Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication

Lean & Clear

The Type 8 refines the starting principles of originality, accessibility, and innovation to their essence.


Feather Light

The Type 8 has a hyper-modern, sleek case whose deceptively simple, lean silhouette is the most minimal of all Ressence creations. Crafted entirely from grade five titanium, the 42.9 mm case contributes to an extremely light overall weight of 42 grams only.

Fingertip Setting

Like all Ressence watches, the Type 8 is set and wind by turning its case back. The watch's ambidextrous design, combined with its streamlined shape and light weight make for a comfortable experience on all wrists.

Current Time


Playful, colourful, and streamlined, the Ressence Type 8 is designed for ergonomic comfort and maximum legibility. It is powered by a traditional automatic movement, reinforcing Ressence's commitment to mechanical innovation.

Night & Day.

Watch day Watch night

We believe that displaying the time is essential to a watch. The readability of the Type 8 is therefore as simple and efficient during the night as during the day thanks to extra strong blue Superluminova.
