Cuervo y Sobrinos Robusto Day-Date “Churchill” Limited Edition

Unveiled at Baselworld 2017, this unique timepiece pays tribute to Winston Churchill, cigar "aficionado" and loyal customer of the Cuervo y Sobrinos boutique in La Habana.

The Churchill model is at its 4th Edition of the Robusto collection, sturdy and sophisticated, it is an extremely functional watch with an innovative modular case. The case design and the construction are highly sophisticated, incorporating three parts: the central body, the lateral sides and the back that fit perfectly to the horns.
The exclusive and innovative crown system, Inspired by the old pocket watch, is manufactured with a unique “key” system almost integrated in the case ending up in a stronger protection.

The “white ceramic” lacquered dial is marbled in grey anthracite, to remember the old "craquelé" dial to enhance the uniqueness of the brand associated to its Cuban origins. The double curved sapphire crystal and the opened back case give to the watch a vintage appeal.
The Robusto Churchill model has been produced in a limited edition of just 200 pieces worldwide – all numbered on the dial at 6 o’clock. The automatic movement has a power reserve of 38 hours.

Available from May 2017.
