Type 3 is at the forefront of horological and micromechanical innovation - pushing the boundaries of traditional watchmaking. It embodies the most innovative yet of Ressence’s pioneering ideas based on applied science:
- An upper half containing 35.7 ml of oil to ensure legibility from every possible angle.
- Seven bellows to compensate for oil volume changes due to temperature variations.
The result is a new sense of clarity, immediacy and, thanks to reduced friction, greater performance efficiency.
Type 3 won the Horological Revelation prize at the 2013 GPHG.
Type 3's functions are a 360-seconds runner, minutes, hours, days of the week, date and oil temperature. Their subdials continually revolve, as does the main disc into which they are set - like moons in orbit around a planet.
