Reservoir X Popeye Cricket Watch: The Venn diagram of watch lovers you’d be excused if you didn’t expect there to be an overlap of Swiss micro-brand fans with Popeye lovers and Cricketeers. But here we are.
Cricket World Cup
This new watch features a jaunty Popeye grabbing his bat on a green cricket pitch. The watch uses a retrograde movement to swing Popeye’s hand back and forth.
The watch uses an interesting tech to power Popeye’s appendage from 1 to 60 and a jump hour window to show the current hour. The watch itself is aimed at the Indian market in honor of the Cricket World Cup. From the release:
Powered by the caliber RSV-240, a proprietary patented three-complication module coupled to a manufacture movement (LJP-G100 base), combining retrograde minute, jumping hour and a 56-Hour power reserve (not seen on the dial).
