Following the success of its original series of timepieces that celebrate the life of legendary author Ernest Hemingway, Cuervo y Sobrinos has created a new collection of watches specifically dedicated to the famous writer and loyal customer of the brand. While Hemingway was American by birth, he chose to make a home for himself in Cuba,replicas relojes and he would frequently visit the Cuervo y Sobrinos boutique in Havana during the 20 years he resided there. Produced in collaboration with Hemingway Limited, which is the organization founded by the writer’s eldest son Jack in 1988 that manages the Ernest Hemingway trademark, the new Cuervo y Sobrinos Historiador Hemingway collection spans three different limited-edition models that are inspired by the life and work of one of literature’s greatest heroes.
The three models that make up the new Cuervo y Sobrinos Historiador Hemingway collection consist of two variations of the Historiador Hemingway Icònico, along with a GMT edition called “The Fisherman” that is inspired by Hemingway’s novel, The Old Man and the Sea, which received the Pulitzer Prize for fiction in 1953 and was written by the American author while he stayed in Cayo Blanco, Cuba. The two Icònico models feature either cream or tobacco-colored dials that embody the hues that would have surrounded Hemingway during the years that he called the island nation his home. Meanwhile, “The Fisherman” GMT variant embraces a rich blue colorway that recalls Hemingway’s love of the ocean. Each of the new Historiador Hemingway Icònico models is produced as a limited edition of 882 examples, while the Historiador Hemingway GMT “The Fisherman” will be offered as an exclusive limited edition of just 288 pieces.
Despite their differences, all three of the new watches that make up the Cuervo y Sobrinos Historiador Hemingway collection feature the same stainless steel case that offers a distinct vintage-inspired appearance and measures 40mm in diameter by 11.75mm-thick. Similarly, all three of the new limited-edition Historiador Hemingway watches feature double-domed sapphire crystals with anti-reflective treatment above their dials, along with signed screw-down winding crowns at the 3 o’clock location, which help support their 100 meters of water resistance.

The dials fitted to the two Cuervo y Sobrinos Historiador Hemingway Icònico models are either cream or tobacco-colored, although each version features different colored text and accents. The cream dial has its printing in black, red, and blue, while the tobacco-colored dial has its text in white, rose gold, and red.
