History is a fundamental value for Cuervo y Sobrinos. The Swiss brand with a Latin soul finds its own archives to be an inexhaustible source of inspiration that imbues its collections with a “classic”, timeless style.
Once again, among this year’s new releases at Baselworld there will be an Historiador – icon of the brand, created in the Fifties. This time the somewhat “vintage” design, very elegant and typical of the Historiador, is combined with a manually wound movement with power reserve at 12 o'clock and small seconds at 6 o'clock. The ultra-slim watch symbolizes the spirit of the time also thanks to a dial decorated with the “guilloché flambé”, a design typical of the 1950s (from "flambé" comes the name of the model, "Flameante").
The new Historiador Flameante Reserva de Marcha makes use of a technical-aesthetic detail making it unique: the power reserve indicator at 12 is a rotating disk instead of the conventional sphere. This idea confirms an important component of the brand’s philosophy: continual technological innovation at the service of aesthetic harmony and balance.
Beneath the transparent caseback in sapphire crystal one can admire a very high level of finishes that underscore the brand’s striving for perfection: the platen decorated with “Côtes de Genève”, the balance bridge in a beautiful anthracite color transmitting technicality and dynamism to the movement and, finally, the classic azure screws. The words “Testimony of style since 1882”, engraved on the movement perfectly summarize the spirit and class that for more than 130 years have always distinguished CyS history.
Completing the look is a strap in premium Louisiana alligator.
