Reservoir drives Longbridge upmarket with use of rose gold and palladium cases

reservoir-watch-longbridge

Reservoir, one of the breakthrough stars of last year’s Baselworld, is expanding its Longbridge family of watches with a rose gold version and a night sky blue model in a palladium case.

The French watchmaker specialises in watches designed to look like measuring instruments. In the case of the Longbridge collection, they borrow their look from the dashboard speedometer of a 1960s Mini made at Birmingham’s Longbridge plant.

The time is displayed using a large retrograde minute hand and a jumping hour at 6 o’clock.

The 41.5mm watches house modified and patented self-winding mechanical movements based on the ETA 2824-2.

The Longbridge Club Rose Gold edition is priced at €14,800 while the blue-dialed Longbridge Nightfall costs €16,300. Original steel models sell for €3,750.
