Introduction

A collaboration between Ressence and the famed watch publication HODINKEE, the Ressence Type 1 Slim HOD is, as HODINKEE put it, "the most unadulterated take on a Ressence watch yet" as the two brands have worked to distill Ressence's signature design language and simultaneously remove any distracting design details. With its skeletonized dial, the timepiece highlights the movement beneath without compromising the unique display that has gone on to become one of Ressence's most important details in its aesthetic and mechanical execution. Offered in a monochromatic grey case and dial on a grey textile strap, the timepiece pays homage to HODINKEE's signature color while also playing to the timepiece's intention to refrain from being too loud. With only 20 pieces produced, this is an incredibly limited and rare timepiece that has the looks to back up its unique aesthetic and intriguing mechanics.

THE DIAL

Featuring an openworked dial, the type 1 Slim HOD gives a better view of its movement than any previous Ressence release, and has a stunning honeycomb pattern.

THE CASE

A streamlined version of Ressence's Type 1 case, the Type 1 Slim HOD earns its name thanks to an 11mm thick profile and a crown-less construction. Instead, it is wound and set via the crown built into its caseback.

TIMING MACHINE READOUT

This reading was taken (crown down) with a ONEOF Accuracy Boutique Edition timing machine at time of cataloging. It is provided as a courtesy only, and shall not be construed as a warranty or guarantee of any kind. Please refer to our terms and conditions of sale for more information.

Condition

The watch is new and unworn. Images were taken with the QC protective sticker still affixed to the crystal of the watch.

Our Perspective

The second of Ressence's collaboration with HODINKEE, the Type 1 Slim HOD marks Ressence's successful penetration of the wider watch community, as they transition from an obscure independent brand and garner the attention they deserve.
