The Prominente perfectly embodies the values of Cuervo y Sobrinos: it is sober, elegant, sophisticated, timeless and is already a classic. It has existed from the earliest days of the brand and still remains a must-have for lovers of classic watches and collectors. The Prominente is named after one of the largest Cuban cigars, like the Balthazar is used to describe an oversized champagne bottle.
The watch has generous proportions (33.75mm x 52mm) and yet fits perfectly on the wearer’s wrist thanks to its elongated and curved shape.
The classic tonneau or rectangular form is inspired by a classic design from the 1930’s with an Art Deco aesthetic. While trends in the market have moved away from squarer designs in the last decade, the Prominente had held its ground with connoisseurs who recognize a true design classic when they see it.
The design of the dial is perfectly consistent with the case as are the leaf shaped hands and the exploded Arab numerals. The ‘guilloche’ design is particularly intricate and achieved using the latest technology.
The center of the dial is made out of mother-of-pearl which has been cut with extreme precision before being fixed. The Arabic numerals and the hallmark come in different color combinations as do the watch dials.
The collection comes in four different colors. Silver, black, champagne and rum colours. Using the brown rum color is a first for the Cuervo y Sobrinos brand in recognition of Cuban rum which is considered to be amongst the best in the world.
