Ressence Type 1 Squared X 10th Anniversary TYPE 1? X$23,500.00
Ressence was born in 2010 with a clear purpose: 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 continues now with the new Type 1 Squared X, a limited-edition focused on the speed of reading.
Form Follows Nature.
The new patented system, a world premiere, is Ressence’s first attempt to make those conclusions a reality. It is not about representing time in the most precise way but rather in the most efficient way. Instead of focussing on precision, Ressence’s new complication is about the speed and ease of reading.
The Time by colour system on the Type 1 Squared X represents a moment in a day by a mix of colours.
The dedicated sub dial contains 48 coloured ceramic micro-balls (0,9mm of diameter) from 4 different colours (yellow, grey, blue and black) but only shows a maximum of 3 colours at once.
Each moment in time has a unique mix of colours. In the morning (starting at 6am), the yellow is dominating while in the evening (starting at 6pm) it is blue that prevails.
The Type 1 Squared X rests on the Ressence Orbital Convex System (ROCS), the in-house developed (and patented) horological unit, which features discs that continually orbit around one another. The dial is dark olive-green with a hint of light green and yellow.
It features a cushion shape case in grade 5 titanium (a first for a Type 1 Squared) that subtly plays with a few classic watch codes for a more assertive wrist presence. The Type 1 Squared 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.
A new colourful and natural ritual on your wrist.
The Type 1 Squared X works with nature, not against it.
