Ressence Type 1 W Titanium And Ostrich Watch
Founder of Ressence Mr Benoît Mintiens says of the ‘Type 1 W’, “I want the watch to be de-materialised, to express time in its purest possible way”. As such, the design has no crown, with the winding and setting mechanism being the back of the casing. This allows for better ergonomics and a cleaner aesthetic. Another way it differs from a standard timepiece is in its revolutionary lack of hands. The time and date is displayed using a patented, 107-part ‘ROCS’, Ressence Orbital Convex System, where sub-discs reading the hours, seconds and days of the week revolve constantly. Not only is this feature highly accurate, it also aids legibility and means the face is not set in a fixed position for a unique look.
