Ressence: Type 1 “Squared”3 February 2017
Less “dematerialised” than the other models in the collection, the TYPE 1 subtly reintroduces a few classic watch codes for a more assertive wrist presence. Thinner and slightly smaller than the other RESSENCE watches, this new Dress Watch plays the mix with proposals of exclusive straps for both men and women.
While remaining faithful to the DNA of RESSENCE, the TYPE 1 differs distinctly from the rest of the collection both in its design and in its material. Borne from the intersection of 6 spheres, it has a cushion shape case. It is also distinguished by its integrated lugs and an interchangeable bracelet system inherited from the TYPE 3.
Unlike the other RESSENCE watches, the TYPE 1 is not made of Grade 5 Titanium. Its case is in polished stainless steel, with a satin finish back. This case is thinner, due to the absence of the sapphire case back acting as a crown. Instead, there is a small retractable lever, the handling of which adds a new visual and physical effect. When setting the time, the rotation of the lever corresponds exactly to the movement of the discs on the dial in a ratio of 1 to 1. An up-to-date reminder of the key once used to wind clocks, watches and mechanical toys.
Finally, the in-house complication ROCS 1 has been updated with a user-friendly quick day setting. This technical evolution is also available on the original TYPE 1 models.
The RESSENCE TYPE 1 is available in 4 dial versions: Silver, Ruthenium, Night Blue and Champagne. It is produced in an unlimited but numbered edition. (Price €.18.000)
