We recently had the opportunity to chat with Mr. Moreau about the brand’s 2018 novelties. The featured pieces being the GT Tour and LONGBRIDGE models.

For those unfamiliar with Reservoir, the brand has made a name for themselves with their instrument panel inspired timepieces with retrograde minute and jumping hour hands.

New Novelties

As you’ll see in the video, for 2018, RESERVOIR has introduced a GT Tour timepiece that takes inspiration from the golden days of gentlemen racing. Available in three versions, the GT Tour Carbon, GT Tour, and GT Tour 371 SE. These black dialed RESERVOIRs all come with a reddish orange hand providing maximum visibility when you’re driving that vintage Porsche during your summer jaunt in St. Moritz.

Next up, the Longbridge, is a homage to the days of classic British racing. The British Racing Green dial variant may be the standout of the collection. Modern, yet with a delightful twist to the past. Gray and cream color dial variants are also available.

How it works

You’ll notice that Reservoir watches aren’t your typical three-hand timepiece. They feature a single hand that passes through the minutes (or sometimes hours) and or jumps after it’s predetermined time has passed. While this retrograde minute and hour function is not unique to RESERVOIR, it’s certainly what the brand is known for.

Each RESERVOIR watch utilizes the ETA 2824-2 movement beating at 28,800 vph. A stable workhorse with the added complication to display time via retrograde.


We’ll let Reservoir CEO & Founder François Moreau explain more.
