Ressence, the watch company devoted to challenging the status quo of mechanical watchmaking, is excited to announce the release of the Type 3BBB, a new example of the award-winning Type 3 watch in an exclusive monochrome design.
The Type 3BBB is a continuation of the evolution expressed by the Type 3B and Type 3BB and as such, is the ultimate monochrome execution of the revolutionary oil-filled mechanical watch that first launched in 2013. The name stands for ‘Black, Black, Black’ in reference to the reduced colour palette of the watch; the Type 3BBB will be produced for just one year, ending on December 31st 2022.
Drawing on the inherent qualities of Ressence’s crown-free case design and the edge-to-edge sapphire crystal found on both the front and back of the watch, the Type 3BBB resembles a perfectly smooth, black pebble, worn by time and water into its rounded, ergonomic form. For the first time in the Type 3 range, the Type 3BBB features a polished black DLC-coated titanium case, to match the glossy sapphire.
