Reservoir adds a new proprietary movement and a new silver-colored dial to its retro-styled Kanister jumping hour collection. The new movement, RSV-240, is made in association with long-time partner Telos, a Swiss motor manufacturer specializing in the tailor-made manufacture of high-end mechanical movements.
The new RSV-240 is a patented proprietary module of three complications (retrograde minute, jumping hour, 56-hour power reserve) with a manufacture automatic movement using a La Joux-Perret P-G100 base.
The new caliber updates the use of the Telos-made module (built on an ETA base) that Reservoir has long used to power its jumping hour watches. Reservoir introduces the new caliber in this Kanister Silver model and plans to add the movement to all its watches in the future.
With a dial designed to echo the RPM display of a 356 Speedster from the 1950s, the 41.5mm Reservoir Kanister Silver features silver-colored dial and indicators that display retrograde minutes teamed with a jumping hour aperture at 6 o’clock. Along the lower section of the dial you’ll see the automotive-themed power reserve display.
