Havana · 1882
But its story began in 1882 when Don Ramón Fernández Cuervo, having emigrated from Spain to Cuba, established a jewelry boutique in Havana along with his six nephews, or sobrinos in Spanish.
While the Tradition’s diameter would have been around 34mm, the Lonsdale’s is 40mm, that contemporary sweet spot that wears well on most wrists. Lug to lug, it measures 44.6mm while its height is a relatively thin with at 8.6mm without the boxed glass and 10.5mm glass included.
The Lonsdale Name
The Lonsdale watch is named after the premium cigar type of the same name, and with good reason. Like the Lonsdale watch, the Lonsdale cigar is quite slim, typically six to seven inches in length and with a 42 to 44 ring gauge.
Powering the time-only indications is the automatic CYS 5158 caliber which, at its base, is a Sellita SW 260-1. This Swiss-made workhorse of a movement, with 38-hour power reserve, guarantees owners tried-and-tested reliability.
Clean & Retro-Styled
The eye-catching case serves as a superb frame for the Lonsdale’s clean, elegant dial, available in three colorways, each named after different shades of capa i.e. cigar wrapper leaf.
Made by Cuervo y Sobrinos – the only luxury Swiss watchmaker with Cuban heritage – the Lonsdale is an understated time-only watch oozing vintage appeal thanks to its old-school design inspired by classic Cuervo y Sobrinos references spawned during Havana’s mid-20th century heyday. Boasting a distinctively shaped 40mm case in polished stainless-steel and a clean, elegant dial with Alpha hands and period typeface, the Lonsdale comprises three 82-piece, small-batch limited editions, each named after cigar wrapper leaves: Candela, with silvered and green dial; Claro, with champagne dial; and Oscuro, with brown dial. “Uno de 82” is engraved on each caseback. Each named after a traditional cigar wrapper leaf color.
The Lonsdale is delivered in a versatile presentation case which, like a high-end cigar box, is crafted from Spanish cedar. On the outside, its leatherette cover features a gilded and embossed smoke swirl motif created by acclaimed watch designer Eric Giroud, as part of his personal design side project, Somewhere. Inside, a presentation tray houses not only the Lonsdale watch but also three accessories fit for cigar lovers: a black cigar rest, a black and gilded cigar tube, and a yellow remove NATO strap that resembles the silk ribbon used to bundle a wheel of quality cigars. The tray can be removed allowing the presentation case to be repurposed as a vide-poche for storing watch and cigar accessories, collectibles, or other personal effects. If combined with a humidity pack, the case can also be used for storing your favorite smokes.
