Cuban Rolex

This 1940’s Oyster Perpetual Rolex, which has only recently come to light, is nice edition of relatively rare automatic version of this watch.  What makes this piece even more interesting is that it is stamped with “Cuervo y Sobrinos,” which in Havana’s golden age before the 1956 revolution, was the premiere boutique for Cubans and visitors of Cuba to purchase their high-end watches.  The Cuervo Y Sobrinos brand was reintroduced in recent years but with limited success in the US and Europe.  Having an original stamp from the 40’s on a Rolex like this is truly rare.
