RESERVOIR - TIEFENMESSER STEEL
The TIEFENMESSER watch takes its inspiration from WWI submarine equipment, where blued steel and bronze are omnipresent: a sign of its uniqueness. This timepiece features a submarine blue needle, a single aperture for the hour display, and is watertight to 50 meters. This version has a steel case.
Like all RESERVOIR watches, the TIEFENMESSER feature a retrograde minute hand, a jumping hour and a 34-hour power reserve “fuel gauge”: 3 watchmaking complications taken straight from a WWI submarine depth gauge.
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 nautical miles 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
