The TYPE 3 engages with physics like no watch before. The refraction of light as it moves from one substance to another can distort perception. The TYPE 3 cancels this effect through its upper half being flooded with 3.75 ml of oil.
The result is a new sense of clarity and immediacy, more, thanks to reduced friction, greater mechanical efficiency too.
A new vision through industrial design. The TYPE 3 expresses both the tradition of watchmaking through its trailblazing patented ROCS - Ressence Orbital Convex System - and through a unique pebble-like design, as satisfying in the hand as it is on the wrist.
The aim of Ressence to express Time in the purest possible way started by replacing the conventional hands with rotating discs. Suspending them in fluids enhances our original concept as the whole watch becomes the Time itself.
Because life is made of paths that cross and people who find and appreciate each other, we would like to share our most memorable encounters.
"So many people ask me "WHAT is that!?" the first time they see it. Then I have to take it off to show them it's a real watch! People are always so blown away."
Joe adopted a Ressence Type 3
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.
The Japanese have a term for objects that appear simple overall but include subtle details that balance simplicity with complexity: SHIBUI.
This balance of simplicity and complexity ensures that one does not tire of a TYPE 3 but constantly finds new meanings and enriched beauty that cause its aesthetic value to grow over the years. Each TYPE 3 is composed of 376 components carefully assembled by our master watchmakers.
All our watches are assembled and crafted with extreme care by highly skilled people.
All the dials design are engraved and filled with Super-LumiNova of the highest quality.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The patented ROCS 3 is driven by the minute axle of a customized self winding 2824/2 base calibre. Our "Ressence Orbital Convex System" is a state of the art horological complication module composed of 215 parts including the main and sub discs. The result is a dimensional dial entirely in motion and ever changing.
