Cuervo y Sobrinos expresses with the Esplendidos Retrograde in gold 18 kt the full measure of the passion that the brand devotes to mechanical watches and to the refinement of the cosmopolitan era of Havana, Cuba.
A graceful gold silhouette, a dial with simple graining and the brand‘s emblematic style – it took neither more nor less to make the Esplendidos Retrograde in 4N 18-carat gold into a symbol of perfect gentleman elegance.
Expressing classically restrained aesthetics, the dial reveals a central opening showing the retrograde date display over an arc. At the end of the month, the hand immediately returns to its original position. The day of the week can be read on a small inside dial located at 9 o‘clock. At 6 o‘clock, the power-reserve display sets the finishing touch to this vision of Haute Horlogerie. The precision of the minutes and seconds can be read from a delicate grid running around the dial.
The Esplendidos Retrograde with power reserve houses a self-winding mechanism whose sophisticated details can be admired through a sapphire crystal caseback. By way of a brand within the brand, the indigo engraved CyS logo embellishes the oscillating weight with the Côtes de Genève pattern. The model has a power reserve of 42 hours. The screw-in caseback guarantees water-resistance to 3 atm.
The Esplendidos Rétrograde comes with a crocodile leather strap with pin buckle or folding clasp. It is available in black, cream and tobacco.
