BASELNEWS 2010Strong character: Cuervo y Sobrinos Espléndidos Cronógrafo
The Espléndidos family is a very important icon within the Cuervo y Sobrinos collection. With its unmistakable art deco design, the Espléndidos is a watch for “connoisseurs”, for the discriminating individual seeking the unusual. With the presentation of the new Espléndidos cronógrafo, Cuervo y Sobrinos opens up a new chapter of this very successful product line.
The newly created cronógrafo is remarkable for its strong character, uniqueness and elegance. The refined and pure design of the Espléndidos case is strengthened by the elegant dial design – the result is a very sophisticated chronograph, a timepiece with a strong personality which finds no comparison in the watch market.
Two versions are being presented this year by Cuervo y Sobrinos at the Basel fair: the more “sporty” variation with steel case and shiny hands in steel color and the more elegant version with steel case and hands/indices in gold color – a color combination typical of the 50s. The colors of the dials are also very classical: black and ivory to underline the Latin soul of the brand. Indices and CyS emblem are applied.
Since its worldwide relaunch a few years ago, Cuervo y Sobrinos’ main purpose is to win its public by designing timepieces which have a strong identity and personality, meticulous quality and compelling emotion. This ambitious purpose is manifest in a continuos search for excellence and creativity. With the Esplendidos Cronógrafo the Swiss brand with Latin soul has – once again – achieved its target.
