Back in August, we introduced you to a brand that was new to us, Reservoir. I mean, they’re not a new brand, per se, as they’ve been making watches for a bit, and they just recently released another new model – the Reservoir Kanister.
They’re keeping with the same concept of a single-hand, retrograde minutes display and jumping hour. And hey, if the recipe works, why change it up? Well, they have changed things up a bit here, and that’s noticeable in some of the dial design elements, and the colors involved. For the Reservoir Kanister, they’ve drawn inspiration from the 356 Speedster, an iconic car design in its own right. Here, it’s specifically the speedometer that gives us the look of the watch.
At a high-level, for this watch, we’d suggest you read our prior article, as some of the broad strokes painted there will continue on into this model, in terms of functionality and practical usage. Again, the big changes here are in the dial look and colors involved. You can pick up the Reservoir Kanister with a leather strap and NATO for $4,150, or in a kit that has a total of four leather straps for $4,350. You can check it all out over at reservoir-watch.com

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
