Ressence Type 1 Slim X 10th Anniversary TYPE 1SLIM X$21,500.00
Ressence was born in 2010 with a clear purpose in mind: improving the function of the mechanical watch in the 21st century context. After refining legibility, daily wearability and overall intuitiveness, the innovative company’s next pursuit is dedicated to being more conscious of the passage of time.
Ressence wants us to make better use of our time by focusing on our relation to it. This purposeful ambition starts now with the new Type 1 Slim X, a limited-edition piece marking its 10th anniversary.
Objects primarily designed as tools, such as watches, must evolve with their time. Featuring the emblematic Ressence ever-changing dial, the Type 1 Slim X’s discs have been given a subtle, but focussed handmade makeover.
The new design is, as always with Ressence, driven by functionality. It all starts with the Ressence Orbital Convex System (ROCS), the in-house developed (and patented) horological unit, which features discs that continually orbit around one another. On the Type 1 Slim X, when the watch indicates midnight or midday, the dark olive-green dial is equally divided into two separate finishes; matte on one half and circular on the other half. In a playful way, the different finishes reinterpret the colour as the light hits the surface.
On the minute and the hour discs, the two finishes are a graphical extension of the hands. Once in motion, magic takes on new meaning. At a glance, you can literally observe the passage of time. It is meant as a modern and wearable interpretation of an hourglass.
The watch is also organic in its form, with tactile curves and domed sapphire glass extending to the very edge of the case, making the watch more sapphire than metal.
The Type 1 Slim X is manually set via a lever on its case back. The watch has no crown, the winding and setting mechanism being the case-back itself, for better ergonomics and allowing a left-right fit.
Intuitive in viewing and motion, understated in its aesthetics, the Type 1 Slim X is a playful and relevant companion that reminds us to conscious that every minute counts.
