This Sunday, July 3rd, the ELMS race took place at the Monza National Autodrome in Italy. On this occasion, IDEC SPORT was competing in the LMP2 category for victory in this 3rd ELMS 2022 race. The trio of French drivers Paul Loup Chatin, Paul Lafargue and Patrick Pilet were once again united for this event alongside the new IDEC SPORT 2022 car, the ORECA 28, on which the RESERVOIR logo appears clearly.
RESERVOIR had the honor of accompanying the French team on the road to victory by equipping the drivers with GT-TOUR Black Skeleton watches during the 4-hour race. The victory was largely deserved for the IDEC drivers who had not managed to win a title since their victory in 2019 in Portimao. The race was punctuated by numerous difficulties, no less than 4 Safety Car interventions and a Full Course Yellow, but despite these obstacles, it was with disconcerting ease and speed that the IDEC drivers completed the laps.
The cohesive team showed great determination and never let up in this intense race full of twists and turns. The French trio took first place in the Monza race and their first victory of the season with a 13.2 second lead over the Panis Racing Oreca n°65 driven by Julien Canal, Nico Jamin and Job van Uitert.
The GT-Tour Black Skeleton: a RESERVOIR x IDEC SPORT collaboration
On the occasion of the 2020 24 Hours of Le Mans, RESERVOIR announced a new watchmaking collaboration with its partner IDEC SPORT. From this collaboration was born the limited series GT-Tour Black Skeleton IDEC Sport Edition 2020, whose 24 pieces had been certified as having competed in the 24-hour race in the IDEC car.
This skeleton watch reveals the 124-piece movement and RESERVOIR’s signature watch complications: the retrograde minute, jumping hour and power reserve. With its matt black PVD titanium case, the GT-Tour Skeleton IDEC Sport Edition 2020 is distinguished by its sporty and distinguished design. Already noted for its assertive style and character, this collection is also noted for its performance. Its Swiss Made mechanical self-winding movement based on the ETA 2824-2 caliber is not without its reasons. Sharper, the design is less busy.
Continuing in the direction of the requirements of fine watchmaking, the design of the watch, like its finishes, has been thought out with the desire to offer lovers of fine watchmaking subtle reflections and contrasts, for their pure pleasure.
