Unveiled during the Watches & Wonders 2023 event in Geneva, the new Ressence TYPE 1° Round keeps alive the Belgium based luxury watch brand’s minimalistic incarnation of time. As with all Ressence watches, it features revolving discs that display time in a bi-dimensional format with truly ergonomic design.
Its design reaffirms the beauty of simple essential and sensual shapes. The sapphire crystal and case seamlessly merge in a simple minimalistic and pure radius.
The iconic pebble design of the TYPE 3 meets the sleek design of the TYPE 1 and featuring its ROCS 1 module. This has improved the tactile quality, allowing the watch to gently blend with any wrist and style.
Beyond these case design improvements, the TYPE 1° Round introduces new details that make a big difference.
With this new timepiece, Ressence has also introduced a new colour: Night Blue. This new dark and vivid colour adds more depth to the TYPE 1° Round’s time displaying. The sun rayed silver metallic discs emphasize the movement of the dial by provoking mesmerizing reflexions as time goes by.
Beyond its new colour, the TYPE 1° Round dial has been graphically simplified with indexes every 10 minutes and a weekday dial that subtly unites the 2 non-working days of the week with a touch of colour. The Second and Weekday hands are larger for an improved reading.
As with all Ressence watches, this model simultaneously winds its movement when setting the time. This is as intuitive as moving the hands on an old wall clock. The absence of a crown makes the watch comfortable for wearing on the right or left hand.
The Ressence TYPE 1° Round is available in two finishes: Black and Night Blue.
Model: Ressence TYPE 1° Round N (Night Blue) or TYPE 1° Round B (Black)
