Cuervo y Sobrinos honours its former patron, acclaimed writer and 20th century legend, Ernest Hemingway, with the release of a new watch. Hemingway spent over 20 years living in Cuba and clearly loved the country, something that resonates with Cuervo y Sobrinos.

The watch has been developed in partnership with Hemingway Limited, an organization that manages the Ernest Hemingway trademarks, initiated by Ernest’s eldest son, Jack and founded by the three sons, Jack, Patrick and Gregory, in 1988. Cuervo y Sobrinos is the first watch brand to be officially licensed by Hemingway Limited.

This set including a silver and a black dial version is limited to 30 pieces.

The story

Ernest Miller Hemingway (1899 – 1961) had a rich and varied life that will never be forgotten. Indeed, his personal story could stand comparison with one of his acclaimed fictional works. During his life, he was a journalist, an ambulanceman, a rebel, a hunter and a fisherman, however, he will forever be known for his literary works.

Hemingway lived in Cuba at ‘Finca Vigia’ for 20 years (1939 – 1960) and clearly enjoyed his time at his Caribbean retreat. Whilst resident in Cuba, the literary genius frequently visited the Cuervo y Sobrinos boutique. Now, the watch brand known for its Latin soul, has chosen to honour the American author, a former patron of the firm, with a new series of watches produced in collaboration with Hemingway Limited.

The two-piece set is presented in a travel humidor that can also be used for transporting cigars. The sets are limited to just 30 examples and include two additional black straps.


By releasing the Historiador Hemingway, Cuervo y Sobrinos honours its famous patron, a remarkable figure who will forever be remembered for his literary works, his larger-than-life character and his love of Cuba and its Latin spirit.

At the heart of the Historiador Hemingway sits the CyS 5121 calibre, an automatic Swiss movement. Based on the Sellita SW 200, the movement features an engraved oscillating weight and has a power-reserve of 38 hours.

Measuring 40mm in diameter, all versions of this new watch are housed in a stainless steel Historiador case, chosen for its vintage-inspired appearance and ergonomic elongated lugs. To the rear of the watch, the case back is engraved with a Hemingway logo, providing a respectful nod to the legendary American novelist. A colour-coordinating leather strap and CyS-branded clasp securely affix the watch to the wrist.


Each hour is denoted with bold Arabic numerals, again lined with Super-LumiNova®. A fine minute track encircles the dial area, facilitating ease of read off, while an applied CyS emblem is positioned at noon.
