Re-inventing 21st Century fine watchmaking requires re-thinking when it comes to the relationship one has with watches.
A watch has an obvious functional role to play in our lives. But beyond that, it is emotional. The new TYPE 1° Round perpetuates Ressence’s minimalistic incarnation of time. Featuring revolving discs that display time in a bi-dimensional format with truly ergonomic design.
As with all Ressence watches, the TYPE 1° Round aims to create a meaningful, emotional and tactile relationship between owner and watch. Ressence wants their users to love their watch. With this in mind, every detail of this new design has a reason for being and contributes to awaken the senses.
The latest evolution of Ressence’s TYPE 1 story is the TYPE 1° Round.
