At Baselworld 2013, Cuervo y Sobrinos unveiled a new model based on a vintage exemplar: an ultra-thin watch Cuervo y Sobrinos designed in the 1950s.
The new Historiador Flameante is a contemporary reworking of an exquisite design with formal harmony that also reveals the brand’s know-how and technical skills. The name of the watch derives from the special workmanship on the dial, a prized and exclusive “flamed” effect (“flameante”, in Spanish).
Its ultra-thin (only 2.5 mm) manually wound movement with second hands is housed in a pink gold case that is perfectly proportioned (40 mm in diameter, 6.2 thick). From its sapphire crystal caseback you can admire its careful detailing: the Côtes de Genève pattern on the movement plate, the anthracite-treated balance bridge, and the azure-coated screws.
The words “Testimony of style since 1882” engraved around the movement emphasize the impeccable taste that has always distinguished Cuervo y Sobrinos styling. Completing the look is a premium Louisiana alligator strap.
