Secret beaches, buried treasures: Caribbean islands such as Cuba, Tortuga and Santo Domingo were once a favourite hunting ground for famous pirates. The new Torpedo Pirata Crono Day Date watch pays tribute to the adventurous and romantic spirit of the buccaneers. This is why within the bezel the sentence “Pirata de el Tiempo de la Vida” is engraved.
All the parts are clearly reminiscent of the brazenness of the great pirates: the case is in the shape of a cannon mouth while the lugs represent the bow of a ship plundering on the Caribbean Sea. The crown subtle design in the shape of the globe and the buckle recaptures the design of the lugs.
An important feature of this masterpiece is the modular case composed of rings uniquely tailored allowing to combine the various metals which create a watch with ongoing evolution. In fact, the stainless-steel material used in the current model, is the innovation compared to its predecessors made in bronze, the material preferred at the time of the great buccaneers of the 17th century.
The Torpedo Pirata Chrono Day Date houses an automatic movement, the black velvet effect of the chronograph’s dial combines a perfect balance of two counters: 12-hour scale and 30-minute counter. In addition to a central seconds’ counter, hours and minutes and also an independent second’s counter at 9 o’clock with printed Cuervo y Sobrinos blazon and day date window at 3 o’clock.
The sapphire crystal case-back on each model reveals the details of the automatic movement. The crystal case-back features a unique logo for this model; two “swords” surround the classic CyS logo, paying a tribute to the pirate world in which the watch was inspired.
