Cuervo y Sobrinos Prominente Doble Tiempo Limited Edition

To celebrate the 85th anniversary of the iconic Prominente model, Swiss luxury watch brand Cuervo y Sobrinos presents a new limited-edition model, the Prominente Doble Tiempo. Equipped with two independent movements, this watch simultaneously displays the time in two locations even when the offset is 30 or 45 minutes.

In 1938, Cuervo y Sobrinos released its most iconic model. Its name (Prominente) was taken from a term for one of the largest Cuban cigars available. This timepiece has become one of the best-selling models of the Havana born Maison. This year, the brand marks the 85th anniversary of the Prominente by releasing an updated Prominente Doble Tiempo.

While a conventional GMT may satisfy the needs of some travellers, it is unable to accurately display the prevailing hour in locations that have 30 or 45 minute offsets. For example, the time in Kolkata is GMT + 5:30. The Prominente Doble Tiempo model is capable of displaying two different times even when the offset is 30 or 45 minutes, a characteristic that makes it unique.

Consistent with the design of its forebears, this new Prominente is inspired by Art Deco, a decorative style that has strongly influenced the architecture of Havana, the historical birthplace of Cuervo y Sobrinos.

The company has also introduced subtle improvements to the case, further heightening its notably elegant appearance. For example, the caseband now features more curvaceous flanks.

The dial fuses salmon hues with intricately formed guilloché surface. The Breguet-style hour and minute hands feature luminescent treatment, aiding readability in dim light conditions. Stylised Arabic numerals hug the periphery of the dial, denoting the hours. Both the hands and indexes are presented in gunmetal grey.

The Prominente Doble Tiempo watch houses two independent automatic movements: CyS 8125 and CyS 5025.

The CyS 8125 calibre is based on the Sellita SW100, and the CyS 5025 calibre is based on the ETA 2671. The latter movement has been modified in-house in order to present the time in a 24-hour format. Each movement features a decorated oscillating weight, incorporating a fan decoration and CyS engraving.

The Prominente Doble Tiempo is available on a dark brown Louisiana alligator strap or stainless steel bracelet. The watch is limited to a total production of 138 pieces in recognition of the year the inaugural Prominente was released back in 1938.
