One of the great joys in our lives at Strickland Vintage Watches is creating original art highlighting our timepieces. Another of our great joys is having the perfect cup of café con leche at Nicahabana’s on 7th Avenue in Ybor City. And when we say perfect, we mean perfect.

All of us – including our SVW Calendar Girls – are welcomed as family by Yordany, Eloisa and the gifted tabaquaros tucked away in a little corner of Tampa paradise.

It’s an honor to present our friends with an image created especially for Nicahabana during one of our SVW calendar shoots. It was a perfect fit for Lucero Gutierrez, our stunningly beautiful Cuban SVW Calendar Girl! Through this work, entitled “Satisfacción,” we feel we’ve immortalized the essence of Nicahabana and SVW.

Yordany and his family embody all of the traits we admire: honor, respect and a faithful commitment to his patrons and craft. May Lucero smile down upon generations of happiness and prosperity for you, dear friends!

Special thanks to “La Guitarra” Lucero Gutierrez; photographer Donna Strickland and SVW Calendar goddess Hanna Cowart for her post-production work.
