Robusto Buceador Manjuari 1882

Sporty innovation and vanguard Swiss technology

The new version of the Robusto Manjuari 1882 from Cuervo y Sobrinos takes inspiration from a Cuban icon, the “Manjuari” fish. A species particular to the Caribbean Sea, prehistoric in origin, indigenous and today protected, that all Cubans regard with affectionate respect.

Cuervo y Sobrinos set high technical criteria for this new release. Attractive to look at, extremely comfortable to wear thanks to its soft rubber strap lined in personalized red rubber, the “Manjuari” embodies vanguard technical and technological features: modular case in steel, titanium and rubber, excellent waterproofing, screw-on crown, maximum legibility and movement with double time zone. Rubber is also used for the sides of the case, giving it a very high-tech look. A new titanium and crystal lunette ensures maximum visibility even at extreme depths.

The new Robusto Manjuari 1882 is not just an old watch. It is a sports watch able to descend to very great depths, to 1882 feet (nearly 600 metres), a number that also stands for the year in which the brand was founded.

Taking inspiration from the Manjuari was deliberate: this odd-looking, oddly-shaped fish is found on the Cuban one-peso coin and Cuervo y Sobrinos has engraved it on the back of every “Manjuari” watch.

This time it was the island of Cuba and its fantastic sea to inspire Cuervo y Sobrinos master watchmakers.
