Ressence Type 1 Slim DX2 Limited Edition In collaboration with Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons

Ressence, in close collaboration with Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons, the UAE’s leading retailer of luxury watches and jewellery, presents the Type 1 Slim DX2 – a limited edition of the Type 1 Slim.

Celebrating the United Arab Emirates 50th year anniversary, this limited edition marks the second collaboration between Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons and Ressence.

Limited to 25 pieces and following in the footsteps of the Type 1 Squared DXB, the Type 1 Slim DX2 draws inspiration from Arabic geometric patterns. This original multi-faceted design creates a unique play of light reflections and depths.

Delicately engraved with polishing diamond burs, the watch sparkles like a diamond would. The dial’s sand colour further anchors the watch in the Arabic world.

The watch remains 100% faithful to the functions and movement of the Type 1 Slim. It differs distinctly from the collection in its design. Its case is in polished Grade 5 titanium.

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.

The hands and indexes are white and filled with Superluminova punctuating a decidedly traditional but fresh look. The Type 1 Slim DX2 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.
