RESERVOIR - AIRFIGHT PROPELLER
Inspired by aviation instruments, the AIRFIGHT centres on its black colour and aeronautics markings. It signals instantly that it is a instrument of measurement and precision. The watch is a cockpit gauge on your wrist. This model is distinguished by the finish of the index markings in white stripes, and by its white-stitched canvas fabric straps.
Like all RESERVOIR watches, the AIRFIGHT feature a retrograde minute hand, a jumping hour and a 34-hour power reserve “fuel gauge”: 3 watchmaking complications woven into a styling inspired by a cockpit’s altimeter.
AN INNOVATIVE WAY TO TELL TIME: THE RESERVOIR SIGNATURE
The retrograde minute and jumping hour hand act as substitutes for the more usual three hands on Swiss watches.
RESERVOIR timepieces are innovative for the radical way the time is displayed, which is achieved by drawing on two watchmaking complications combined with the power reserve – a testament to mechanical energy and pent-up power. The retrograde minute at 240° recalls the altimeter counters. The jumping hour in the aperture recalls the kilometre counters, and the power reserve display echoes the fuel and oil gauges.
Precision, exactitude and reliability: this is all about measuring time and delivering 34 hours of non-stop performance, thanks to the automatic mechanical movement.
In order to fine-tune the precision mechanism so that the three complications on the timepieces can be displayed, RESERVOIR has joined forces with one of the best-known Swiss watchmakers, specialized in designing high complication movements.
A 97-part proprietary watchmaking module has, to this end, been specially drawn up and patented. The module is powered by the ETA 2824-2 movement, widely acclaimed for its reliability and precision, oscillating at 28800/h – and a guarantee of reliability.
RESERVOIR WATCHES ARE 100% PROUDLY SWISS MADE
