In tribute to Marzio Villa’s passion for timed- and high-speed auto races, Cuervo y Sobrinos has created Historiador Racing, a special watch that will appeal to actual racing drivers. Dedicated to participants in the Cuervo y Sobrinos Cup – the famous vintage car rally held in the heart of the Alps – Historiador Racing is sure to become an icon for lovers of speed and fine cars.
The new Historiador Racing collection takes its inspiration from the details of vintage cars. The rear of the steel case is engraved with the word “racing”, while the dial is inspired by the wheel spokes of vintage cars and the big wing nuts attaching the wheels to their hubs.
The Historiador racing, housed in a thin, stainless steel case has a self-winding ETA 2824-2 / SW 200-1 movement equipped with two barrels to ensure a 38-hour power reserve. Outstanding on the spoked dial are central hands in steel with superluminova, the serial number and date at 3 o’clock.
The Historiador Racing is made in a limited edition of 70 pieces, exclusively for drivers in the race, and the trademark is engraved on the back of each watch together with the number of the car. The watch will also be sold in a version dedicated to real racing buffs.
