  • Catalogue Essay

    Based in Antwerpen, Belgium, Ressence is an up-and-coming watch manufacturer founded by Benoît Mintiens in 2010. While the brand designs and engineers their watches in Antwerpen, their timepieces are produced and assembled in Switzerland – an impeccable combination that offers Belgian design philosophy with Swiss horological heritage.

    At Baselworld 2014, Ressence revealed a new collection, Type 1, which created an instant sensation. Featuring a flat titanium case and inwards-pointing lugs, Type 1 is an innovative watch that does not have a crown. To wind the watch, the bottom crystal must be rotated when the watch is placed upside down. Another important and ground-breaking feature is the functionality of the small indicator disc, which indicates the day of the week. The convex discs displaying seconds, minutes, hours and days of the week may be seen as the dial on a traditional watch, but are, as a matter of fact, the bridges of the Type 1.

    Completed with a warranty card and a Ressence fitted presentation box, the present watch is an awe-inspiring watch to be added to any collection.
