Ressence releases limited edition Type 1 Slim X in olive green


Ressence is marking its 10th anniversary with four limited edition Type 1 Slim X watches, all of which will share the same dark olive green livery.

Each of the watches will be made in a production run of just 40 units, the first of which is unveiled today.

There has been a tweak to the familiar Ressence design. The dial and the largest subdial that shows the hours are divided down the middle, with a circular pattern on one side and a matt finish on the other.


As time passes, the dials rotate, creating patterns within patterns on the dial.

“In a playful way, the different finishes reinterpret the color as the light hits the surface,” Ressence describes.

On the minute and the hour discs, the two finishes are a graphical extension of the hands. “Once in motion, magic takes on new meaning. At a glance, you can literally observe the passage of time. It is meant as a modern and wearable interpretation of an hourglass,” the brand says.

The watch does not have a crown, so time is changed using a lever on the back of the watch.

The 42mm titanium case houses Ressence’s patented ROCS1 movement that drives the hours, minutes, seconds and weekday indicators.

It is worn on an olive green calfskin strap.
