The Torpedo Pirata : a romantic rebel

The Swiss Watch Manufacture Cuervo y Sobrinos pursues the tribute to its roots and continues the Torpedo Pirata adventure by launching its model GMT automatic. Produced in a limited edition of 125 pieces, the Pirata GMT comes with a black dial: the innovative modular case is made of bronze, burnished/polished steel and titanium. Also available: an 18 carats gold case, burnished/polished steel and titanium (black dial, limited edition of 25 pieces).

The call of the sea :
The Torpedo Pirata GMT door to his wonderful name. Drawing its origin in the heart of the Caribbean Sea, it defies and charm, rebels and wins - it is the companion of romantic adventurer of modern times. Pirate of the Caribbean Seas . The Cuervo y Sobrinos brand couldn’t miss the chance to draw a parallel between the historical past of its place of origin. Secret beaches, buried treasures: Caribbean islands such as Cuba, Tortuga and Santo Domingo were once a favourite hunting ground for famous pirates. Mirroring this spirit of freedom, daring and adventure, Cuervo y Sobrinos pays tribute to the rebellious and romantic side of the buccaneers. 
Pirate – a wealth of details :
Dial, case, lugs, pushers and materials: each element is an undeniable reminder of the boldness of another era.
Anchor motif – a design feature in the GMT version. 
Cannons – the case and pushers are in the shape of a cannon mouth.
Cannonball – the grooved cannonball is found on the crown.
Prow – the space between the lugs represents the bow of a ship plundering on the Caribbean Sea.
The metals – This timepiece introduces a feature that is new to watch-making: interchangeable rings fitted between the case and the bezel. The watch can evolve over time by playing with various metals carefully chosen to reflect the pirate spirit.

The treasure :
The “humidor” watch box for this unique timepiece could scarcely have taken any form other than a treasure chest containing Cuervo y Sobrinos’ latest treasure. With a cheeky nod to poker, the humidor box also contain a deck of cards.

Cuervo y Sobrinos – Timepieces with a Swiss Heart and a Latin Soul :
A luxury brand of international repute, Cuervo y Sobrinos has been producing its own watch collection in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland since 1882.
