Pre-Castro "Cubans" at Nat Sherman

The Nat Sherman Townhouse presents...Cuervo y Sobrinos Vintage Watches.

 How's this for "timing?" In honor of December 25th take 25% off these beautiful Cuervo y Sobrinos vintage watches this Tuesday only, December 18th. These "legal Cubans" were sold in Havana from the early 1900's to 1961. They have Swiss movements which have been lovingly restored and are fully guaranteed for six months. All feature the word "HABANA" on the dial and caseback. And each is unique, whether it's a solid 18K gold chronograph or simple stainless steel dress watch. With these one day savings, prices begin at under $800.00, the lowest we have ever offered. During this special one day only holiday showing, watch curator Bill McCuddy will be offering pieces from his own C/S collection also at a 25% savings. Trade-ins and appraisals will also be offered. Your personal watch will also be polished while you examine these unique timepieces. And since these vintage timepieces make exceptional gifts, the first person to buy two watches will receive a burlwood Cuervo Sobrinos humidor. This remarkable opportunity is this Tuesday, December 18th from 1:00pm to 6:00pm. And since the most desirable pieces will go early, "time" is of the essence.

The Nat Sherman Townhouse is located at 12 East 42nd Street between Madison and Fifth Avenues in Manhattan.
