Haute Time: This Watch Will Start Meanignful Conversations…

Gotta love this wrister from Cuervo y Sobrinos! I love retrograde complications, and this one, the Historiador Retrogrado, doesn’t disappoint. Day, date lad power reserve are all swinging with retro complications and are designed with very unique apertures. I really wish I could see more from this watchmaker, but maybe less is more after all…

This is a pre-Baselworld preview, so I’m not sure about pricing on this. I do know of a former distributor for CyS (Cuervo y Sobrinos Benelux) that you can contact though, if you have questions about this or other CyS timepieces. I’ve never purchased from them, or anywhere else online, but it might be worthwhile to check them out.
