If you regularly read these pages, you will know full well I am a MASSIVE fan of RESSENCE. From the outset, they have challenged assumptions on what a watch should be and how we should interact with one. I like people and products that look to continuously challenge the status que. And RESSENCE certainly does.
Just when I thought things couldn’t get any tastier from the Antwerp based independent brand — they just did. The new TYPE 1 ‘Squared’ is RESSENCE’s take on a dress watch.
Over the years we have become familiar with their intuitive ‘no hands’ display (which continues here). But when you look at the Type 1, you will notice a number of things that differ from a design and material perspective when compared with the rest of their collection.
Borne from the intersection of 6 spheres, it has a cushion shape case which plugs in seamlessly to the integrated lugs and an interchangeable bracelet system inherited from the TYPE 3.
