An ultra-modern cushion-shaped watch gets an open-worked dial in Arabic aesthetics.
On the occasion of Dubai Watch Week 2019, Ressence presents the Type 1 DXB – a limited edition of the Type 1 Squared. The piece was produced in close collaboration with Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons, the UAE’s leading retailer of luxury watches and jewelry, and is obviously aimed at the Middle East market. Unlike the regular Type 1 Squared this one features a 41mm titanium cushion case as well as very original and distinctive openwork dial: following the Arabic-style geometric patterns it is covered in sand-colored PVD right atop the convex German silver.
Ressence is known for its trademark time telling style – the Orbital Convex System (ROCS) module, and the Type 1 DXB is also based on this three inclined eccentric biaxial satellites indicating hours, seconds and weekdays. They continually orbit around one another along with the large minute disc. The hands and indexes are white and filled with SuperLuminova. The watch is powered by the Swiss automatic movement and is crown-less: all the settings are done via a lever on the caseback. The sand calf strap or khaki NATO style strap are the perfect match for the piece. The series is limited to just 19 pieces and has a price tag of CHF 22,500.
