Our history

The Family opened the first atelier
and then also a boutique, situated at Havana’s prestigious
San Rafael Avenue.


Armando Rio Cuervo with the help of his family, worked diligently to
expand the Jewellery and Watchmaking business founded by
their uncle Ramón. Hence the name Cuervo y Sobrinos — Cuervo and Nephews,
bringing great success with their skill and dedication.


In addition to their own creations, Cuervo y Sobrinos distributed
and sold the most important brands in global watchmaking.
The family achieved such renown that some of the great watch
brands engraved the Cuervo y Sobrinos name on their watch dials.


Cuervo y Sobrinos decided to expand its production network
by three other outlets in strategic European nerve centers: in Pforzheim, Germany and on Rue Mezlay in Paris
