Ressence announces a striking addition to its Type 1 collection: the Type 1 Slim Red. Distinguished by a bold red dial and matching rubber strap, it brings an energetic warmth to the brand’s fundamental design. Limited in number, this new watch will only be produced until the end of 2021.
The new design marks a significant step for Ressence, which to date has tended to draw from a traditional colour palette for its watches.
The Type 1 Slim was first introduced in 2019, as a thinner, more streamlined evolution of the original Type 1. It is notable not only for its slimmed-down case, which was reduced from 13mm to 11mm thick but for the move towards an integrated case shape: the case and lugs are milled from one block of grade five titanium for a sleeker, more modern silhouette. In this new Type 1 Slim Red incarnation, that smooth flow from case to strap enhances the impact of the brilliant red.
In keeping with Ressence’s focus on legibility and usability, the red dial is detailed with white hands and pale grey minute markers, with additional rhodium edging to the hour and minute hands for greater definition. The dial markers are coated with white and red SuperLuminova, lending the watch an intense character in dark conditions. The red and white detailing continues to the case-back, where the watch’s reference number is picked out in red.
