SIHH 2019: Ressence Introduces the Type 1 Slim

Leaner, sleeker.

Two years after the introduction of the Type 1 Squared, the cushion-shaped model that was smaller and slimmer, Ressence now unveils the Type 1 Slim. It’s a slimmed down version of the  most pared back watch in the Ressence catalogue,

The Type 1 Slim features a monobloc titanium case that measures 42mm in diameter and 11mm in height. Its tonneau shape and lug-less design makes for an eminently sleeker case.  As with all other Ressence watches, the Type 1 Slim has no crown, the winding and setting mechanism being the case back itself.

Available in black, blue, white and grey, the dial is slightly convex, echoing the curve of the domed sapphire crystal. It is made of German silver and features engraved indications filled with Super-Luminova.

Time is indicated with the signature Ressence Orbital Convex System (ROCS), wherein traditional watch hands are replaced by planetary discs.

The ROCS is made up of 107 components, with the entire dial rotating on itself, and each sub-dial making smaller revolutions to display the hours, minutes, seconds and day of the week.
