Cuervo y Sobrinos Torpedo Pirata Barbanegra Calendar Complete Chronograph

Thanks to innovative DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) coating the “Pirata Caribeño” is transformed into a “swashbuckler” that will fascinate modern men looking for unique and classy sports watches.

Right from its creation the Torpedo Caribeño, better known as the “Pirata” was a great success thanks to its very strong identity, unique design and vanguard technology, inspired by the intriguing history of XVIII century piracy. Hence its particular design whose details, such as the case’s crowns and horns, cite the cannon-mouths of sailing ships.

Cuervo y Sobrinos Torpedo Pirata Barbanegra Calendar Complete Chronograph

Introduced in 2011, this timepiece takes its name from Englishman Edward Teach, better known as Blackbeard, the most famous pirate in history. Cuervo y Sobrinos adds an important milestone to its already rich history: the “Barbanegra”, offered in the Cronógrafo and Solo Tiempo versions, will not let its owner pass unobserved.

Extremely attractive, sporty and manly, the “swashbuckler” has an all-new, all-black look (except for the titanium rings clasping the case) thanks to its DLC coating, a technique for coloring materials providing the utmost resistance and hardness.

Cuervo y Sobrinos Torpedo Pirata Barbanegra Calendar Complete Chronograph

The “Barbanegra” is a definitely modern watch in terms of slim case (43 mm for both versions), construction (modular case composed of bronze, steel and titanium) and appearance: strong character, highly legible dial and inimitable identity.

Blancpain Villeret Chronographe Monopoussoir Quantième Complet (Single-Pusher Chronograph with Complete Calendar & Moon Phases)

Pursuing its reinterpretation of the Villeret collection undertaken in 2010, Blancpain is now presenting a single-pusher chronograph with complete calendar and moon phases.

In addition to the technical challenge involved, this original combination called for particular attention in order to preserve the readability of the dial and the stylistic purity of this model, thus ensuring harmony with the traditions of the collection.

Blancpain Villeret Chronographe Monopoussoir Quantième Complet (Single-Pusher Chronograph with Complete Calendar & Moon Phases)

This model in the Villeret collection is equipped with Calibre 66CM8, a movement that emerged only recently from the workshops and was built on two principles: ensuring optimal user friendliness and preserving the understated elegance of the watch of which it will become the beating heart.

User friendliness is ensured by the protection of the complete calendar and moon-phase mechanisms. These complications, based on a set of complex and delicate gear trains, have been redesigned in order to avoid any risk of damaging the movement. The indications are adjusted by means of under-lug correctors, a patented Blancpain innovation ensuring fast correction without any need for a dedicated pointed instrument.

Blancpain Villeret Chronographe Monopoussoir Quantième Complet (Single-Pusher Chronograph with Complete Calendar & Moon Phases)

These technical choices, as well as the traditional solution of a single pushpiece controlling the chronograph, guarantee the pure profile of the case and the clarity of its dial, both signature features of the Villeret collection.

The blued steel serpentine date hand is a symbolic reference to the roots of watchmaking, which traditionally used this kind of hand to distinguish between complementary types of information. The transparent sapphire crystal case-back invites admirers to discover the quality of the finishing on the movement and its guilloché-work oscillating weight.

Blancpain Villeret Chronographe Monopoussoir Quantième Complet (Single-Pusher Chronograph with Complete Calendar & Moon Phases)

This new member of the Villeret family measuring 40 mm in diameter is available in a red gold version with a stamped opaline dial or in steel with a white dial – both fitted with an alzavellined alligator leather strap secured by a folding clasp.

Cuervo y Sobrinos Pirata Chronograph Complete Calendar

The Cuervo y Sobrinos Pirata collection introduces a new model: the chronograph with complete calendar.

With this collection, the brand pays tribute to its origins with powerful, captivating, arresting watches inspired by luxury and the adventurous spirit of the buccaneer period. For good measure, add a touch of the romanticism which has always shrouded the pirate legends.

The most innovative characteristic of this collection is the imposing modular case made by different metals to create a watch in continuous evolution.

Cuervo y Sobrinos Pirata Chronograph Complete Calendar

The bronze, titanium and burnished, polished steel artfully combine to give life to the profile of a 17th century cannon. The chronograph pulse switches recall the muzzle of an harquebus and the crown is shaped like terrestrial globe.

The dial of this automatic mechanism chronograph combines a perfect balance of three time counters: hours, 30 minutes, small seconds and a complete calendar showing: date, day of the week, month and moon-phase indication.

Cuervo y Sobrinos Pirata Chronograph Complete Calendar

The complex mechanism is visible via the non-reflective sapphire glass case back decorated by the unique CyS coat of arms. In this case the coat of arms is embellished with two crossed swords, a nod to the “pirate” inspiration of the collection.

The black rubber strap with bronze stitching is light grey on the underside and decorated with the maker’s coat of arms. The embossed buckle is titanium.

This model will be distributed in a series limited to 200 pieces.

Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Complete Calendar Moon Phase Flyback Chronograph

Blancpain’s Fifty Fathoms Collection is home to the most rugged sports watches in all of Blancpain’s lines. For 2010 Blancpain expands the Fifty Fathoms domain of sport to embrace the complications of a moon phase and a complete calendar married with the traditional sport companion of a column-wheel controlled flyback chronograph.

Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Complete Calendar Moon Phase Flyback Chronograph

This newest member of the Fifty Fathoms family, with its complicated 448-part movement, has been fitted with a host of Blancpain movement innovations. The moon phase complete calendar mechanism is drawn from the caliber F185 movement, offering the unique capability of risk-free setting of any indication regardless of the time of day or night. Other complete calendar moon phase mechanisms offered in the industry forbid setting of indications at certain times because of risk of damage to the delicate components of the calendar.

Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Complete Calendar Moon Phase Flyback Chronograph

Blancpain solved this problem with its unique design that frees the owner from worrying about whether it is safe to set the calendar indications. Setting itself is further facilitated by the incorporation of Blancpain’s patented under lug correctors that eliminate the need for adjusters on the sides of the case and which allow finger-tip setting in place of an adjusting tool.

After hundreds of years of calendar watches requiring correctors mounted in plain view on the sides of the  case, an inspiration at Blancpain placed them, for the first time in 2004, hidden from sight under the lugs. The result is a beautifully clean side profile of the watch bearing  no corrector dimples and a corrector that can be manipulated by hand, without use of a tool.

Detailed views of this Blancpain patented under-lug corrector system.

Pushing the cam so that it rotates slightly brings a finger in contact with  the corrector components of the watch movement. A spring guards against inadvertent movement of the cam.

The chronograph base is Blancpain’s classic vertical clutch column-wheel controlled flyback movement. The stainless steel case is 45 mm in diameter and fitted with a blue colored sapphire unidirectional bezel and blue dial.
