Bold, Determined, Authentic

These instruments were painstakingly built by craftsmen who were fired with enthusiasm for measurement and time. The RESERVOIR is Swiss Made, and echoes an era in which precision instruments were at the service of mankind.

 

A time when the pulse quickened and adrenaline coursed through your veins as you embarked upon voyages that demanded courage and high performance. The RESERVOIR on your wrist tells these stories: stories that embody fundamental truths that stir the spirit, characterised by an intensity of feeling and self-affirmation. The single hand of the RESERVOIR dial jumps back every 60 minutes, mirroring the significance of an hour having passed, and reaching out to invite you to seize the opportunities presented by the hour still to come. The RESERVOIR is an audacious timepiece with a radical time display. It is innovative for the way each wearer gets to experience every minute precisely and accurately. The Luxury of Intensity: when everything is possible.

Before the creation…

There is the idea.

To go beyond limits, to set new heights and to accomplish real achievements, like all those legendary pilots who inspired RESERVOIR. Achievements made possible thanks to the incredible energy of those pilots, like the fuel symbolized by the gauge and the jerrican.

To embody its values in the material, RESERVOIR borrows from gas jerrycans the shape engraved on their side to create the brand’s emblem. Born in the 30s, those petrol tanks were precious tools, especially during war for soldiers and their jeeps as well as pilots ready to take off to fight. They are a true allegory for the brand; they recall that for any action, energy is essential.

THE SWISS WATCH INDUSTRY IN THE FRENCH

French watchmaking house, RESERVOIR was born from a man’s passion for measurement instruments of days gone by, which pace time, count revolutions or enumerate miles.

The house is settled in Paris, the capital of luxury and creativity, where she gives life to its watch collections inspired from objects of the past’s functionality and aestheticism. RESERVOIR are handmade in Switzerland at La Chaux-deFonds, in compliance with traditional craftsmanship and “Swiss made” label.

Worlds
of inspiration

RESERVOIR takes its inspiration from the universes that have marked the history of mankind from the 19th Century to the present time.

The GT Tour was born in the world of the car and the car race – symbols of endurance and high performance.

The SUPERCHARGED is the natural extension of the streamlined look and sophisticated engine power of those racing cars of old.

Military aviation and its icons – including both the planes that achieved such cult status and the design of the aviation instruments – provide an inexhaustible source of inspiration for the AIRFIGHT range.

Submarines as emblems of power confined to unfathomable depths are a natural link to the TIEFENMESSER.

RESERVOIR collections are authentic emblems, forging connections in the imagination to days gone by through the timepieces’ lines, their materials and their unique designs.

A RADICAL WAY TO TELL THE TIME

RESERVOIR timepieces take on the ultra-functional style of instrument counters, creating an audacious time display.

The retrograde minute and jumping hour hand act as substitutes for the more usual three hands on Swiss watches.
RESERVOIR timepieces are innovative for the radical way the time is displayed, which is achieved by drawing on two watchmaking complications combined with the power reserve – a testament to mechanical energy and pent-up power. The retrograde minute at 240° recalls the rev counters, the manometers and the altimeters. The jumping hour in the aperture recalls the kilometre counters, and the power reserve display echoes the fuel and oil gauges.

Precision, exactitude and reliability: this is all about measuring time, delivering performance and assessing risk factors.

Swiss made label

The RESERVOIR collection is a testament to the unique body of watchmaking knowledge that abides by the most stringent professional standards.

Qualified watchmakers design, assemble and check the meticulously calibrated settings of RESERVOIR watches in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland. The fact that the checks are so thorough, and that such attention is devoted to every minor detail, means that RESERVOIR is truly proud to display the SWISS MADE label: an emblem of high quality watchmaking achieved through a patented proprietary module comprising 124 components.

All models are granted with an international warranty of 2 years.

Movement

 

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 124-components proprietary watchmaking module has, to this end, been specially drawn up and patented. The module is powered by an ETA 2824-2 movement, widely acclaimed for its reliability and precision, oscillating at 28,800 alt./h.

All RESERVOIR watches feature a retrograde minute hand, a jumping hour and a 37-hours power reserve.

The Community

RESERVOIR is a testament to authentic history, and offers vintage enthusiasts and fine watch collectors the chance to bring to life the art of fine living, harking back to an era rich with cult items in which everyone can propel themselves into the universes of the automobile, aeronautics and the marine environment. The functional design, elegant style and original display mode of RESERVOIR timepieces will appeal to anyone craving luxury, where an object embodies the passion and enthusiasm so dear to those who seek to assert themselves and to live every moment meaningfully, experiencing time for the adventure that it really is.
