Cuervo y Sobrinos' Museum Boutique in Havana

Nov 10, 2009
Last July, the Cuervo y Sobrinos watchmaking house established a museum boutique in the historical down-town of Havana. This province of Cuba is where the company was created at the end of the 19th century.

This special store, entitled El reloj Cuervo y Sobrinos, occupies the area in a 19th century historical building, located in the center of the Muralla Street. This particular space also includes a museum, displaying antique timepieces, as well as an elegantly designed bar, where reigns the atmosphere of Havana from the 1940s.

This exquisite art deco area also welcomed the original safe of Cuervo y Sobrinos, which was exhibited in the former brand’s boutique on San Rafael Street. Both decoration and exhibition of the museum boutique demonstrate the brand’s utmost attention to detail. It pays homage to its over 100-year history.

On this special occasion, Cuervo y Sobrinos has produced solely for the boutique in Havana and the Cuban market a limited edition Torpedo watch, powered by a quartz movement. The dial of the watch is performed in brown or blue. The bottom of the watch case demonstrates the engraving, which reads “Special series for the Island of Cuba”.

As Watches.InfoNIAC.com found out, the opening ceremony of the boutique saw the attendance of Marzio Villa, President of Cuervo y Sobrinos, as well as many important political and cultural figures of the island. The inauguration was also visited by the Ambassadors of Switzerland, Spain, and Italy.

El reloj Cuervo y Sobrinos is a true gem for Havana, since it reflects the respectable past of the province. Therefore, the Cuban authorities have always rendered invaluable assistance to the Swiss watch company.
