  • Catalogue Essay

    The history of the Belgian brand, Ressence, started at Baselworld in 2010 where three functional Swiss-made prototypes were presented. One year later, a limited edition of 50 pieces of the Series Zero was offered with great fanfare - rapidly making the brand a favourite amongst aficionados of independent horology. Since then, the company has never stopped amazing and intriguing the minds of independent collectors world wide.

    To mark its 10th anniversary, Mr. Porter collaborated with Ressence, amongst other brands to design a unique collection for the special occasion. In its unique and functionally avant-garde way, Ressence developed the Type 1 MP2. Featuring a multi-dimensional and continually orbiting dial, the combination of matte green in contrast with its Grade 5 Titanium case is stealthy and stunning at the same time.

    Inside, beats the Ressence Orbital Convex System (ROCS), the in-house developed horological unit, which features discs that continually orbit around one another. Once in motion, the ROCS is certain to redefine the definition of magic by allowing its wearer to observe the passage of time in a unique and technically impressive way.

    Designed as a modern and wearable interpretation of an hourglass and limited to 10 pieces, the present Type 1S MP2 is numbered 5 and was exclusively available through Mr. Porter. Coming with its complete and original set of accessories, the watch is in like-new condition and presents itself as a unique opportunity to own and be part of a collaboration between two extremely contemporary and important players that are proving to be revolutionary in today's market.


A fine and unusual limited edition grade 5 titanium wristwatch with orbiting hour, day of the week, AM/PM display, Certificate of Origin and presentation box, numbered 5 of a limited edition of 10 pieces, made in commemoration of the 10th Anniversary of Mr. Porter
