The role of the historian is to rediscover the past, looking closely at those factors which have influenced a particular era. Sometimes by exploring a bygone age, the historian can uncover a once forgotten beauty.

Cuervo y Sobrinos reopened its Havana boutique in 2009. Dr Eusebio Leal Spengler, Havana’s official Historian, proved instrumental in the restoration of the boutique as well as many of the glorious buildings synonymous with the ‘Pearl of the Caribbean’.

Cuervo y Sobrinos wanted to recognise Dr Leal’s contribution to Havana’s architectural renaissance by naming its classical collection of watches, Historiador (Historian).
