Young, innovative independent watch brand Ressence pulls out all the stops with two new timepieces: the Type 8S in Sage Green and the Type 1° Round in Night Blue – also available in black.
1. Type 8S in Sage Green
Available in a lightweight grade 5 Titanium 42.9mm sleek case, the Type 8S comes with a domed sage green dial displaying simple white baton markers that are legible from all angles – a feat made possible with Ressence’s Orbital Convex System (ROCS) display.

This display includes rotating discs set into the same plane as the dial offering a new ever-changing look with each glance. The main dial rotates to indicate the minutes and within it lies a smaller dial that rotates to mark the hours. The hand, hour, and minute scales come coated in SuperLuminova® for better night-time legibility. The sage green beauty comes with a titanium case back that intuitively rotates to set the time, while simultaneously winding the patented ROCS 8 – Ressence Orbital Convex System – movement. The self-winding movement is based on a specially customised and reinforced ETA calibre 2892/2 and houses a 36-hour power reserve.
The Type 8S sits on a grey leather strap with a polished Ardillon buckle in grade 5-titanium and is priced at CHF12,500 (INR 11,17,612.81).

2. Type 1° Round in Night Blue
The new Type 1° Round available in a striking new shade of Night Blue, in addition to another model in black, comes in a 42.7 mm case set in grade 5 titanium with an anti-reflective, double-toned sapphire crystal domed top.

Sitting on a leather strap, the new Type 1° Round comes equipped with the patented ROCS 1.3 - Ressence Orbital Convex System - module driven by the minute axle of a customised 2892 base calibre. The self-winding movement offers a power reserve of 36 hours.
The convex dial is available in German silver with 3 eccentric bi-axial satellites that have been simplified with indexes every 10 minutes and a weekday dial that subtly unites the 2 non-working days of the week with a touch of colour. The Second and Weekday hands are larger for improved reading.

As is the case with the Type 8S in Sage Green – and all other timepieces by Ressence – the Type 1° Round in Night Blue and in Black, also rotate intuitively to set the time without the need for a crown.
