Cuervo y Sobrinos
for Emilio Carranza

Cuervo y Sobrinos pays tribute to the legendary Mexican airline pilot with the new Vuelo Emilio Carranza.

Cuervo y Sobrinos launches the new Vuelo Emilio Carranza collection, comprising three models that pay tribute to the legendary Mexican aviator. Carranza, in 1928, was the first pilot in his country to make a transnational flight between the United States and Mexico, flying 1,575 miles from San Diego (California) to Mexico City in 18.5 hours.

The watches were inspired by the aviation instruments of the 1920s. The black dial with SuperLuminova luminescent hands and indices offers excellent legibility. Emilio Carranza's portrait is engraved on the case back.

The collection comprises three timepieces, a solotempo with date, a bicompax calendar, and a chronograph. The solotempo is powered by the automatic CYS 5103 calibre (25 jewels, 28,800 vib/h, 42-hour power reserve), based on the Soprod M100.

The Vuelo Emilio Carranza Bicompax has small seconds (at 9 o'clock) and date hand (at 3 o'clock) indications on the dial. The watch is driven by the calibre CYS5160 (based on the Sellita SW 295, 31 jewels, 28,800 vibrations per hour, 38-hour power reserve), mechanical automatic.

The Vuelo Emilio Carranza Cronógrafo is a chronograph with GMT indication, driven by the calibre CYS 8120 (Dubois Dépraz 30342 base, 51 jewels, 28,800 vibrations per hour, 40-hour power reserve), also mechanical automatic.

All three models have a 44 mm steel case and are water-resistant to 3 atmospheres. They employ an anti-reflective sapphire crystal with double doming to protect the dial. The brown strap is made of vintage leather with ecru stitching.

Prices2,950 euros (solotempo); 3,450 euros (Bicompax); 4,950 euros (Cronògrafo).
