Cuervo y Sobrinos unveils a new timepiece, the Espléndidos Scott Jacobs. Once again, the luxury brand has joined forces with the celebrated American artist widely known for painting Harley Davidson motorcycles. This new creation, limited to 100 pieces, features a depiction of a 1939 Knucklehead Bobber motorcycle on its dial.
Scott Jacobs, the celebrated American artist, has a passion for vintage motorcycles and is widely known for painting Harley Davidson motorcycles, including the pre-war EL Knucklehead.
The Knucklehead was produced from 1936 – 1947, however, it is the pre-war examples which are the most desirable, coveted by legions of Harley-Davidson enthusiasts. Scott met two such enthusiasts who shared his passion for the iconic American brand, Patrick and Cris Simmons.
They owned a 1939 Knucklehead Bobber. While this motorcycle differed from its original factory specification, its vivid blue and yellow paint job, ‘bobbed fenders and knobby tyres’ attracted many admiring glances.
The dial of the Espléndidos Scott Jacobs watch has provided the American artist with a horological canvas for expressing his creativity. Initially, Scott produced an original artwork in full size. Thereafter, this artwork was replicated in miniature form using a special 4-colour laser printing technique.
Each eye-popping shade found on the 1939 Knucklehead Bobber is beautifully represented on the watch’s distinctive dial.
The watch is delivered with a Blue Alcantara with orange stitching strap and an additional Stainless steel bracelet.
