Baselworld 2010: Ressence

By Don Corson

The watches of Ressence are the work of the industrial designer Benoît Mintiens. 
Like other watches coming more from the design than the watchmaking heritage these watches are a fresh breeze on the scene.
With a type of regulator dial, as the minute hand turns, the entire dial with its subdials turns always maintinaing the correct relative positions. 
The front and back saphires go around the edges so there is no besel holding them allowing the dial to be almost the full diameter of the case.


Interesting design reminescent of a George Daniels dial but a really thick straight sided case as expected for a newcomer without access to complexed case making.
