The Shit That Killed Elvis 6 / 12

Courtesy of Ressence

Once again, I was at the end of the Conga Line on this one, but Ressence's Type 5 was one of the coolest watches that I personally experienced this year.  Blancpain, Rolex and others will continue to churn out very good, very solid dive watches.  But when it comes to unique and innovative ways to construct a watch, Ressence continues to set the bar very high.

Here are the pertinents -

  • Hours
  • Minutes
  • Runner (90 Seconds)
  • Oil Temperature
  • Patented ROCS 5 - Ressence Orbital Convex System - module driven by the minute axle of a customised 2824/2 base calibre         
  • Caseback winding and time setting with RCLS – Ressence Compression Lock System
  • Magnetic Transmission
  • Compensating Bellow System
  • Self-winding
  • 36 hours power reserve
  • 28,800 vibrations per hour
  • 41 jewels
  • 25 gears
  • Convex Grade 5 Titanium dial (125mm radius) with three eccentric biaxial satellites inclined at 3° (hours) and 4.75° (thermal gauge and runner)
  • Engraved indications filled with blue and green Superluminova
  • Grade 5 Titanium 
  • Two separate sealed chambers with the upper one filled with 37.5 ml of oil
  • Domed sapphire crystals top and bottom with both sides anti-reflective coating
  • Uni-directional bezel
