Following its inception in 1882, Cuervo y Sobrinos enjoyed years of continuous growth. On several occasions it moved to ever-larger premises in order to meet the growing demand for its jewellery and watches.
Each dial is adorned with a ‘frappage’ motif and features dauphine-style hands which emulate those found on the original Tradition of the 1950s. Likewise, the prominent central sweep seconds hand, with its ebullient red tip, references the hand found on the original. A combination of circular and trapezoidal indexes denote the hours.
The case back is engraved with a depiction of the brand’s former boutique on Calle San Rafael in Havana and the company’s nomenclature in cursive text. In the past, this portrayal of the boutique was used as a seal applied to the brand’s documents.
