and month indicator appears at 9 o'clock, while the date display is situated at 12 o'clock and doubles function-wise as a seconds counter.
Recommended retail price: CHF 6.500.-.
The Robusto chronograph moonphase is also available as a non-limited version with the classic dials of the brand: cream, antique rose, tobacco and silver. Recommended retail price: CHF 6.200.-.
As a flagship model of the Cuervo y Sobrinos collection, the Esplendidos Monopulsante chronograph has its origins in the architectural revolution that characterised the years of the Art Deco movement.
To celebrate and pay homage to this heritage, Cuervo y Sobrinos, the Swiss watchmaking company, is launching a series of 38 pieces in 18-carat pink or white gold.
The beauty of this creation does not only lie in its design of refined, avant-garde lines, but also in the heart of this time-keeper, which contains the manufacturer‘s own calibre, CYS 2450.
Derived from a modified and perfected proprietary movement, the CYS 2450 movement powers all the functions of a single-pusher coaxial chronograph controlled by a crown – the measurement of short times with stop, start and reset options. The 21-jewel movement is decorated with circular graining and snailing on the plates and bridges, and is equipped with an Incabloc system. The screw-in caseback is fitted with a round sapphire crystal paneo, which reveals the sophisticated details of the manual-winding mechanism. The watch has a power reserve of 42 hours and is guaranteed water-resistant to 3 atmospheres.
Very much in the spirit of the time, watchmaking craftsmanship is also evidenced in the rectangular and lightly curved form of the case (37x47mm).
And the final Havanna touch: the Cuervo y Sobrnos timepiece is supplied in a case that is an actual humidor.
The limited Esplendidos Monopulsante 125th anniversary series is available in 18-carat pink gold with rosewood dial (28 pieces) and in 18-carat white gold with silver dial (10 pieces), fitted with a crocodile strap.
Available from May 2007.
Recommended retail price from CHF 20‘000.-.
Limited edition, available in white gold and pink gold
The whitegold case houses a Dubois Dépraz triple calendar and moon-phase calibre. The high-end automatic movement is visible thanks to an elliptical opening of sapphire glass that reveals the emblem of the brand, the sophisticated details of the mechanism and the oscillating weight, on which the brand logo has been engraved in gold. The model has a power reserve of 42 hours. The screwed-on back guarantees watertightness to 3 atm.
The model is available in pink gold (30 numbered pieces) black-tobacco dial with red date, brown croco or in white gold (20 numbered pieces) black-silver dial with white date, black croco.
Recommended retail price: CHF 12.800.-.
