BASELNEWS 2010Cuervo y Sobrinos Pirata complete calendar - Fusion of materials, harmony of styles
The Cuervo y Sobrinos Pirata collection introduces a new model: the chronograph with complete calendar! With this collection, the brand pays tribute to its origins with powerful, captivating, arresting watches inspired by luxury and the adventurous spirit of the buccaneer period. For good measure, add a touch of the romanticism which has always shrouded the pirate legends.
The most innovative characteristic of this collection is the imposing modular case made by different metals to create a watch in continuous evolution. The bronze, titanium and burnished, polished steel artfully combine to give life to the profile of a 17th century cannon. The chronograph pulse switches recall the muzzle of an harquebus and the crown is shaped like terrestrial globe. The dial of this automatic mechanism chronograph combines a perfect balance of three time counters: hours, 30 minutes, small seconds and a complete calendar showing: date, day of the week, month and moon-phase indication. The complex mechanism is visible via the non-reflective sapphire glass case back decorated by the unique CyS coat of arms. In this case the coat of arms is embellished with two crossed swords, a nod to the “pirate” inspiration of the collection.
The black rubber strap with bronze stitching is light grey on the underside and decorated with the maker’s coat of arms. The embossed buckle is titanium. This model will be distributed in a series limited to 200 pieces.
