Cuervo y Sobrinos pays tribute to its longtime and loyal customer Ernest Hemingway, celebrated writer and authentic legend of the 20th century, with the launch of a new collection of 3 watches entirely dedicated to the writer, following an acclaimed first limited edition series that was a great success.
Under the patronage of John Hemingway, grandson of the writer, the watch collection will be launched in Key West, Florida for the Hemingway Days 2023, the annual celebration salutes the Nobel Prize–winning author’s writing achievements and enjoyment of the island’s easygoing lifestyle.
Hemingway spent more than 20 years in Cuba and deeply loved the country for its Latin identity, the same identity that pervades and animates Cuervo y Sobrinos watches. The Cuervo y Sobrinos models are the first Swiss watches to be officially licensed by Hemingway Limited, an organization dedicated to this immense literary figure.
Hemingway lived in Cuba at "Finca Vigia" for 20 years (from 1939 to 1960) and deeply enjoyed his time in his Caribbean refuge. While residing in Cuba, the literary genius often visited the Cuervo y Sobrinos boutique. Now, the watch brand known for its Latin soul has chosen to honor the American writer, a longtime and loyal customer of the company, with a new series of watches produced in collaboration with Hemingway Limited.
Cuervo y Sobrinos' creative team selected vintage-inspired shades for the first model, such as soft cream and tobacco tones, colors that surely surrounded Hemingway during his Cuban sojourn.
With a diameter of 40 mm, this new timepiece feature a stainless steel Historiador case, chosen for its vintage-inspired look and its ergonomic, elongated lugs.
As for the 'Icónico' model, the back of the watch is engraved with the Hemingway logo, in homage to the legendary American novelist. A color-coordinated leather strap and a CyS-branded buckle securely fasten the watch to the wrist.
Attention to detail is certainly a characteristic dear to the Cuervo y Sobrinos brand, examples of this are certain elements such as the seconds hand of the 'Icónico' models, which ends in a Marlin fishtail shape, and the engraving placed inside the crown that features the writer's quote "In order to write about life first you must live it" in English (at 12 o'clock) and Spanish (at 6 o'clock).
The Historiador Hemingway collection boasts a license officially granted by Hemingway Limited, an organization that manages the Ernest Hemingway© brand, founded by the writer's eldest son, Jack, in 1988.
And the news does not end there.
Each watch in the Historiador Hemingway collection will be supplied with special packaging. Cuervo y Sobrinos has designed a limited series of elegant leather watch boxes, reminiscent of the shape of a book, that can be used as a watch case, but can be slipped into the bookcase just like a book.
