Ressence Type 1DXB – Limited Edition Watch Created in Collaboration with Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons, UAE

In close collaboration with Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons, the UAE’s leading retailer of luxury watches and jewellery, Ressence announces the release of the Type 1 DXB – a limited edition of the Type 1 Squared.

Limited to 19 pieces, Type 1DXB draws inspiration from Arabic geometric patterns, believed to unveil the underlying reality to the viewer. This traditional design composes with natural light and creates unique shadow play. It is an Arabic take on skeleton dials. The watch remains 100% faithful to the functions and movement of its parent, the Type 1 Squared.

It differs distinctly from the collection both in its design and in its material though. Unlike the other Type 1 Squared the case is not made of stainless steel. Its case is in polished Grade 5 titanium, with a satin finish back.

The Ressence Orbital Convex System (ROCS), unique in-house (and patented) module featuring ever-changing discs that continually orbits around one another, benefits from another design but also a different surface treatment.

The 9 components that make up the dial are finished in sand color PVD (physical vapor deposition). The hands and indexes are white and filled with Superluminova punctuating a decidedly traditional but fresh look.

The Type 1DXB 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. Beyond a refined and authentic design, the origin of the Type 1DXB is that of a successful partnership between Ressence and Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons.
