The new TYPE 3 EE brings green hues to Ressence’s hero watch
Ressence’s oil-filled TYPE 3 welcomes a striking Eucalyptus Green design within its core range. Forward-thinking, highly legible, and now refreshingly colorful, the TYPE 3 EE appeals at first glance.
The TYPE 3 EE adds a statement color to a statement watch. With its cool undertones, this soft green hue gives the award-winning TYPE 3 an unconventional feel, evocative of lush forests and outdoor living.
Beyond the new color, the TYPE 3 EE introduces new details. The hour disc has been graphically simplified with indexes every two hours. Weekend days and oil temperature indications present new pastel tones.
First ever oil-filled mechanical watch
When launched in 2013, the TYPE 3 took the watch industry by surprise as the first ever oil-filled mechanical watch. It was awarded the “Horological Revelation” Prize by the prestigious GPHG the same year. Drawing on the inherent qualities of Ressence’s crown-free case design, the edge-to-edge sapphire crystal found on both front and back of the forward-thinking TYPE 3 resembles a perfectly smooth and natural-looking pebble, making it as satisfying in the hand as on the wrist.
The TYPE 3 engages with physics like no other watch has before. It cancels out the distortion caused by the refraction of light, ensuring exceptional readability from any angle. The explanation lies in its upper chamber, which is flooded with 3.75 ml of oil, creating a magnified projection effect that gives the illusion of information displayed directly on the glass. As a result of this revolutionary technology, the Ressence TYPE 3 provides a crystal-clear display that remains easy to read, regardless of the lighting conditions, even in the dark. This is made possible not only by the oil-filled chamber but also by filling all engraved indications with 100% grade A Super-LumiNova®.
While the oil provides a clear and magnified display, it is also sensitive to temperature variations. To compensate for the oil’s expansion or contraction under varying thermal conditions, Ressence has developed an innovative and state-of-the-art Bellow System. It is a self-equilibrating pressure-balance system that maintains an even pressure and prevents any negative impact on performance. The Bellow System is graphically represented by a temperature gauge on the dial, adding a unique and visually striking element to both the TYPE 3 and the TYPE 5.
Another benefit of the oil-filled chamber is that all parts of the ROCS are constantly lubricated, resulting in very low friction. The relative weight of the ball bearings is also reduced and in turn reduces the effort the movement has to provide.
