TYPE 1W WHITE SLIM
At the heart of a RESSENCE watch is ROCS, or the Ressence Orbital Convex System. Our patented 3 dimensional complication is the result of years of planning, prototyping and pushing boundaries.
The purpose is a more efficient way of telling time. Information is displayed on a single surface, much like words on a piece of paper, making for improved readability.
The convex discs displaying hours, minutes, seconds and days of the week may be seen as the dial on a traditional watch but are actually the ROCS’s bridges of the TYPE 1 Slim.
Following our organic design philosophy, the discs have a 125mm radius sphere shape and require specific know-how and tools to be produced.

WHY WE LOVE IT
The Type 1 was a real breath of fresh air in the watch industry when it first came out with its unique time display case design and a crown-less as the time setting and winding is done via the caseback! Now in a new slimmer version Ressence have just improved upon a great design, it feels even better on the wrist.
