Cuban originsPreview BASELWORLD 2017: The Cuervo y Sobrinos Torpedo Pirata Chrono Day Date
Cuervo y Sobrinos looks to its Cuban origins and brings a Caribbean flavour to Swiss watchmaking. The new Torpedo Pirata Chrono Day Date offers a wealth of details, inspired by the buccaneers who once plundered ships along the Cuban coast.
The lugs reproduce the bow of a pirate vessel, a design repeated in the buckle on the strap, while the crown has the shape of a globe. Visible through the sapphire crystal back, the automatic chronograph calibre with day/date calendar sits inside an ingenious case whose modular construction lends itself to all kinds of creativity, such as the use of steel; an innovation compared with previous Torpedo Pirata watches which are sculpted from bronze, a favourite metal of the great buccaneers of the seventeenth century.
