Cuervo Y Sobrinos is proud to introduce its acclaimed Torpedo Pirata watch, featured in a new moon phase chronograph interpretation.

Inspired by the Caribbean islands such as Cuba, Tortuga and Santo Domingo, which used to be favorite places for famous buccaneers, this assertive and breathtaking model is available with a revolutionary modular case, sculptured in bronze, burnished steel and titanium.
