Cuervo y Sobrinos Historiador Gran Premio de Cuba “1957”

This aptly-named timepiece is a chronograph, limited to 162 pieces, inspired by the action-packed Cuban Grand Prix of 1957.


he inaugural Cuban Grand Prix, the “Gran Premio de Cuba”, was held in 1957. The race threaded its way through the grand avenues and vibrant esplanades of Malecón, north of Havana. Juan Manuel Fangio, the famous Argentinian driver, secured victory in his Maserati 300S.

Cuervo y Sobrinos honours this legendary race with a limited-edition chronograph. Dressed in a vibrant shade of red, the dial evokes thoughts of passion. The cream hours and minute hands are leaf-shaped, luminescent and plump, while their colour endows the dial with a bygone charm. The central chronograph seconds hand and counter hands are baton shaped. Two chronograph registers, 30 minutes and 12 hours, are once again in shades of cream, while a small seconds display, positioned at 9 o’clock, is presented in a vivid shade of red.
