Cuervo y Sobrinos Historiador Cronógrafo Landeron Limited Edition Hand-wound Watch
Cuervo y Sobrinos takes aficionados on the trail of its rich past with an original interpretation of a vintage model from the 1950s. Proposed as a fifty-piece limited series - a nod to this iconic decade - the new Historiador Cronógrafo Landeron boasts timelessly classic appeal with a deliciously vintage twist. Inside beats an authentic Landeron 248 calibre, made circa 1950. Fully restored, part by part, by Cuervo y Sobrinos, this movement brings back to life one of the most emblematic chronographs of the Swiss brand with a Latin soul. With its distinctively Fifties dial featuring a 45-minute counter and small seconds, the Historiador Cronógrafo Landeron Limited Edition forges a link between past and present, from the streets of Havana to Swiss watchmaking.

Manjaz Apollo Premium Skeleton Automatic Watch

Manjaz Apollo Premium Skeleton Automatic Watch

Doing justice to its "Time to Swiss" campaign, Manjaz plunges into the very heart of traditional Swiss watchmaking and offers glimpses of the mechanical movement that beats inside the Skeleton Ref. 7703M. Certain of its secrets are divulged through an elegant S-shaped opening in the dial: S for Swiss, of course. However, this finely crafted mechanism - whose balance oscillates at a high frequency of 8 vibrations a second - only reveals its true colours when the watch is turned over. The mechanism can be contemplated at leisure through the sapphire back.
