Cuervo y Sobrinos Historiador Flameante Reserva de Marcha Watch

Cuervo y Sobrinos Historiador Flameante Reserva de Marcha Watch

True to its philosophy to build on the past to invent the future, Cuervo y Sobrinos has looked to one of its iconic watches from the 1950s as the setting for an extra-thin calibre with the innovative addition of a power-reserve disc which only appears when power is running low. Deliciously vintage with its characteristic 1950s "flamboyant" guilloché, hence its name, this timepiece demonstrates, with enviable style, the impressive expertise which this most Latin of Swiss brands has acquired over its 132-year history.
