Ressence Type 1DBX: An Arabic Take on Skeleton dials

Ressence, the watch company that keeps challenging the status quo of mechanical watchmaking, in close collaboration with Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons, the UAE’s leading retailer of luxury watches and jewelry, is excited to announce the release of the Type 1 DXB – a limited edition of Type 1 Squared. Limited to 19 pieces, Type 1DXB draws inspiration from Arabic geometric patterns, believed to unveil the underlying reality to the viewer.

The watch remains 100% faithful to the functions and movement of its parent, the Type 1 Squared. It differs distinctly from the collection both in its design and in its material though. Unlike the other Type 1 Squared the case is not made of stainless steel. Its case is in polished Grade 5 titanium, with a satin finish back. The Ressence Orbital Convex System (ROCS), unique in-house (and patented) module featuring ever-changing discs that continually orbit around one another, benefits from another design but also a different surface treatment. The 9 components that make up the dial are finished in sand color PVD (physical vapor deposition). The hands and indexes are white and filled with Superluminova punctuating a decidedly traditional but fresh look. Ressence’s “less is more” philosophy, which enables it to produce state-of-the-art but always revolutionary watches is pushed to the limit.
