“The allure of the ultra-thin, Cuervo y Sobrinos-style”
History is a fundamental value for Cuervo y Sobrinos. The Swiss brand with a Latin soul finds an inexhaustible source of inspiration in its archives and imbues its collections with a timeless, “classic” style giving personality to shapes and models from the past.
Even one of the new releases it presented at Baselworld this year was based on a vintage exemplar: an ultra-thin watch Cuervo y Sobrinos designed in the 1950s, then as now a symbol of impeccable taste and extreme elegance.
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, 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.
With its great technical and aesthetic refinement the Historiador Flameante will certainly enthuse aficionados of fine mechanical watches.
