Overlooking the shores of Lake Lugano—a gorgeous glacial lake at the Swiss-Italian border—Swiss watch manufacturer Cuervo y Sobrinos creates timepieces of note in a magnificent nineteenth-century villa. Theirs is a rich, storied history of fine watchmaking. The brand may have been born in Havana, Cuba, long ago, but today they take pride in being the only Swiss fine watchmaking brand with a Latin tradition.
This Cuervo y Sobrinos Torpedo Pirata men’s automatic watch is a stunning, unique, and formidable timepiece that recalls a time when pirates and corsairs roamed the Caribbean. The model takes its name from the torpedo-style cigar and even features accents of color reminiscent of tobacco leaves.
The watch possesses a mechanical chronograph movement with automatic winding, and features the CYS Caliber 8200 (base Valjoux 7750), 25 jewels, 28,800 vph, and a 46-hour power reserve. The large modular, round-shaped case is crafted in a combination of bronze, titanium, and burnished steel.
The case diameter measures 45 mm (excluding oversized crown, pushers, and retro-styled lugs), is 14.9 mm high, and rests upon a black alligator skin strap with rubberized coating, bronze-colored stitching and a titanium prong buckle that features the CyS insignia. The see-through case back has a sapphire exhibition window that showcases mechanical workings of the movement. Water-resistant up to 50 m / 5 atm.
Beneath the antireflective sapphire crystal there lies a beautiful black dial with a bronze-colored minute chapter on its outer part. The Cuervo y Sobrinos logo in subdued grey color appears inside the small seconds indicator at the 9 o’clock position, and there is a 12-hour counter at 6 o’clock, a 30-minute counter at 12 o’clock, and date and day of the week apertures at 3 o’clock. Large leaf-shaped skeletonized polished bronze hands with luminous pointers.
Standout features: Unique, formidable case constructed of bronze, titanium, and burnished steel; oversized crown; stylized pushers; retro-styled lugs.
