Companies Cuervo y Sobrinos succeeds in presenting an aesthetic sensation every year. This year it has become a stunning model Pirata, a style which is extremely difficult to determine. Flawless aesthetic mix of satin red bronze and polished red gold, matt titanium and shining steel, sapphire and black plastic, Arabic and Roman numerals can be estimated unless the helpless, the definition of “fusion”.
However, the style of Cuervo y Sobrinos defies unequivocal classification. Some call it “neo-colonial”, while others have come up with a vague term “Caribbean luxury. Yes, there is something in those hours of neo-colonial, Caribbean, luxurious, but no less present typical Cuban love of life and sense of humor bordering on the grotesque. And at the same time truly Swiss meticulous commitment to the highest quality and attention to detail.
Housing Pirata, in spite of impressive dimensions – 45 x 15 mm, extremely easy. “Weightlessness” achieved through a combination of red bronze, titanium and steel material of the lugs and crown, and the groove in the middle of the shell of titanium. The back cover is an 8-millimeter titanium ring with sapphire windows.
Skeletizirovannye arrows in the shape of swords perfectly in tune with the very tall flange of polished red bronze. Flange inlaid markers in polished steel that resemble cannonballs. Central second hand from blackened steel is very long, but because of its golden tip runs very close to the wall.
Interestingly, the indices of polished stainless steel (a pirate silver) are a combination of Roman and Arabic numerals, Breguet-style. In the center – a 24-hour GMT scale of polished silver under the steel. Between dancing with Arabic numerals – the anchor. And, finally, complete the pirate mood totally unusual for a Swiss watch inscriptions 1882 Havana and Autorecargante (meaning automatic) …
Cuervo y Sobrinos – a great way to stand out, to violate the dictates of official-bureaucratic protocol, while retaining the elitism (all models of this brand are manufactured strictly limited series).
