Celebrating ten years of life, today Ressence presents the fourth and last piece in its Collection X. Testing the conventional idea of showing time with hands, Ressence has made another visual language for telling the time. Prestigious for its unmistakable ‘past hands’ presentation, Ressence watches tell the time with rotating sub-dials controlled by the brand’s licensed Orbital Convex System (ROCS). Utilizing exceptionally realistic, rotating sub-dials, time in a real sense circles around the dial like planets circling the Sun. Nothing is static; everything is in steady movement, similar to time itself. The last 10th anniversary model depends on the Type 1 Squared, the littlest of the family and the lone model with a more customary pad formed case. Addressing time in a considerably more instinctive manner, the Ressence Type 1 Squared X Time by Color utilizes various tones to demonstrate various minutes in a day.
The X Quartet
All the watches in the Collection X group of four component an uncommon image at 10 o’clock on the dial, a combination of a Latin X and an hourglass, and all are restricted to 40 pieces. The principal watch in the celebratory Collection X was the Type 1 Slim X . With an alluring olive green dial, the 42mm case is 2mm slimmer than the standard Type 1 gratitude to its fixed caseback with a retractable key. The second watch for Collection X was the Type 5X , a hustling propelled coordinated effort with Automobili Amos. The third piece, Type 3X , was additionally the product of a coordinated effort with visual creator Stefan Sagmeister.
This last anniversary piece not just uses movement to catch the inexorable progression of time yet additionally utilizes shading to address various minutes in a day. As per an examination led by Professor Christopher Harvey of the division of neuroscience at Harvard, the manner in which Ressence addresses time is an undeniably more common and natural method of catching the genuine element of time. Another finish of his investigation was that tones are the most effortless and quickest path for our mind to decide a second in time. Light, or the absence of light, manages our organic clock.
Time by Colour
Putting hypothesis into training, Ressence has taken Prof. Harvey’s discoveries and joined 48 shaded ceramic balls to show the approximate time initially. Four distinctive shaded balls – yellow, dark, blue and dark – set on a pivoting sub-dial (typically saved for the little seconds) are utilized to demonstrate the various snapshots of a day. The morning hours, beginning at 6 am, are addressed by yellow dots (like the sun rising) while the night hours, beginning at 6 pm, are blue. Despite the fact that there are four tones, you will just at any point see three tones addressed at any one time on the dial.
Case and dial
This anniversary release depends on the Type 1 Squared presented by the brand in 2017. The principle contrast between the Squared and other Ressence watches is the presence of a case. Not that different models don’t have cases, but rather they are not a conspicuous component of the watch. Albeit the Type 1 Squared depends on the Orbital Convex showcase framework, it has a 41mm pad formed case with a shut caseback and a decreased tallness of 11mm. (The Type I Squared was the littlest and most slender watch at Ressence up until the presence of the Type 1 Slim model.)
For the first time in quite a while short life expectancy, the Type 1 Squared comes in a splendidly cleaned titanium case (for the most part it is made of steel) and highlights the appealing olive green dial of the other anniversary watches. The design of the dial is like a controller clock with the minutes put on the outskirts and the hours consigned to a sub-dial. The sub-dials relating to the ‘time by shading’ sign and the times of the week are more modest than the circle for the hours. The olive green territories of the dial are brushed concentrically, the numerals and hands are selected in white, and there are markings in a lighter green tone and yellow.
Like all Ressence watches, the dial is in consistent movement because of the protected ROCS driven incrementally axle. With no crown to intrude on the smooth adjusted forms of the case, there is a retractable switch on the caseback to wind the development and change the settings. Another appealing element is the liberal measure of Super-LumiNova applied to each sign on the dial.
Customised 2892 calibre
The protected ROCS 1 module is driven incrementally axle of a redid programmed ETA 2892/A base type. Beating at 28,800vph, the hours, minutes, days of the week and ‘time by shading’ will continue to turn for 36 hours.
