Reservoir has launched its new Hydrosphere Collection, inspired by scuba diving pressure gauges.
The Hydrosphere timepieces resemble scuba diving pressure gauges, the first survival instruments for divers. Unique with the single needle on the dial, the timepiece also features a unidirectional, rotating bezel with a helium valve and power reserve indicator.
According to the group, its timepieces and movements are innovative for the “radical way the time is displayed”, which is achieved by drawing on three horological complications.
Additionally, the retrograde minute at 240° recalls the R.P.M. counters, the manometers and the depth gauges that divers use, and the jumping hour also represents mileage meters and the power reserve display echoes the fuel and oil gauges.
A statement by Reservoir read: “The patented mechanical movement features an ETA2824 made of 124 components (the collaboration of the patented movement is by the same company who created the Opus 14). Precision, exactitude and reliability: this is all about measuring time, delivering performance and assessing risk factors.”
The collection will be available from August, RRP £3,900.
