The values conveyed by the brand correspond well to those of IDEC SPORT and our common passion for motorsport”. François MOREAU, Founder and CEO of RESERVOIR: “I am particularly proud to see RESERVOIR become the watchmaking partner of the formidable IDEC SPORT team whose teams carry values very similar to ours: bold, authenticity, determination, taste for performance and overtaking. We also share a deep passion for motorsport, and I am therefore very happy to develop this collaboration with the IDEC group”.

Each timepiece is certified to have been on-board in the IDEC Sport car as part of the 2020 24 Hours of Le Mans race. Each case will thus have experienced the race in a unique way, symbolizing the determination and daring of IDEC SPORT teams like that of RESERVOIR, to compete during this legendary race.
The 24 customers who will take possession of their watches from October 2020 will receive an exceptional invitation to attend the 24 Heures du Mans, 2021 edition, and meet the IDEC SPORT team in action in the paddocks, as well as an exclusive meeting with RESERVOIR’s entrepreneurial team.
Legendary car races are the essence of GT Tour watches. Racing cars, competition, exhilaration of speed, the senses are on constant alert. With determination, the GT Tour is a symbol of performance and courage.
