Hot Latino Meets Swiss Style

By Chris Boyle


History is a fundamental value for Cuervo y Sobrinos.

The Swiss brand with 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.

One of the new releases presented by the brand at Baselworld this year is based on a vintage design: an ultra-thin watch Cuervo y Sobrinos designed in the 1950s. Then as now, this timepiece is a symbol of impeccable taste and flawless elegance.

The new Historiador Flameante is a contemporary reworking of an exquisite design that showcases a disciplined harmony that demonstrates the brand’s craftsmanship and technical skills. The name of the watch derives from the unique workmanship on the dial, a prized and exclusive “flame” effect (“flameante”, in Spanish).

The 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). Glimpsed from its sapphire crystal caseback you can admire the 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 exquisite 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 delight aficionados of fine mechanical watches.
