Flawless Elegance: Cuervo y Sobrinos Releases The Exclusive Historiador Flameante Blue Limited Edition

In the fall of 1998, Blue Nile Founder Mark Vadon found himself mired in a frustrating and confusing search as he went from store to store seeking the perfect engagement ring.

Despite months of research, Vadon found that diamond and jewelry education was lacking and knew there had to be better way. He created Blue Nile, the premier luxury jewelry brand online.

For its latest timepiece, Cuervo y Sobrinos, known as “the Swiss brand with a Latin soul,” reached back through time for inspiration. The result is the Historiador Flameante Blue Edition, which is based on a vintage design the company created in the 1950s.

The new timepiece was created to commemorate the company’s 10th anniversary in the U.S., an occasion which is celebrated with a special engraving around the watch’s ultra-thin, 2.6 mm manually-wound movement. This movement is housed in a rose gold case accented by a premium Louisiana alligator strap in midnight blue. The timepiece gets its name from the exclusive flame effect crafted on the dial which is fashioned in indigo blue.

The watch’s meticulous details, which include the Côtes de Genève fan pattern on the movement plate, an anthracite-treated balance bridge and azure-coated screws, are visible through the sapphire crystal caseback. The limited edition of the rose gold version of the Historiador Flameante Blue Edition is numbered 1 through 50 for the 50 states. A limited edition stainless steel version is numbered 1 through 132 to celebrate the number of years Cuervo y Sobrinos has been in business.
