Cuervo y Sobrinos

Robusto Day-Date Churchill Limited Edition

Founded in Havana, Cuba, in 1882, and dormant for 40 years, Cuervo y Sobrinos was officially re-launched in 2001, drawing some of its inspiration from its Cuban heritage and returning with the same luxury and refinement as ever. With this in mind, it is no wonder that each of its collections is named after cigars, assuming a double symbolism, given that, just like when enjoying a cigar, life must also be lived slowly: el tiempo lento - the slow time the brand advocates.

The Robusto, Day-Date Churchill collection, an edition limited to 200 pieces, is a tribute to Winston Churchill, a great connoisseur of Cuban cigars and loyal customer of the old Cuervo y Sobrinos boutique in Havana. Powerful and at the same time sophisticated, this model is functional and stands out for its innovative modular case. The design of the 43-mm diameter case, watertight to 10 atm, is complex and its construction is sophisticated, with two titanium side segments that fit perfectly onto the lugs and have a brushed finish. The ivory dial is decorated with craquelé marble effect, to highlight the exclusivity of the brand and its Cuban origins. The double curved sapphire crystal gives this watch a vintage fascination. Inside, the self-winding movement ETA 2834-2 has a power reserve of 38 hours.

Like all Cuervo y Sobrinos models, the Day-Date Churchill Limited Edition also combines its tropical and colonial heritage with the performance of Swiss watch making technology.
