Manufacture Ressence

Ressence was founded in 2010 with one goal in mind: to challenge the status quo of the mechanical watch, its relevance in modern times, and to renew an industry that seems to rest on its past achievements. Winner of the 2013 Horological Revelation Award at the prestigious Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Genève, Ressence approaches contemporary Haute Horlogerie in a singular way: combining Swiss-made calibers with exclusive innovations developed in-house to reimagine how, in the present day, mechanical watches can function and interact with their user.

Type 3

The Type 3 offers an astonishing visual spectacle, giving you the impression of being able to "touch time". The first mechanical watch filled with oil, its dial gives a "water drop" effect that allows a 3D spherical display.

Type 5

Considered the most readable dive watch of all time thanks to its dial immersed in an oil bath, the Type 5 is nonetheless a true diver's watch, with a design in the shape of a sea turtle and an ISO6425 certification.

A new way to read the time

The starting point of RESSENCE is the deconstruction of the traditional watch in order to express Time in the purest possible way. This original concept is summarized by the motto "BEYONDHANDS". The Ressence watchmakers have replaced conventional watch hands with rotating discs for an intuitive reading of Time. Thus, all Ressence watches share the same inimitable DNA. Their sub-dials rotate continuously, just like the main disc in which they are inserted, a bit like moons orbiting a planet.
