Cuervo y Sobrinos introducing the Historiador Landeron

Cuervo y Sobrinos has rediscovered one of its historical chronographs, created in 1946, endowed with a bi-compax layout and a Landeron 248 movement. The Swiss Maison is pleased to unveil the Historiador Landeron.

Sometimes when we look to our past, we rediscover a forgotten moment or beloved object. Cuervo y Sobrinos has returned to 1946, a bygone era, when the company’s Latin style was much in evidence.

At this time, the prestigious brand produced a bi-compax chronograph which featured a Landeron 248 movement, an evolution of the legendary Landeron Calibre 48, a highly popular chronograph movement during the 1950s and 1960s.


Today’s reinterpretation is equipped with a see-through case back, allowing sight of a fully restored Landeron 248 movement. 

This reinterpretation of the aforementioned 1946 model is presented in a 40mm stainless steel case, consistent with modern tastes but bearing a close resemblance to the housing of the 1946 classic.


The Historiador Landeron is available in two dial variants, each infused with Latin creativity. The first model features a black dial with contrasting silver-toned registers.

The second dial option features a white dial, paired with blue hands and a blue tachymeter scale.

Cuervo y Sobrinos has looked to its illustrious past and rediscovered a horological gem from 1946. However, while the Swiss Maison is proud of its history, it embraces modernity, hence the model features subtle refinements suited to contemporary living.

Indeed, the Historiador Landeron is a reinterpretation of a former classic, perfectly refined for today’s watch collector.
