Cuervo y Sobrinos pays tribute to its inaugural Historiador model, released back in 1946. The aptly-named Cronógrafo 1946, a modern-day chronograph, inspired by the past, features a becoming ‘panda’ style dial, executed in antique salmon with contrasting tobacco coloured counters. The new Cronógrafo 1946 references the past, but is made for today.
Cuervo y Sobrinos and history are two entities that are inextricably linked. Since the company was founded in Havana, back in 1882, its journey has been punctuated by a series of milestones and events.
On this occasion, Cuervo y Sobrinos returns to 1946, the year it released its inaugural Historiador model, a watch that has since proved a bestseller for the firm. Paying tribute to this former classic, the company now unveils a modern-day interpretation of the Historiador, the new Cronógrafo 1946.
Presented in a stainless steel case, the dial is dressed in antique salmon and incorporates tobacco hued, snailed counters that subscribe to the highly popular ‘panda’ style, much loved by watch aficionados. A tachymeter scale frames the display while the period-inspired double curved sapphire crystal allows light to flood the dial, augmenting readability. A brown Louisiana alligator strap, featuring a matte finish, echoes the colour of the chronograph counters to deliver a harmonious appearance.
The CyS 8123 calibre, an automatic movement, beats at the heart of the Cronógrafo 1946, proffering much day-to-day convenience.
The new Cronógrafo 1946 is limited to just 100 pieces and represents a new chapter in the long and vibrant history of Cuervo y Sobrinos.
