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.

In addition, the Historiador Asturias is now equipped with the CYS 5124 movement, produced on a La Joux-Perret G100 base which has an impressive 68-hour power reserve.

The story

Asturias is a principality located in northwest Spain. The industrial revolution reached this region at some point around 1830. The area was heavily dependent on coal mining and iron production. However, many citizens dreamed of a new life and chose to emigrate to the Americas, including Argentina, Uruguay, Puerto Rico, Mexico and, most pertinently, Cuba.

Graceful Lozangé-style hands collaborate with applied baton-style indexes, presenting the prevailing time in a highly intelligible format. A rectangular date aperture, positioned at 6 o’clock, reveals white numerals atop a black disc.

The Historiador Asturias was officially unveiled at an event in the Sanchez Vallina Joyeros jewellery store, located in the town of Oviedo in Asturia. This is not far from where the Cuervo family lived prior to emigrating to Cuba.


The Historiador Asturias celebrates Don Ramon Cuervo, the founder of the company, his nephews and the many citizens from Asturias who chose to make Cuba their home. Collectively, these individuals have enriched Cuban society and helped make it what it is today.
