The city was a Mecca for knowledge and pleasure – a freedom known only to those who have visited. It was synonymous with an elegant lifestyle and luxury that was unmatched. “La Casa,” or “the home,” was the company’s unique atelier on Havana’s prosperous Avenida Quinta.
Within fifty years of their establishment, Cuervo y Sobrinos expanded to three different points in Europe: Pforzheim, Germany, where precious stones were chosen, Paris, where the stones were polished, and La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland, where the company established their watch manufacturing process alongside the world’s very best.
Patrons who wear Cuervo y Sobrinos demonstrate a passion and appreciation for a time long past – a quieter, more dignified era. The passion of its collectors means some of the original timepieces still exist today as an unshakable measure of their quality, craftsmanship, and luxury.
Today, the legend is reborn. With a mix of exotic, Latin passion and warmth with the rigor and expertise of the Swiss process, Cuervo y Sobrinos is once again world-renowned for its elegance and vigor. Their collections earn high marks and appreciation at the annual BaselWorld festival in Switzerland and their clientele includes movie stars, pop singers, businessmen, politicians, and collectors.
“El tiempo lento”
A time invented on its own and operating outside of the day-to-day. The ability to appreciate the finer things in life – refined, elegant, and luxurious. The spirit of Cuervo y Sobrinos watches shares the elegant refinement of the influential people who wore it long ago and those who still do. Instead of copying the old models, the modern Cuervo y Sobrino timepieces share the philosophy, tradition, and elegance of the originals.
