Cuervo y Sobrinos Watches
Just in time for holiday gift giving, we are offering our Cuervo y Sobrinos watches at 20% off. Plus, you make a big impression gifting their CyS watch in its Spanish cedar cigar humidor.
Historically significant, Cuervo y Sobrinos (Cuervo & nephews) watches mark an unparalleled time in history. They are today’s only Swiss-made watch with a Latin soul.
The Cuervo y Sobrinos boutique was originally established in Havana, Cuba in 1882. During Havana’s heyday of the 1930s-50s Cuervo y Sobrinos was Cuba’s Tiffany of the era. In fact, the brand was so highly respected that the boutique’s guest register boasts signatures of Ernest Hemingway, Winston Churchill, Albert Einstein, Clark Gable and many, many more.
These beautiful timepieces reflect as many intangible components as they have physical pieces: artistry, history, engineering, revolution, celebrity, and glamour. Even Cartier envied Cuervo y Sobrinos during the years when Havana served as a playground for the rich and famous.
In addition, the company’s past is historically connected to the Grand Prix and auto racing, sponsoring vintage car racing through the European countryside.

Elvis Presley is seen here wearing one of his Ventura watches in the movie, Blue Hawaii.
Noted Hamilton historian, Jarett Harkness was quoted as saying, “I’m not sure how Elvis Presley’s White Gold Ventura got onto Blue Hawaii, but I imagine it was just because Elvis was fascinated with the watch and owned one, and it looked good for the movie,”. As a matter of fact, Presley owned many Venturas and was known to give them as gifts.
In addition, the Ventura is the official timepiece of Men in Black agents all over the world. The watch appears in all four episodes of the MIB series and is as much a part of their uniform as the black suit and wraparound sunglasses. Tommy Lee Jones, Will Smith, and Tessa Thompson all wear the Hamilton Ventura.
