Designing watches the likes of which have never been seen before, Ressence’s unique approach to watchmaking has created a design language that is traceable only to them. Characteristically unconventional, to put it lightly, Ressence utilizes spherical discs displaying the hours, minutes, seconds, and days that rotate through the displays of their timepieces to create an ever-evolving appearance for their watches. Released in 2014 and featuring a display system called the ‘Ressence Orbital Convex System’ that comprises of 27 gears and 40 jewels with painted engraved indications, the Type 1G is a true feat of craftsmanship and engineering that truly seems to have come from a sci-fi movie rather than an artisanal Swiss watchmaker. The "G" in 1G is for its beautiful silvered guilloche dial, which was executed by Faberge.

A unique watch oozing with personality and a distinctive style that only Ressence have come to master, the Type 1G is a wonderful example of what a watchmaker can create when they venture beyond the conventions set by their industry.
