By TLex If this isn’t a diver (it isn’t), it bloody well should be with a name like Torpedo Pirate! Something a little different today, folks; a nautical watch in my two favourite alloys – Titanium and Bronze!

Actually, Titanium, Bronze and Burnished steel have been combined in a complicated modular case design that pays homage to the humble pirate.

The 45mm case is in the shape of a cannon mouth while the lugs represent the bow of a ship plundering on the Caribbean Sea. The crown, a subtle design in the shape of the globe while the buckle echoes the bow-design of the lugs.

Divers features include: a Sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective coating on both side and a water-resistance to just 5atm.

It is a well-known fact that pirates cross multiple time zones in their line of business, so a GMT is the way to go. It’s a good job then that the Cuervo y Sobrinos Torpedo Pirata (sounds way cooler with a Latin accent!) –

houses an automatic movement with an independent 24 hour hand. A Sapphire crystal caseback on each model reveals the details of the mechanism. Engraved on the crystal caseback is a unique logo with 2 swords surrounding the classic CyS logo.

The Torpedo Pirata GMT features a strap in black alligator or ostrich with grey stitching and pin buckle in Titanium.

Like Cuervo y Sobrinos? Here’s a there proper diver, the Robusto Manjuari 1882FEET
