Baselworld 2014 was prominent for some things. Rolex delivered their Pepsi GMT-Master II in a white gold case. Omega revealed their Seamaster 300, a line that later filled in as the reason for the James Bond watch in Specter. Ultimately, Ressence, little Belgian watch produce went to the market with their first Type watch; the Ressence Type 1. The brand had just been alive for a very long time at that point. They had past models, however the  Type 1 was the harbinger of their new development. A watch that had no crown, more slender case and unexpected carries in comparison to the past Ressence models. Obviously, it was a triumph. Quick forward to 2019 at SIHH Ressence is giving us one more Type 1 watch. This time it is the Ressence Type 1 Slim. 5 years after its underlying dispatch the Type 1 gets a makeover.

The unique Ressence Type 1

Ressence Type 1 Slim

As its name would recommend, the Type 1 Slim is the up and coming age of the ordinary Type 1. As a matter of fact, Ressence puts it better in their delivery, they say: “the new case configuration isn’t an unrest but instead a development.” This is valid. The Ressence Type 1 Slim is more slender than its archetype at just 11mm (!) and 42mm wide.  Though it looks more contemporary with its pad like case, where the hauls are incorporated into the situation. To such an extent, that the case and drags are processed in one stage from the very titanium block (grade 5). It is water impervious to 1 ATM (around 10m), no your jumper’s watch without a doubt. Concerning capacity, the Ressence Type 1 Slim is essentially a period just watch with a date complication. You have hours, minutes, seconds and weekdays

B, N, RS or W

The Ressence Type 1 Slim comes in four diverse dial varieties. Format shrewd every one of the four are the equivalent. You get an arched German silver dial “with three unusual biaxial satellites” otherwise known as subdials. The biggest subdial is for the hours, the biggest hand pointing at the edge of the dial is for the minutes. The seconds’ dial has 12 short white lists. While the date dial shows with 7 long level files, 2 of them being vacant, for the ends of the week. All pointers are empty (engraved into the dial surface) and have Superluminova paint inside them. The Ressence Type 1B is for the dark dial form. Type 1N represents the Night Blue (my top choice), 1RS is Ruthenium/Silver and 1W is for the white dial. Because of the material utilized in the watch like titanium the Type 1 Slim loads is just 67 grams.


Inside the Ressence Type 1 Slim untruths the company’s ROCS 1 (Ressence Orbital Convex System) type. It’s anything but an in-house development, the base comes from ETA’s 2892/A. In any case, as you’d envision, it is in fact profoundly altered in house by Ressence. Much the same as with the standard Type 1, the watch winding and time setting are through the extraordinary case back, however the Ressence Type 1 Slim is a programmed watch. The ROCS 1 allows you 36 hours of force save with 28,800 Vph. There are 40 Jewels in the development and 27 cog wheels. The complete check of components is 212. Each of the 4 Type 1 Slim variations – as parts of Ressence’s Air Filled Collection – have a similar retail cost at 16,800 CHF (barring tax).
