New Watch! • 15 Mar 2023
Introducing: Ressence TYPE 8 S in Sage Green
The minimalist and lightweight Ressence TYPE 8 now comes in a refreshing sage green colour. Retaining all the merits of its premier model launched in 2022, the new TYPE 8 S continues Ressence’s philosophy of combining innovative design and cutting-edge technology to create distinct and functional watches.
“The TYPE 8 is the purest, most essential of all Ressence experiences. You cannot possibly subtract anything more from it.” Benoît Mintiens, Founder of Ressence, says of the watch.
Graphically simplified to the essence, the watch indicates only the hours and minutes, and with no text or numbers, the domed Sage Green dial has been reduced to its essence. Simple white baton markers present the time with perfect clarity from any angle, thanks to the revolutionary Ressence Orbital Convex System (ROCS) display.
As with all Ressence watches, the dial of the TYPE 8 eschews traditional notions of centrally- mounted hands. Instead, the main dial, a domed piece of titanium, rotates to indicate the minutes. Set within it on the same plane, a smaller dial rotates to mark the hours. Thus the entire dial is ever- changing, but still presents an intuitive at-a-glance display, legible from any angle. The hands, the hour and minute scales are picked out in SuperLuminova® for low-light legibility.
Discreet and Flexible
Ressence is known for designs adhering to its founding principle of ergonomic utility. The titanium case back of the TYPE 8 intuitively rotates to set the time, while simultaneously winding the mechanical movement. This ambidextrous design makes for a comfortable experience on all wrists. The TYPE 8 is also the lightest of all Ressence watches. With the case made from grade 5 titanium, the watch weighs in at a mere 42g including the strap, and is water resistant to 30m.
