Throughout life, we often feel an unwavering desire to uncover hidden treasures. Cuervo y Sobrinos is proud to unveil a new iteration of the Historiador Squelette that reveals the intricate mechanisms at work beneath the dial.

The Historiador collection, originally created in 1946, has been relaunched  in 2009 to pay tribute to the prestigious past of the brand and revive a once forgotten beauty. This classical collection features near replicas of old historical models with a modern twist. With its radically assertive codes, the Historiador range best interprets the essential values of the brand with Latin roots, namely classical, timeless elegance and refinement.

The Historiador Squelette brings the timeless aesthetic appeal of skeleton watches to the Historiador collection. This model partially displays various movement parts to satisfy the wearer’s curiosity about the automatic mechanisms tirelessly working beneath the dial. To this day, the design of this openworked model continues to attract admiring glances with its allure undiminished, despite changing fashions.

This new design of the Historiador Squelette combines retro-artistic patterns, reminiscent of the stained glass windows commonly found in Havana, with black movement parts that represent the embrace of modernity as well as the Swiss craftsmanship. This harmonious fusion of Latino exoticism and Swiss heritage is at the core of the Cuervo y Sobrinos brand. Complementing this new design is a pattern of 26 purple jewels that draw attention and invite both the wearer and onlookers to examine and marvel at the technical prowess of the movement.

The dauphine-shaped hour and minute hands return with their luminescent treatment that retains readability in dim light. The slender, red central sweep seconds hand contrasts with the openworked dial beneath to remain easily visible. The CyS logo, a symbol of quality since 1882, is applied to the periphery of the dial.

Endowed with a gleaming 40mm stainless steel case, the Historiador Squelette is a prime example of elegant, timeless design. The graceful arcing sides of the case are juxtaposed with the elongated, angular lines of the lugs. The double-curved sapphire crystal features anti-reflective coating and is water resistant to 3 ATM. While each facet of the case exhibits a distinct shape, the two pair beautifully.

The brand never neglects any small detail. The strap of the Squelette is made by an innovative black nubuck Louisiana alligator with red alcantara interior. The model is also available with a resplendent stainless steel bracelet.
