  • Catalogue Essay

    - One of only 40 pieces made, the present limited edition Ressence Type 1 Slim X is part of a collection of four models- all with olive green dials - made in commemoration of the 10th anniversary of Benoît Mintiens' disruptive 'hands free' concept.

    - Instead of having a dial over which hands would rotate, it is the entire structure of the dial that moves with 4 independent subdials to display hours, minutes, seconds and day of the week. The position of the hand on the day display will also indicate AM/PM. It’s a fascinating timekeeping system the brand calls the Ressence Orbital Convex System.

    - One will notice as well that there is no visible crown on the watch, either on the case side or back. Ingeniously, by rotating the sandblasted titanium caseback it is possible to set time and wind the watch.

    - Offered with its full set of accessories the present example is number 11 of a 40 piece limited edition.


A fine and unusual titanium wristwatch with orbiting hour, day of the week, AM/PM display, Certificate of Origin and presentation box, made in commemoration of the 10th Anniversary of Ressence, numbered 11 of a limited edition of 40 pieces
