Founded in 2010 by Benoît Mintiens, Ressence creates innovative mechanical watches. They represent an independent way of thinking about fine watchmaking – no less expertly hand-crafted, but with an industrial design philosophy that seeks to be progressive, and a clear, graphic aesthetic that is decidedly 21st century. Their pioneering concept is to replace the conventional hands with rotating discs for an intuitive reading of the Time. Subdials continually revolve, as does the main disc into which they are set – like moons in orbit around a planet. Ressence watches have so far capitalised on six never-before-seen technical innovations.
