Reservoir creates the radical reading of time

for a maximum boldness

How to read time ?

The retrograde minute and the jumping hour act as substitutes for the more usual three hands on Swiss watches. RESERVOIR watches are innovative for the radical way the time is displayed, which is achieved by drawing on two watchmaking complications combined with the power reserve. The retrograde minute at 240° recalls the R.P.M. counters, the manometers, and the depth gauges. The jumping hour recalls the mileage meters, and the power reserve display echoes the fuel and oil gauges.

Latest novelties

Novelties are the latest models or watches collections revealed by RESERVOIR. Some pieces are the subject of a particular collaboration, and have lived with the hero or the partner team a special and intense adventure.

“Reservoir est connue pour l’esthétique particulière de ses montres et pour sa réputation en termes de complications. Son identité se résume dans une lecture totalement différente de l’heure grâce à l’usage de trois complications: une minute rétrograde, une heure sautante et une réserve de marche. Un vrai et solide contenu horloger. Sur le modèle Popeye, le cadran présente une configuration rétrograde à 240 °, avec les minutes affichées sur les trois quarts de la surface et les heures de fonctionnement indiquées de manière évidente via une lunette à 6 heures, aux pieds du héros …” MONTRE HEROES, Marine Ulrich – Journaliste

“The Kanister 316 variant takes on a new look with its brushed steel case mounted on a vintage five-link bracelet. The combination of modernity and the retro aspect creates an obvious harmony.” Europar Star, Serge Maillard – Editor in chief

“I’m not gonna lie; Reservoir was not on my radar too much before its GT Tour Blue Edition landed on my table. Actually, it landed in front of my door for six hours before I could arrive home to pick it up (thank you, DHL), but that’s another story. Not checking this brand out sooner was a grave mistake because this watch is nice. Like, very nice.” Fratello, Balazs Ferenczi- Editor

“I’ve been pleasantly surprised by the Reservoir Hydrosphere “Air Gauge”. Certainly, it won’t talk to the masses and is a niche product. Still, it is a unique and mechanically advanced display, the original design (without being too extreme), the cleverness of the bezel (even though unconventional), the cool features (the manometer inspiration, the full luminous dial) and the overall quality of the execution have convinced me.” MONOCHROME, Brice Goulard – Managing Editor

“On the wrist, the Kanister is a real looker, thanks to that super graphic dial – and nicely matched polished titanium – all rounded out by the cool retro styling.” Ming Liu – Journalist

“Reservoir: addicts au D-Day. La jeune marque franco-suisse rend un hommage horloger à l’une des stars immortelles du débarquement de Normandie: la jeep.”  Judikael Hirel – Journaliste Horloger

“The diversity of products means Reservoir isn’t just for aero fans or battleship enthusiasts. It’s for anybody who appreciates beautiful, analog instrumentation.” Stephen Hale Watson – Journalist

“Déjà spectaculaire en version acier grâce à son mode d’affichage caractéristique, à savoir heure sautante, minute rétrograde et indication linéaire de réserve de marche, l’Hydrosphère n’attendait plus qu’une déclinaison en bronze pour gagner de nouveaux galons.” Le Point Montres, Hervé Gallet – Journaliste

“The Reservoir Black Sparrow series represents a unique twist on a classic appearance, and despite the fact that it offers many of the same hallmark features that define other aviation-themed models, the brand’s unique jumping hour and retrograde minutes display enables the new collection to still feel unique and special.” aBlogtoWatch, Ripley Sellers, Associate Editor

“Comment se faire une place sur un marché où les acteurs de poids ne manquent pas ? En cassant une partie des codes. C’est ce que réalise la jeune griffe de montres Reservoir depuis son lancement en 2017.” Clotilde Briard, journaliste (Les Echos)

“French watchmaker RESERVOIR’s game-changing take on telling time enters a new era. Its Swiss Made watches — that read more like dynamic instrumentation than fussy horology — are perfectly engineered for fans of vintage speedsters.” Mike Espindle – Journalist

“Vintage cars and watches share a similar appeal, they speak to a lifestyle of adventure, freedom and the joy of the open road. Reservoir’s creations tap into this dream, with nods to some of the most iconic motors of past and the legendary racers at their wheel.” Eleanor Pryor – Editor – Brummell Magazine

“It’s no secret watches do more than just tell time. The new Reservoir Kanister Silver is a good example: It puts you in the driver’s seat every time you glance at it.” Michael Charboneau – Associate Editor
