The first decade of a brand should always be seen as an important milestone. For Ressence it has been a meaningful journey thus far, with a multitude of important moments. Memorably the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève award in 2013 gave Ressence an international resonance. Becoming a member of the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie in 2016 acted as recognition from industry insiders. It anchored the brand in the Fine-Watchmaking category. But it is the successful launch of Ressence’s patented electronic crown, the e-Crown ®, that was certainly the most challenging and rewarding step. Demonstrating that the brand will relentlessly move forward, out of its comfort zone and continue approaching fine watchmaking differently.
Ressence continues to change the way and the why we experience watches by introducing the first piece of their X collection. Collection X marks the first 10 years and brings the brand manifesto to life. Visually Ressence created a dedicated symbol for the collection that is the fusion of an X, or ten in Latin, and an hourglass. It sits proudly on the hour disc of the Type 1 Slim X. Each of the four watches of the Collection X is limited to 40 pieces and shares the main dark olive-green colour. They are all devoted to a better use of time, graphically making us more aware of the time that is passing like an hourglass does.
The Brand Manifesto.
Time is an asset.
Every day, we all get 24 hours.
No more, no less.
Still Time seems to slip through our hands.
Modern society, made of fast and over-connected consumerism,
pushes us towards meaningless and passive activities.
Ressence is dedicated to changing our relation to Time.
So that we can spend it more consciously,
and make every minute count.
Time is now.
