Reservoir races towards Baselworld with sports car-inspired timepieces

Reservoir has unveiled its pre-Baselworld pieces; the GT Tour and Supercharged watches that mimick the speedometer in a sports car.

The Supercharged line, coming in either a black or white dial, is a 43mm piece housing an ETA 2824-2 movement, which accounts for the retrograde minute display across the top portion of the dial, the digital jumping hours, the power reserve indication and 34 hours of autonomy.

Staying true to its automotive inspiration, the dial uses indicators for the minutes that mimic a speedometer, spanning 00 to 60; the white or black dial turns red at the points from the 50 minute to the 60. The watch’s jumping hour is also placed off centre at the 6 o’clock, again similar to a display and style of a car. The power reserve indicator sits directly below the jumping hour window.

The single-handed Supercharged in black or white comes with a black leather strap, a price tag of €3,750 and a summer 2018 release date.

The GT Tour is seen as a more minimalist option in the collection. The GT Tour Carbon boasts a matte black dial of which has a similar layout to the Supercharged, however the minute indicators are embossed and larger, utilising fewer numbers and seeming more minimalist.

The watch uses the same movement also; it does however use a sportier looking strap and carbon fibre for its casing and crown, along with red accents on the dial and red stitching.

The carbon-clad version is limited to 200 pieces and retails for €5,600.
