The GT Tour adopts the codes of the ‘Classic’ car race. There are two dominant colours: the black dial and the orange minute hand. This version of the GT Tour features a black PVD-treated case with a red-sttiched perforated black leather strap.
Like all RESERVOIR watches, the GT Tour feature a retrograde minute hand, a jumping hour and a 34-hour power reserve “fuel gauge”: 3 watchmaking complications woven into a minimalist contemporary styling, inspired by the tachymeters of the most powerful sports cars.
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 rev 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.
