  • Catalogue Essay

    - Ressence, a renowned watch brand headquartered in Belgium, is known for its cutting-edge designs. Established by Benoît Mintiens in 2010, the company crafts and engineers its watches in Antwerp, while production and assembly take place in Switzerland. This exceptional combination seamlessly blends Belgian design philosophy with Swiss horological heritage.

    - In 2014, at Baselworld, Ressence unveiled their remarkable Type 1 collection, which quickly captivated the industry. The Type 1 watch boasts a sleek titanium case and inward-pointing lugs, showcasing an innovative design that omits the need for a crown.

    - Powering the watch is Ressence's patented calibre ROCS 1.2 which incorporates their revolutionary Ressence Orbital Convex System. This extraordinary system utilizes the minute axle of a customized ETA 2824/2 base calibre to drive the module. To wind the watch, one must rotate the bottom crystal, revealing the convex discs that display seconds, minutes, hours, and days of the week. These rotating discs have become the essence in their future designs.
