Ressence, in collaboration with the Monaco-based collective Art In Time, presents the new Ressence Type 5 AIT, a limited edition of 12 watches, whose flagship is to contribute to the protection of the environment and the sustainable promotion of local and global development.
Of the 12 watches, only 11 will be made available to the public and each one with unique yellow detail on the hours’ disc, while the 12 watch presents the Ressence logo in yellow and will be sold at a charity event in September with the proceeds going to the Prince Albert II Foundation of Monaco.
The Foundation, created in 2006, aims to bring together important personalities from the political, scientific, economic and civil spheres around the world with the aim of protecting the ocean and land, contributing to the protection of endangered species, improving the living conditions of rural communities through sustainable and ethical solutions.
Regarding the new Ressence TYPE 5, it stands out above all from the previous variants by presenting a grey dial with several yellow details. And starting with the Grade 5 titanium tapered case, it features a sandwich-style construction, with polished and satin finishing, uni-directional bezel, which now comes with protrusions every 10 minutes and with the 60-minute mark being replaced with an inverted yellow triangle, domed sapphire crystal and the rear-mounted crown deploys the Ressence Compression lock System (RCLS).
As for the dial, it now features a yellow outer ring minute, and the usual layout of three uneven discs, one for hours, one for seconds and one for oil temperature, all of them sharing yellow accents and filled with generous layers of Super-LumiNova allowing easy reading even in low light situations. Below the oil-filled upper chamber is an air-filled lower chamber that houses the automatic movement, which uses a magnet transmission to drive the discs on the Ressence Orbital Convex System (ROCS) dial.
Inside it is powered by the patented ROCS 5 based on the customized Caliber 2824/2 which operates at 28,800 Vph and offers up to 36 hours of power reserve.
The watch is supplied with a yellow rubber strap with a grade 5 titanium buckle.
The 11 units available to the public will be available for purchase exclusively at Art In Time for €35,500.
