Beautifully styled to capture the essence of vintage aircraft cockpit instruments, the Reservoir Black Sparrow Black & Steel watch also pays tribute to the heroic pilot Eugene Bullard, one of the first African American WW1 combat pilots. This superb edition features a proprietary retrograde minutes together with a jumping hour complication, that enables intuitive reading of the time. Brimming with character and distinctive in arrangement, this exciting new model is powered by a precision self-winding Swiss mechanical movement endowed with the company’s own patented complication module.

Inspired by instrument dials and gauges from the past, Reservoir watches blend French design with innovative Swiss watchmaking. An excellent find for those with and appreciation for a unique blend of contemporary and vintage styling, Reservoir watches feature retrograde minutes and jump-hour displays enabled by their own patented proprietary 113 piece module.

Sized at 42mm across the case is manufactured from 316L stainless steel, with a satin finish. Executed in the style of a classic pilot’s watch, it has a fluted bezel, an onion shaped crown and generous loop-style lugs. With a matte black finish, the dial is characterised by authentic aeronautic nuances, including an arc-shaped traditional minutes track and generous arabic numerals which are executed with a shadow effect. From its centre, the retrograde minutes hand has a shapely form, finishing with a needle-like tip, while its counterweight gives it further presence. As it reaches out to its scale, it flicks back to zero when it reaches the “60”, while at the same time, positioned within its own framed aperture, the hour numerals advances instantly.

A sapphire crystal centre in the caseback displays the RSV-240 automatic movement, which is based on the superb LJP-G100 by La Joux-Perret. Beating at 28’880 vib/h, the self-winding movement has a power reserve of 56 hours.

The Reservoir Black Sparrow Black & Steel watch comes presented on a black leather strap with white stitching secured with a steel pin buckle and with an additional NATO strap supplied.
