On June 16th, 2022, Reservoir Watch had the pleasure of taking the lucky owners of the RESERVOIR Hydrosphere Greg Lecoeur diving watch on a diving session with the talented eponymous photographer Greg Lecoeur and François Moreau, CEO and founder of the French-Swiss brand. Greg Lecoeur, ambassador of RESERVOIR, is particularly engaged in the preservation of nature and uses photography to expose the beauty of the marine world and raise awareness of the vulnerability of ecosystems. His portfolio of images has conquered the four corners of the planet and his images have been published in prestigious magazines such as National Geographic and Le Figaro.
The bronze Hydrosphere Greg Lecoeur watch was in its natural environment on Thursday June 16th, taken to the sea depths of Port-Cros Island, one of the three islands of Hyères, a coastal archipelago in the Mediterranean sea. The session offered the lucky owners of the waterproof watch the opportunity to test the model and use their watch (for those who had not yet done so) in optimal and immersive conditions. They had the wonderful opportunity to live a unique experience, alongside a professional and not the least. Greg Lecoeur’s presence and knowledge in terms of scuba diving was a precious help for the most novice participants and will have guided the most experienced among them in the exploration of unknown worlds. The extraordinary place where this dive took place made the session even better and the participation of Greg Lecoeur undeniably allowed the participants to experience a great moment, during which time simply stopped.
The limited edition Hydrosphere GREG LECOEUR
The Greg Lecoeur Hydrosphere watch has a 45mm diameter bronze case with a brushed finish, water resistant to 250 meters, thanks to a screwed steel case back.
The blue dial of the Hydrosphere is a reminder of the ocean depths with its sunburst finish that reproduces the variations of light in the water.
The case is distinguished on this edition by the discreet mention and signature of Greg Lecoeur at 3:30. In addition, the unidirectional rotating ceramic bezel is engraved with graduations for the retrograde minute display.
This eponymous limited series retraces the diver’s photographic art in favor of the preservation of the fauna and flora of the oceans. The only true retrograde diver’s watch on the market, mounted on a Nato or rubber strap. This dive watch is also characterized by the presence of a screw-in crown sheathed in rubber, a helium valve located in the case middle at 9 o’clock, not to mention a watch movement indicator that is essential to the diver since it allows him to ensure that his watch has not stopped. Finally, the luminescence of the RESERVOIR watch is not limited to its power indicator, it is present in an efficient way on the different graduations of the rotating bezel, the hand but also on the indexes of the dial.
