Reservoir drives Longbridge upmarket with use of rose gold and palladium cases

Reservoir, one of the breakthrough stars of last year’s Baselworld, is expanding its Longbridge family of watches with a rose gold version and a night sky blue model in a palladium case.

The French watchmaker, which is represented by Beaugeste Luxury in the United States, specializes in watches designed to look like measuring instruments.

In the case of the Longbridge collection, they borrow their look from the dashboard speedometer of a 1960s Mini made in Britain at Birmingham’s Longbridge plant.

The time is displayed using a large retrograde minute hand and a jumping hour at 6 o’clock.

The 41.5mm watches house modified and patented self-winding mechanical movements based on the ETA 2824-2.

The Longbridge Club Rose Gold edition is priced at €14,800 while the blue-dialed Longbridge Nightfall costs €16,300. Original steel models sell for €3,750.
