Ressence Type 8

Ressence presents Type 8, a hyper-modern timepiece equipped with the brand’s proprietary ROCS display. This new creation will be unveiled at Watches & Wonders in Geneva (March 30th to April 5th 2022).

Representing the sixth distinct family of watches from Ressence, the Type 8 has been designed with the same functional relevance that defines all watches of the brand. This latest model combines clarity, simplicity and ergonomics.

The Type 8 has a sleek, light-weight case made of grade 5 titanium. With the strap included, the watch weighs just 42 grams. The tapered case has a sandwich-style construction with a two-tone finish, showcasing both polished and satin finishing textures. The case has no apparent lugs; instead the overall effect is of one integrated case volume, out of which the strap appears to grow invisibly.

The watch indicates only the hours and minutes. Symbolizing the epitome of simplicity, the domed cobalt blue dial features no texts or numbers. Simple white baton markers present the time with perfect clarity from any angle thanks to the revolutionary Ressence Orbital Convex System (ROCS) display, whereby the dial itself comprises rotating discs set into the same plane. The hands and the hour and minute scales are picked out in blue SuperLuminova for low-light legibility.

The Type 8 will be available worldwide from March 30th 2022 via Ressence’s official retailer network. Its retail price is CHF 12,500.
