THE AUTOMOBILE HERITAGE
SUPERCHARGED : 1930-1960
RESERVOIR takes its inspiration from the universes that have marked the history of mankind from the 19th Century to the present time. The SUPERCHARGED is the natural continuation of the streamlined look and sophisticated engine power of those racing cars of old.
1930-1960: On the horizon of the glorious English landscape appears an elegant gentleman at the wheel of a legendary convertible. The cavernous, throaty sound of the iconic engine is muffled by the foggy air, and the only thing that can be seen is the reflection of a ray of light on the chromium. The minute’s tick by, and then before your very eyes there appears a vision of exquisitely crafted leather and aluminium. With the wrist on your watch, the SUPERCHARGED invites you to get behind the steering wheel, tinker with the old-fashioned dials and give the old girl a good run, with the passion of the true enthusiast.
In order to fine-tune the precision mechanism so that the three complications on the timepieces can be displayed, RESERVOIR has joined forces with one of the best-known Swiss watchmakers, specialized in designing high complication movements. A 97-part proprietary watchmaking module has, to this end, been specially drawn up and patented. The module is powered by the ETA 2824-2 movement, widely acclaimed for its reliability and precision, oscillating at 28800/h. All RESERVOIR watches feature a retrograde minute hand, a jumping hour and a 34-hour power reserve.
THE SWISS MADE LABEL
Qualified watchmakers design, assemble and check the meticulously calibrated settings of RESERVOIR watches in Switzerland, and the fact that the checks are so thorough, and that such attention is devoted to every minor detail, means that RESERVOIR Watch timepieces are truly proud to display their SWISS MADE label: an emblem of high-quality watchmaking achieved through a patented proprietary module comprising 97 components.
