Hurray for Hues: Meet the Ressence Type 1 Round Multicolor

Introducing the latest addition to the Ressence lineup, the Type 1 Round Multicolour offers a playful twist on the cutting-edge principle of the time display forgoing with hands. The timepiece showcases a sleek titanium case paired with a double-domed sapphire crystal top, measuring 42.7mm x 11mm. The dial, made from German silver, features a sophisticated light grey background, complemented by hands in a deeper hue with vibrant colored tips.

The minute track, adorned with markers of varying lengths, adopts a stylish blue hue with white indicators for 5-minute intervals. The hour disc stands out in a striking green, while the seconds take on a vibrant yellow, and the weekday indication is highlighted in red, with weekends clearly marked. Adding to its allure, all engraved indications are filled with grade A Super-LumiNova for enhanced visibility in various lighting conditions.

Driving the circular movement of the discs is the advanced ROCS 1.3 (Ressence Orbital Convex System) module, which derives its power from the reliable ETA 2892 base calibre. Operating at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, the self-winding caliber ensures a 36-hour power reserve. Through a system of 27 gears, the discs elegantly rotate on a single, slightly convex plane to indicate hours, minutes, seconds, and weekdays.

Effortless functionality is achieved through a retractable lever on the caseback, enabling seamless time-setting and winding operations with a rotating motion. Setting the time not only adjusts the display but also winds the timepiece simultaneously.

The Ressence Type 1 Round Multicolor is equipped with a rubber strap and priced at CHF 16,800, excluding taxes, or about $19,240 when converted to USD at time of writing.
