Cuervo y Sobrinos is a Swiss brand situated in Le Noirmont, yet it has profound Latin roots with configuration impacts from its previous years in Havana, Cuba. We assessed the Historiador Pequeños Segundos a year ago and the piece really represents the Historiador style with long, precise hauls and particular dial components. The new watches expand on this with a more modern layout and different complications, yet the assortment’s center DNA stays flawless. How about we take a nearer at the two most recent increases to the notable line, the new Historiador Luna Negra (Spanish for Black Moon), which draw impact from the brand’s vintage feel, around 1946.
The cleaned tempered steel case is 40mm in width and 11.25mm in tallness, hitting that sweet spot for both a daily driver and meeting room companion. It has unusually long, precise carries that are very much a mark component for the brand and embrace the wrist. A twofold bended sapphire crystal with an enemy of intelligent covering secures the dial, while a sapphire presentation case back displays the enriched programmed. The marked crown is flanked by two recessed pushers to set the schedules, which are one of a kind champions on the dial.
Within the dial’s focal area are two dark plates – the month at the privilege and day at the left – and both are uncovered with singular windows at the middle to relay current schedule data. Just underneath the hands is a curiously large moon stage and a few mechanics are additionally obvious as the front is partially skeletonized. Parts of this focal dial segment and the external ring have a Clou de Paris guilloché design, while the furthest ring has 31 Arabic numerals for the days of the month, relayed by a lengthened focal hand with a red bow tip. The Breguet-style hour and moment hands are seen on many Historiador models and complement the dial well, while skewer molded applied lists complete the Latin vibe. The dial comes in two tones, sand or anthracite, and the dial components are silver on the sand model and gold on the anthracite. Water-obstruction is 30 meters.
Powering the Historiador Luna Negra is the Caliber CYS 6331 programmed, in view of the ETA 2892-A2 with a Dubois Dépraz module. It has 31 gems, beats at 28,800vph (4Hz) with a 42-hour power hold. Capacities incorporate focal hours, minutes, seconds, date, day, month and moon stage. Seen from the show case back, it has a custom dark rotor with gold stars and the brand’s logo, and plates are improved with perlage. The tie is Louisiana croc with a collapsing steel lock in one or the other sand or dark to coordinate the dial, and both come with brisk delivery switches. A discretionary hardened steel wristband is likewise available.
