Cuervo y Sobrinos company can present an aesthetic sensation every year. This year it was a stunning model Pirata, which determine the style is extremely difficult. Flawless aesthetic blend 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 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, a luxurious, but there are equally characteristic of the Cubans love of life and sense of humor that borders on the grotesque. And at the same time truly Swiss meticulous pursuit of 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 a groove in the middle of the body made of titanium. The back cover is an 8-mm titanium ring with sapphire windows.
Skeletizirovannye sword-shaped hands perfectly in tune with its high 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 pirate silver are a combination of Roman and Arabic numerals, Breguet-style. In the center – a 24-hour GMT scale of polished silver steel under. 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 break the bureaucratic dictates of the service and protocol, while retaining the elitism (all models of this brand are manufactured strictly limited series).
