Swiss luxury watch brand Cuervo y Sobrinos presents a new edition of the Historiador Asturias, featuring an anthracite dial. Moreover, the Asturias watch is now equipped with the automatic CYS 5124 movement, produced on a La Joux-Perret G100 base.
This watch collection is named after Asturias, a region in northwest Spain where Ramón Fernández Cuervoan, the founder of Cuervo y Sobrinos was born.
The Historiador Asturias series honours the Cuervo family birthplace. These watches belong to the Historiador collection, a range of classical models that celebrate the history and traditions of Cuba.
The highly readable dial boasts graceful Lozangé-style hands and applied baton-style indexes. A rectangular date aperture, positioned at 6 o’clock, reveals white numerals atop a black disc. Other details include a lithe central seconds hand and an applied CyS emblem positioned at 12 o’clock.
Cuervo y Sobrinos has equipped the new Historiador Asturias watch models with the CyS 5124 calibre, an automatic Swiss movement based on the La Joux-Perret G-100. Visible through the sapphire crystal case-back, the oscillating weight is decorated with Côtes de Genève and features the brand’s emblem. This 24 jewel self-winding mechanical calibre provides a power reserve of 68 hours.
Inspired by some of the Cuervo y Sobrinos watch models produced in the 1940s, the case design of Historiador Asturias echoes the styling of this era.
The 40mm diameter steel case is highly polished, accentuating its gently arcing contours. The elongated lugs project from the case, resulting in the watch sitting squarely and comfortably upon the wrist. The double curved sapphire crystal augments readability.
The Cuervo y Sobrinos Historiador Asturias watch is available in five dial colours: Anthracite, Agua Blue, British Green, Negroni Red and Tropical Tobacco.
