Upgrade your wrist
The eCrown® is able to detect when the watch is no longer being worn and will stop the movement betore it exhausts its power reserve, ready to be re-started when you pick it up again.
eCrown® is activated and controlled by tapping the crystal on the dial of the TYPE 2, offering a new tactile experience and user-friendliness to mechanical watches.
Visually, it is represented on the dial by the selector sub disc and its four modes (time zone 1, time zone 2, app and eCrown® off).
"The best way to envision the future of fine-watchmaking is by creating it."
Ressence founder and creative mind.
The development of the eCrown® came down to one simple but fundamental question: What if I could trust and rely on my mechanical watch as much as I do for my phone.
eCrown® automatically sets and adjusts the TYPE 2 to the right time when needed.
The TYPE 2 is manually set via the lever on its case back. By double tapping the crystal, the manually set time is digitally registered by eCrown®. There is no need to think about checking and adjusting the watch anymore, eCrown® does it automatically. Even after three months of inactivity, once the watch is fastened to the wrist and the wearer taps the crystal, eCrown® will automatically set it to the right time.
We developed the eCrown® app to reach an unseen level of convenience and modernity. Using Bluetooth to connect with the TYPE 2, the app displays a scroll down list of cities to choose from for both time zones to send directly to the smart crown.
The TYPE 2 uses light energy to power the eCrown®. Photovoltaic cells (some hidden behind 10 micro-shutters on the dial) will use outside light as an energy source making the watch selfsufficient; a fundamental quality in the nomadic world of today.
The eCrown® allows two timezones to be stored. A single touch and your watch will always be precisely set and on time.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The patented ROCS 2 or ‘Ressence Orbital Convex System’, is our in-house horological complication and is driven by the minute axle of a customised 2892 base calibre.
Inside the TYPE 2 the ROCS 2 includes photovoltaic cells to allow fast charging.
