Swiss luxury watch brand Cuervo y Sobrinos has launched a special Historiador Asturias Pequeños Segundos edition with a montegrappa pen as a set. This timepiece is a tribute to the founding members of the company.
Ramón Fernández Cuervo migrated from his home in Pravia, a town in Asturias in northern Spain, and settled in Cuba. He established a jewellery store in Havana in 1862 and later he invited family members to join him. In 1882, Don Cuervo established a new company with his nephews (sobrinos), the aptly named firm ‘Cuervo y Sobrinos’.
Last year, the brand released the CYS Historiador Asturias watch as a tribute to Ramón and his nephews. Endowed with a sunray dial and offered in a choice of eye-catching hues, it imparts information in a highly legible format. The model has proved incredibly popular, courtesy of its distinctive style, notable quality and impressive value.
Now, building on the success of the Historiador Asturias, Cuervo y Sobrinos has launched a new model, the Historiador Asturias Pequeños Segundos.
This latest creation eschews the centre seconds and date function found on last year’s model in favour of small seconds display, positioned at 6 o’clock.
The Historiador Asturias Pequeños Segundos is available in two dial variants, blue or ivory. The sunray-motif dial transitions from mid-tones at its centre to deep shades near the perimeter. It features Lozangé-style hands, applied baton-style indexes and an applied CyS emblem positioned at 12 o’clock.
The Historiador Asturias Pequeños Segundos is equipped with the CyS 5158 calibre. Based on the Sellita SW 260-1, this automatic Swiss movement features an engraved oscillating weight and has a power-reserve of 38 hours.
This new Cuervo y Sobrinos model takes inspiration from some of the brand’s former watches from the 1940s. The case design echoes the styling of this era, but subscribes to modern tastes with its generous diameter of 40mm.
The steel case is highly polished, accentuating its gently arcing contours. The elongated lugs are ergonomically shaped, following the upper contours of the wrist and conferring extraordinary wearer comfort. The model features a double curved sapphire crystal.
This special Historiador Asturias Pequeños Segundos edition is offered with a montegrappa pen as a set.
