Type 3 Black

BHD 15,950.000

The TYPE 3 engages with physics like no watch before. The refraction of light as it moves from one substance to another - from air to sapphire crystal, for example - can distort perception. The TYPE 3 cancels this effect through its upper half being flooded with 35.7 ml of oil.

The result is a new sense of clarity and immediacy, more, thanks to reduced friction, greater performance efficiency too.

A new vision for fine watchmaking requires an original perspective and focused intent - that of industrial design. The TYPE 3 took years of meticulous research and development. It expresses both the tradition of watchmaking through its trailblazing patented ROCS - Ressence Orbital Convex System, and thanks to new micro-mechanical technologies such as a magnetic transmission, reinvents it.

It is by re-imagining what and how watches can be, that the TYPE 3 embodies the most innovative yet of RESSENCE’s pioneering ideas based on applied science:

-An oil-filled upper half to allow legibility from every possible angle.

-A magnetic transmission to connect the dry lower half - where the calibre is located - to the oil-filled upper half - where the ROCS is located.

-Seven Bellows to compensate for oil volume changes due to temperature variations.
