Ressence continues to explore the color spectrum with the launch of the new TYPE 8 S featuring a Sage Green dial.
This soft, elegant, and highly versatile green instils a sense of optimism and serenity to the lightweight all-titanium timepiece. This new color addition further refines the sixth and latest watch type of the Ressence family collection and perfectly complements the existing TYPE 8 Cobalt Blue. With its deceptively simple aesthetic, the TYPE 8 is designed for ergonomic comfort. The watch focuses on the most essential indications being the hours and the minutes. Price-wise, it forms the entry level range of the brand.
Benoît Mintiens, Founder of Ressence, said: “The TYPE 8 is the purest, most essential of all Ressence experiences. You cannot possibly subtract anything more from it. To maximize legibility, its dial has been reduced to its most viable minimum.”
Asked about his perspective on color, Benoît Mintiens added: “Color is a part of our universal human language that reaches beyond time and culture. Color triggers our emotions and affects how we experience the world around us. Awakening senses is key to Ressence, and color certainly plays a part in this endeavor.”
The Type 8 has a hyper-modern, sleek case crafted entirely in grade five titanium, which contributes to an extremely light overall weight: with the strap included, the watch weighs just 42 grams. The tapered case has a sandwich-style construction with a two-tone finish, showcasing both polished and satin finishing textures. The case has no apparent lugs; instead the overall effect is of one integrated case volume, out of which the strap appears to grow invisibly.
Graphically simplified to the essence, the watch indicates only the hours and minutes, and with no text or numbers. Simple white baton markers present the time with perfect clarity from any angle thanks to the revolutionary Ressence Orbital Convex System (ROCS) display, whereby the dial itself comprises rotating discs set into the same plane.
