Cuervo y Sobrinos Historiador Cronógrafo Landeron Limited Edition Hand-wound Watch

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.
