If you try to imagine what kind of timepiece would be perfect for a captain of the pirate boat from the 17th century, maybe this highly interesting model from Curvo y Sobrinos can help you. This one-of-a-kind model evokes the spirit of the romantic era and epic stories about pirates of the Caribbean Sea. High-end luxury of the Pirata Tourbillon watch symbolizes pirates’ hunger for gold, while the pretty cool crown in the shape of a globe represents their freewill and quest for a new world. The great thing about this watch is that its appearance can be changed, since its parts are not welded.
A robust, perfectly round case with the diameter of 45 mm is completely assembled by hand from pink gold, titanium and steel. Between the casing and the lunette, there are interchangeable rings which allow Cuervo y Sobrinos Pirata Tourbillon watch to be modified by replacing positions of chosen materials. A perfectly polished pink gold bezel is designed in the way that recalls outlines of the 17th century cannon.
Covered with sapphire crystal, a wide open-worked dial features so many details, which is a characteristic for this Swiss watchmaker with the Cuban roots. Of course, the absolute highlight is a large tourbillon cage, revealed at the 9 o’clock position. It is covered with the brand’s logo, made of ultra-light blue silicon, as well as central hands, the retrograde date hand, placed at the 2 o’clock position and the hand of the distinctive, applied power-reserve indicator, located at the 5 o’clock position. It is executed in pink gold, as well as some other details on the dial, such as large Roman numeral 12 and hour markers. Other features which you will immediately notice are prominent lugs, mimicking a prow of a ship. On their sides, they are adorned by diamonds.
Cuervo y Sobrinos Pirata Tourbillon watch is powered by hand-winding mechanism which incorporates two barrels for the stunning power-reserve of up to 120 hours. Exclusive decoration on its mainspring, visible through a metalized sapphire crystal, shows the brand’s founder, Don Ramon Cuervo, in the original Havana boutique. This high-end movement features 37 jewels and oscillates at the frequency of 28’800 beats per hour. The watch is available with a stylish black leather strap.
Although created as the one-of-a-kind piece, this luxurious watch can be ordered in the same case design which is something truly tempting for watch collectors.
