Swiss luxury watch brand Cuervo y Sobrinos reaffirms its position as the official timekeeper of the Cigar Smoking World Championship with a dedicated Esplendidos special edition.
The relationship started in 2015 when Cuervo y Sobrinos was named the official timekeeper at the CSWC, a prestigious event held at select locations around the world from the Amalfi Coast to St. Petersburg and from New York to Paris. It is now in its 10th year bringing together cigar club presidents, dignitaries, manufacturers and other brands who want to associate their names to this prestigious international event.
Dupont, Havana Club, Cigar Journal and others are among the participants. The Cigar Smoking World Championship plays host to both male and female contestants from around the globe who share a common love for fine cigars. Participants in the event slowly smoke a cigar, savouring its many qualities. The winner is the last person to finish smoking their competition cigar.
The unique event created by cigar expert Marko Bilic is celebrating the 10th anniversary in style and for this occasion Cuervo y Sobrinos is launching three special editions of its Esplendidos Collection.
The competition travels to some of the most beautiful locations around the world with the final always taking place in Split (Croatia), at the end of August.
The brand with Cuban roots has created three special versions of the Esplendidos Collection. The Esplendidos is an historical design which perfectly reflects the spirit of the brand. Inspired by the finest Art Deco style, it combines a fantastic heritage with timeless classicism with its typical 1950’s design. It reflects the true character and identity of the brand.
The CSWC Serie is a collection of fine watches, incorporating exquisite details, crafted for individuals who appreciate the finer things in life and prefer to take the time to savour their inherent qualities.
The watches come in three versions. One version for the World Champion – the winner at the Grand Final in Split (30.August.2019): this watch is a unique piece with a cream/champagne. The second, with a very elegant silver dial, is for the winner of the main international qualifying (one country, one winner).
And lastly Cuervo y Sobrinos has created a Limited Edition for cigar aficionados with a typical tobacco dial color: an exclusive edition of only 80 pieces that is available at all CSWS events worldwide (the Esplendidos CSWC can also be ordered directly at the Cuervo y Sobrinos factory in Le Noirmont, Swiss Jura and is also available without the CSWC logo).
The Esplendidos CSWC special edition range mirrors the competition spirit and presents following unique features: a background that reproduces the typical tobacco leaf design, the dial applied indices are shaped like cigars and the CSWS logo can be seen at the bottom of the dial. On top, the case back of the Esplendidos has a charming art deco engraving that is inspired by the interior of the original safe of the Cuervo y Sobrinos boutique in 1882. Each timepiece comes in a beautiful humidor.
The first Esplendidos CSWC will be unveil during the World Champion final in Split (Croatia) at the end of August 2019. The lucky World Champion will be the first to wear this unique model. The first 20 pieces of the Limited Edition with tobacco dial will also be available at the final for all participants and cigars aficionados.
