Since its presentation in 2014 (or even in 2010 in the event that you take a gander at the absolute initial Zero Series , which was the archetype of this model), the Ressence Type 1 has never stopped to advance. The first presentation has been returned to in a few tones/completes, and the crownless case has even changed shape in the Squared rendition, to set up itself as the ‘Air-Filled’ assortment (standing out from the oil-filled watches). Being quick forward scholars (simply take a gander at Type 2 to comprehend), Ressence thought the time had come to give its significant watch a dash of innovation. Meet the new Type 1 Slim.
One thing is ensured at Ressence: vintage, retro, praise or legacy are words that don’t shape part of the company’s jargon. Present day, cutting edge or advanced are, then again, catchphrases at Ressence. Don’t think this implies just electronic and battery-fueled watches. No! Being present day and creative for Ressence implies combining the most amazing aspect what designing can offer with the excellence of mechanics – this was the entire thought behind the super inventive half and half Ressence Type 2 .
The Ressence Type 1 is presently grounded as the mark model of the brand – and its most open piece as well. In spite of the fact that it very well may be the lead, it’s difficult to characterize this watch as a ‘classic’, however in comparison to the new Type 5 or Type 2, it appears to be marginally more ‘traditional’ with its wire drags and rock molded case. For this very explanation, the group at Ressence is redesigning its model with another, modernized, slimmed-down case – to become the Type 1 Slim.
From a rock molded case with welded hauls measuring 42mm in width and 13mm thick, the new 42mm Ressence Type 1 Slim has trimmed down its waistline to 11mm. Indeed, even the shape has been altogether refreshed, with an undauntedly more present day, ovoid-formed case with what gives off an impression of being a coordinated tie. The drags and case are processed in one activity from a similar square of evaluation 5 titanium. In that viewpoint, it is enlivened by the new Type 2. This new shape doesn’t change the idea however gives the watch more consistency with the remainder of the collection.
How was it conceivable to lose 2mm on the off chance that tallness? In the first place, because of the new caseback and winding/setting framework. Rather than the turning sapphire gem ( see here ), Ressence has now introduced a similar gadget found on the Type 1 Squared , implying that the watch has no crown and the winding and setting system are simply the caseback. Second, the base development has been transformed from an ETA 2824/2 to an ETA 2892/A, which is somewhat slimmer as well (3.60mm versus 4.60mm). Out and out, Ressence Type 1 has lost 2mm.
What doesn’t change is the showcase, which comprises in an enormous moment circle (initiated with the moment hub of the ETA development) and three satellites for the hours, the seconds and the day of the week. This framework named ROCS (Ressence Orbital Convex System) delivers an always changing dial as the satellites orbit one another. Data is shown on a solitary surface with no hands. Composed of 107 sections, the cog wheels in the ROCS compute the seconds, hours and day, requiring just the moment as a source of perspective from the movement.
First introduced in dark (the present Type 1B), the Ressence Type 1 Slim will likewise be accessible in three other editions: Type 1W (white dial), Type 1N (night-blue dial) and Type 1RS (silver dial). The cost will be CHF 16,800 (charges barred). More subtleties at ressencewatches.com .
