Cuervo y Sobrinos replica watch masterfully fuses two national stereotypes and produces high quality timepieces imbued with a latin spirit including this gorgeous model, the Historiador Segundos Centrales. Cuervo y Sobrinos masterfully fuses the two national stereotypes and produces high quality timepieces imbued with a latin spirit. They embrace a bygone era where Cuba, the “Pearl of the Carribean”, attracted the great and the good from stage, screen, literature and politics.

The company had a prestigious boutique on Havana’s Quinta Avendida in the early part of the 20th century, subsequently moving to Calle Muralla and then to an address on the prestigious Calle San Rafael. The clientele were impressive, including Churchill, Hemingway, Gable and Einstein to name but a few.

Switzerland is synonymous with high precision watchmaking and peerless engineering. However, if one hears the word “Latin”, thoughts of beauty, passion and glamour readily spring to mind.

The political climate may have subsequently changed in Cuba, but “Tiempo lento” expresses a way of life that remains to this day. The philosophy and culture of this ubiquitous mood, is that every moment should be cherished and savoured. Life should be lived in the moment and wholeheartedly embraced.

A recent trip to Baselworld resulted in my spotting a charmingly attractive beauty adorning the wrist of a pulchritudinous Peruvian lady. The highly attractive ensemble provided a perfect illustration of this brand’s unique styling. The Cuervo y Sobrinos Historiador Segundos Centrales demanded attention with its cream colour scheme and elegant lines.

The watches are intrinsically emotive, evoking thoughts of an exotic culture and born to engage hearts and minds.

The dial

Cream is the chosen colour for this particular timepiece. Whilst I personally found the Cuervo y Sobrinos Replica Historiador Segundos Centrales watch eminently wearable, it looked spectacular on the arm of the aforementioned Peruvian lady.

The watch replica provides an interesting proposition, as often I share watches with my wife, hence a collective purchase enhances the probability of acquisition.

The dial is not white, it is cream. It perfectly suits the persona of the watch. White would beseem a chaste lady, who you could take home to meet mother. However, cream, has a slightly decadent, spicy persona. I would liken it to a girl your mother may not approve of, but who would provide a lifetime of pleasure in one snatched moment. This watch replica oozes sex appeal and immediately caught my attention at our first meeting.

At noon, a silver coloured CYS logo resides and beneath this, the brands nomenclature is proudly proclaimed in capitalised brown text.

Towards the southerly aspect of the dial, “1882” reminds the wearer of the year the company was founded along with the words “Swiss Made”, providing assurance of reliability.

The silver coloured hour and minute hands are sinuous and flowing. They have a classical appearance, congruent with the 1950s styling presented. A central seconds hand, again presented in a silver hue, is lithe, nimbly traversing the dial.

Hours are marked with brown Roman numerals. They are elongated in profile, reinforcing the sense of grace, befitting a statuesque señorita.

A date aperture resides at 3 o’clock. The date is presented in brown against a cream canvas.

The case

The case diameter of 40mm perfectly suited the female wearer I photographed at Basel, but would equally befit the majority of male wearers.

The model is presented in stainless steel and has a restrained tone. It does not shout or demand to be heard. It knows it is beautiful and will garner attention with little effort. The case design and restrained dial coquettishly seduce those who make the watches acquaintance.

On many watches, combining satin-brushed surfaces with polished metal softens the appearance. However, in this instance all surfaces are highly polished, yet do not appear sickly, rather lifting the subtle shade of the dial and strap in a wonderfully resolved outcome.

The welded lugs draw the strap close in affectionate embrace, allowing the watch replica to envelope the wrist comfortably.

Those who enjoy seeing the heartbeat of a timepiece will be delighted to see this watch replica is fitted with a sapphire caseback which invites admiring glances.

The movement

There is no reason to settle for an inert quartz watch, when the spellbinding allure of a ticking heartbeat is readily available.

The self-winding rotor is decorated with the CYS logo. The specification includes 27 jewels and a power reserve of 42 hours.

Many ladies are said to select quartz watches because of the convenience they confer compared with hand-wound timepieces. However, this watch replica provides convenience courtesy of an automatic movement.

Conclusion

It is delightfully executed and blessed with an attractive face and body.

Those ladies who wish to embrace life with a timepiece fused with Swiss savoir faire and latin passion and emotion, should seriously consider the allure of this cream coloured watch.
