Cuervo y Sobrinos unveils two new Historiador models, each providing a different perspective of the moon yet sharing many elements in common.
In the Southern Hemisphere, the moon appears upside down with its sunlit side opposite to how it appears in the Northern Hemisphere. The new Historiador Luna Negra is intended for use in the Northern Hemisphere, while the Historiador Doble Luna is suitable for all geographic locations.
The Historiador Luna Negra is offered with a choice of anthracite or sand-coloured dials and features colour-coordinated hands and indexes. The moon-phase is shown via a large crescent-shaped aperture, designed to show the age of the moon as viewed within the Northern Hemisphere.
Another key difference with this model is that some areas of the dial are open-worked; revealing an array of movement parts normally hidden from view.
The model also displays the date, day, month and includes a central sweep seconds hand.
Two versions of the Historiador Doble Luna are available, each endowed with a blue dial. This model simultaneously shows the age of the moon in both the Northern Hemisphere and Southern Hemisphere. However, this model’s list of functions is not limited just to its stylish moonphase indications.
Colour-coordinated Breguet hour and minute hands float above a sea of blue Clous de Paris guilloche, interacting with diamond-shaped indexes and elongated Roman numerals.
A hand, endowed with a red crescent-shaped tip, circumnavigates the dial, pointing to the prevailing date. A brushed steel circlet occupies the central area of the dial and features two apertures, one revealing the day and a second disclosing the month. The brand’s name adorns the upper section of the brushed circlet. A central sweep seconds hand completes the inventory of functions.
Both the Historiador Luna Negra and the Historiador Doble Luna are housed in a 40mm highly polished stainless steel. The style of the case bears a close resemblance to a former design seen on one of the Maison’s vintage models, circa 1946. This case features an ergonomic lug design.
The automatic Calibre CYS 6331 incorporates a colored and decorated oscillating weight.
