Brief Brand History for
In 1882, Ramón Fernández Cuervo and his family established Cuervo y Sobrinos in Havana, Cuba. The company soon began to expand, opening new boutiques and European facilities in the early twentieth century. In the 1950s, Havana’s position as a vibrant, cultural hub in the Americas drew numerous renowned visitors to the Cuervo y Sobrinos boutique. These included Clark Gable, Ernest Hemingway, and Winston Churchill. Soon after the Cuban Revolution, the government nationalized the firm, though it continued to produce watches for the Cuban army. Cuervo y Sobrinos remained dormant for a period of three decades until its revitalization in 1997.
Product Line Overview
Although made in Switzerland, Cuervo y Sobrinos draws heavily from its company history and that of the island of Cuba. Cuervo y Sobrinos watches are aesthetically unique, incorporating both the prestige of the Swiss watchmaking tradition and elements of Latin design. Many timepieces possess bold case shapes and elaborate lugs, a feature often overlooked by watchmakers.
The Historiador Collection pays homage to the work of Havana's official historian, Dr. Eusebio Leal Spengler, who restored the Cuervo y Sobrinos boutique in Havana and several other buildings. In the spirit of uncovering and honoring a lost age, the collection assumes a classical appearance. Historiador watches are characterized by boldly shaped lugs, which are not unlike cornes-de-vache lugs. Similarly inspired by distant history, the Pirata Collection draws on the history of pirates in Cuba during the late sixteenth century to the eighteenth century. Watches within the collection feature shaped lugs influenced by pirate motifs and spherical, globe-like crowns. Inspired by the legendary British politician Sir Winston Churchill, who visited the island several times, the Churchill Collection is characterized by a unique, three part case construction and a hinged-lever crown.
Cuba is synonymous with fine cigars. Two collections, the Prominente and Espléndidos, draw upon this heritage. Prominente is a term for an exceedingly large cigar. Consequently, watches within the Prominente Collection are prominent and bold, featuring large, rectangular cases. The collection's dials are characterized by distorted Roman or Arabic numerals. The Espléndidos Collection encompasses smaller, semi-rectangular watches with simpler indexes.
Named after the Spanish word for "flight," the Vuelo Collection is distinguished by striking contemporary flair. The collection's innovative, curved lugs are affixed to the case with visible screws. The Buceador Collection hosts divers' watches which take inspiration from the cerulean waters, pastel sands, and black corals of Cuba's coast. Watches in the collection feature a crown at nine o'clock and an additional crown for an internal rotating bezel at two o'clock. The latter crown is unlocked by a pusher at four o'clock.
