Cuervo y Sobrinos – Historiador Flameante

Historiador Flameante

Classic, ultra-slim good looks and a dash of Havana heat

Cuervo y Sobrinos, the Swiss brand with Cuban roots, presents a new edition of its classic Historiador Flameante timepiece with a hypnotic salmon dial. Inspired by an original model produced by Cuervo y Sobrinos in the 1950s, the latest Historiador Flameante flaunts an ultra-slim, vintage-style case and an original salmon ‘flameante’ or ‘flaming’ dial, a combination designed to evoke the dynamic tempo of Havana’s Golden Age.

Havana in the 1950s was an exotic island playground for socialites and celebrities.  By day, the reputable Cuervo y Sobrinos watch boutique in downtown Havana attracted illustrious visitors like Caruso, Hemingway and Churchill; by night Hollywood stars and jet-setters would flock to Floridita for cocktails and to the Tropicana nightclub until sunrise.  As a brand with authentic Cuban heritage, the watches produced by Cuervo y Sobrinos conjure this atmosphere of luxurious hedonism.

Available in stainless steel, the case of the Historiador Flameante has a diameter of 40 mm and an ultra-thin height of just 6.2 mm, a perfectly proportioned dress watch that will glide discreetly under a shirt cuff. The bold jutting lugs, a nod to the tailfins of American cars popular in Havana in the 1950s, are ergonomically designed and extremely comfortable on the wrist. Unobtrusive yet easy to manipulate, the crown sits close to the caseband, and the thin bezel offers a generous panorama of the dial.

The swirling guilloché flame motif engraved on the dial reveals the brand’s devotion to craftsmanship. The dancing flames emanating from the centre endow the dial with a fluid, mesmerising spectacle. Evocative of the sunsets over the Bay of Havana, the elegant salmon dial provides a marked contrast with the polished case. Eight silver spear-shaped and faceted markers, along with Arabic numerals at 3, 6 and 9 and the brand logo at noon, are applied to the surface of the dial providing additional dimension and volume.  Animating the dial at 6 o’clock is the recessed small seconds counter with a snailed interior and the word ‘Flameante’. To consolidate the vintage identity of the watch, a double-curved sapphire crystal protects the dial. Not only is it a historically accurate feature of watches from the 1950s, but it also allows light to flood the dial plane enhancing legibility and showcasing the beautiful pattern. In tune with contemporary standards, the elegant lance-shaped hands have a touch of luminescence at their tips to consult the time in low light conditions.

At the heart of the Historiador Flameante is the ultra-thin (2.5 mm) Swiss hand-wound movement. Visible through the sapphire crystal window on the caseback, the finishes pay homage to traditional watchmaking: the bridges are decorated with Côtes de Genève, the main plate is embellished with circular graining, and there is a profusion of blued screws. The caseback is engraved with ‘Testimony of Style since 1882’, a reference to the foundation of the Cuervo y Sobrinos brand.

 

A handsome black Louisiana alligator strap adds the final touch of elegance to the Historiador Flameante.
