Established in 2010 by industrial designer Benoît Mintiens, Ressence embraces the philosophy of “Less is More,” discarding some elements that have defined traditional watches for decades. Unveiled in 2013, and since then sought-after by fans of independent and Avantgarde watchmaking, the TYPE 3 stunned the watch industry as the pioneering oil-filled mechanical timepiece that was awarded with the the prestigious “Horological Revelation” Prize at the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève in the same year.
Built upon Ressence’s signature crown-free case design, the TYPE 3 features a seamless, edge-to-edge sapphire crystal on both its front and back, resembling the smooth contours of a natural pebble. This tactile quality is as gratifying in the hand as it is on the wrist. Now, adding vibrancy to its core lineup, the TYPE 3 EE introduces a captivating Eucalyptus Green shade.
However, the TYPE 3 EE not only adds a striking color but also introduces new design elements. The hour disc boasts a simplified graphical approach with indexes every two hours, while the weekend days and oil temperature indications showcase fresh pastel hues.
Benoît Mintiens, Founder of Ressence, remarks: “This new Eucalyptus Green TYPE 3 is truly reminiscent of a precious mineral. Holding and wearing a Ressence has never been more akin to experiencing the serene feel of a polished stone’s smooth surface.”
Presented with a 44mm titanium case and paired with a honeycomb strap, the new Eucalyptus Green watch harmoniously complements the existing TYPE 3 Black and White models. Scheduled for global release in early October 2023 through Ressence’s official retailer network, the TYPE 3 EE is priced at CHF 38,200 (excluding taxes), or about $43,300 USD at time of writing.
