Asturias Pequeños Segundos
Cuervo y Sobrinos was founded in 1882 by Cuervo and his nephews. This group of remarkable entrepreneurs and highly skilled goldsmiths originated from Asturias, a region in northwest Spain.
The Historiador Asturias honours those courageous emigrants who, in the 19th century, sailed to the Americas in the pursuit of fortune. Cuba proved a popular choice for the intrepid Asturians, eager to discover a new world and make a better life.

Building on the success of the Historiador Asturias, Cuervo y Sobrinos has added a new model to the company’s extensive collection. The Historiador Asturias Pequeños Segundos shares some of the physical characteristics of its older sibling, but on this occasion it simply displays the hours, minutes and seconds. The watch is free from superfluous detail and imparts meaning in a pure, elegant form.
Ramón Fernández Cuervo migrated from his home in Pravia, a town in Asturias in northern Spain, and settled in Cuba. He established a jewellery store in Havana in 1862 and later he invited family members to join him. In 1882, Don Cuervo established a new company with his nephews (sobrinos), the aptly named firm ‘Cuervo y Sobrinos’.
Upholding the character of the Historiador Asturias, this latest model is a paragon of elegance. Graceful Lozangé-style hands collaborate with applied baton-style indexes, displaying the time in an easy-to-read form.
By releasing the Historiador Asturias Pequeños Segundos, Cuervo y Sobrinos honours Ramón Fernández Cuervo and his compatriots who courageously travelled to Cuba to begin a new life on the island. Collectively, these individuals have enriched Cuban society and helped make it what it is today.
