Cuervo y Sobrinos Pirata Chronograph

$8,150

Description

Reaching back to the historical past of its place of origin, Cuervo y Sobrinos creates the swashbuckling Pirata collection. Secret beaches, buried treasures: Caribbean islands like Cuba were once favorite hunting grounds for infamous pirates. Mirroring this spirit of daring and adventure, CyS pays tribute with the Pirata. Watches with a strong identity. Inspired by the adventurous and romantic spirit of history’s buccaneers. Therefore, within the bezel is engraved, “Pirata de el Tiempo de la Vida”.

The Cuervo y Sobrinos Pirata Chronograph has a wealth of details. Details that create instant eye-appeal with a genuine sense of quality. For example,

  • the modular case mimicking the mouth of a cannon. Uniquely tailored rings of metals like stainless steel and blackened titanium are an important feature of its design.
  • Also, consistent with the ‘Pirata’ theme, the chronograph pushers are reminiscent of a harquebus. An early portable gun once used by pirates in the 17th century.
  • In addition, the watch’s ample crown replicates the appearance of a navigator’s globe. Undoubtedly, its grand scale enriches the look of the watch and proves very practical, making it easy to handle.

Total Design Reviews says:

“Aesthetically the Pirata Chrono is designed to make a bold statement and has many notable characteristics. I love the matte black dial with contrasting laser etched silver bold numerals and decorative crest. Other fine details include skeletonised satin-finished hour/minute hands, sapphire crystal lens, dome-shaped crown and chronograph pushers. At the heart of the watch is a modified Swiss made Valjoux 7750 self-winding movement, which is visible through the exhibition case back.” And, “one of their largest timepieces with a modular 316L stainless case measuring 45mm x 15.5mm and that’s why it personally appealed to me. Certainly, I would be happy to sport this magnificent timepiece at a dinner dance or private formal function.” Above all, being a limited edition, not everyone at the party will have this watch on their wrist.

Lastly, inspired by pirate history, a unique CyS logo surrounded by two swords is engraved on the crystal case-back. The sapphire crystal exhibition case-back also reveals the details of the automatic movement.
