Cuervo Y Sobrinos Founded n 1882 in Havana, Cuba, Cuervo Y Sobrinos quickly became known as the ?Pearl of the Caribbean?, atracting some of the most influential personalities of the 20th century, including Eleonora Duse, Clark Gable, Enrico Caruso, Winston Churchill, Pablo Neruda, Ernest Hemingway, and Albert Einstein. These names were registered in the ?Golden Book? that Cuervo y Sobrinos kept to record their clients' frequent visits to the prestigious boutique in Havana's Calle San Rafael. Now produced in Switzerland using the finest Swiss movements, Cuervo Y Sobrinos watches once again grace us with their elegant and classic designs. Retaining the name that made them some of the most desirable luxury watches of the 1900?s, they are reminiscent of a rich and unequaled history and are once again sought after by collectors the world over..
