4 Ressence TYPE 1.

Spherical discs displaying hours, minutes, seconds and days revolve under the domed sapphire crystal. The indications discs continually revolve, as does the whole dial itself. The dial and indications are curved. Ressence design is characterised by purity and minimalism. This quest for pared-down design includes the process of dematerialising the timepiece; a process illustrated by the elimination of traditional hands and by the curved dial. And by removing the crown, the TYPE 1 is addressing the quest for simplicity. Behind the simplified setup/ winding system lies the logical principal that one only needs to set the watch when it is stopped. By setting the watch you will wind it. Once set, the automatic winding rotor will take over to complete the winding while wearing the watch.
