Since its presentation in 2014 (or even in 2010 on the off chance 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 build up itself as the ‘Air-Filled’ assortment (diverging from the oil-filled watches). Being quick forward masterminds (simply take a gander at Type 2 to comprehend), Ressence thought the time had come to give its meaningful watch a dash of advancement. Meet the new Type 1 Slim.
One thing is ensured at Ressence: vintage, retro, tribute or legacy are words that don’t frame part of the company’s jargon. Present day, vanguard or advanced are, then again, watchwords at Ressence. Don’t think this implies just electronic and battery-fueled watches. No! Being present day and imaginative 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 breed Ressence Type 2 .
The Ressence Type 1 is presently grounded as the mark model of the brand – and its most available piece as well. In spite of the fact that it very well may be the leader, it’s difficult to characterize this watch as a ‘classic’, yet in comparison to the new Type 5 or Type 2, it appears to be marginally more ‘traditional’ with its wire hauls and rock molded case. For this very explanation, the group at Ressence is overhauling its model with another, modernized, slimmed-down case – to become the Type 1 Slim.
From a stone formed case with welded drags measuring 42mm in distance across and 13mm thick, the new 42mm Ressence Type 1 Slim has trimmed down its waistline to 11mm. Indeed, even the shape has been fundamentally refreshed, with an unfalteringly 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 roused by the new Type 2. This new shape doesn’t reform 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 stature? To begin with, gratitude to the new caseback and winding/setting framework. Rather than the pivoting 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 component are the caseback itself. Second, the base development has been transformed from an ETA 2824/2 to an ETA 2892/A, which is marginally slimmer as well (3.60mm versus 4.60mm). Altogether, Ressence Type 1 has lost 2mm.
What doesn’t change is the presentation, which comprises in a huge moment plate (enacted with the moment pivot 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) creates a steadily changing dial as the satellites orbit one another. Data is shown on a solitary surface with no hands. Composed of 107 sections, the pinion wheels in the ROCS figure the seconds, hours and day, taking 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 avoided). More subtleties at ressencewatches.com .
