We have been quite taken by the Reservoir’s car inspired interpretations since we first encountered the brand. The designs have remained fresh to our eyes. This novelty is based on their base collection with inspirations taken from automobiles, aviation and marine. So far like most other watch brands.
But what sets Reservoir apart is the watches are based on a design with retrograde minutes, jumping digital hour display and a power reserve. Quite interesting. See our review of the GT Tour Blue Edition Racing Hearts here. And their collaboration piece with Label Noir to execute the quirky Popeye here.
The novelty is presented as two variants. The reference which piqued our interest is the one which is a look alike to the 365’s tachymeter. Including the retro look with the colour palate which is very similar. The second model is a more generic plain white dial. The movement remains the same RSV-240 which is a modified ETA2824-2 movement. The self-winding movement features additional modules for the brand to incorporate three additional complications, namely the retrograde minutes, jumping hour, and power reserve indicator. Notably, there are 124 components in the patented proprietary module.
The Kanister collection is inspired by the RPM counter of the legendary 356 Speedster car. The Kanister 316 variant takes on a new look with its brushed steel case mounted on a vintage five-link bracelet. The combination of modernity and the retro aspect creates an obvious harmony. The pastel green minute indexes, a red area, a black or silver dial and a white hand housed in a 316L stainless steel case with brushed finish, mounted on a stainless steel bracelet elegantly sign the breathtaking design of this model.
The collection is powered by the caliber RSV-240, a proprietary patented three-complication module coupled to a manufacture movement (LJP-G100 base), combining retrograde minute, jumping hour and a 56-hour power reserve. Awarded by a Red Dot for Product Design in 2022, the collection is delivered in a prestigious wooden box with an additional black leather or taupe ostrich strap.
