Ressence TYPE 3X Limited Edition

The Type 3X is the third piece of the collection X. Collection X marks the first 10 years of the brand. Visually we have created a dedicated symbol for the collection that is the fusion of an X, or ten in Latin, and an hourglass. It sits proudly on the hour disc of the Type 3X.

Each of the four watches of the Collection X is limited to 40 pieces, with the dark olive-green colour being the common thread linking all pieces. The collection focus is the better utilisation of time through design - graphically making us more aware of the importance of passing time.

Collaboration with Stefan Sagmeister.
Stefan Sagmeister, a Ressence client, formed the New York based Sagmeister Inc. in 1993 and has since designed for clients as diverse as the Rolling Stones, HBO, and the Guggenheim Museum. Having been nominated eight times he finally won two Grammies for the Talking Heads and Brian Eno & David Byrne package designs.

The Type 3X is part of the Ressence collection X but also of a larger project of Stefan Sagmeister that has to do with long term thinking.

Now is Better - the bigger perspective.
Short term media like Twitter and hourly news feed create an impression of a world out of control, with democracy in peril, ubiquitous conflicts and an overall outlook of doom. Even if you look at pandemics from a point of view of 100 years, you will see that the Spanish Flu killed 45 million people, Aids/HIV about 30 million people. This of course does not mitigate the unbelievable one million humans that lost their lives during Covid 19, but it does put the often-quoted view that we live in ‘unprecedented times’ into perspective.

Looking at global development with a long term perspective we observe that almost every aspect concerning humanity seems to be getting better. Fewer people go hungry, fewer people die in wars and natural disasters, more people live in democracies - and live much longer lives than ever before. 200 years ago 9 out of 10 people could neither read nor write, now it is just 1 out of 10.

New way of experiencing the date.

The new date ring around the dial is composed of 280 coloured lines: 140 blue lines and 140 orange lines. An overlayed grid allows the user to see only one of both colours at once. So you have Blue days and Orange days. Each day at midnight the colour changes from orange to blue or from blue to orange. One of these 140 lines has an inversed colour. So if 139 lines are orange - one will be blue. This inverted coloured line indicates the day of the month and rotates around the dial in 30 days. So if the inverted mark is positioned at 15’, the user understands quickly that ¼ of the month has passed.

The utilization of the date mechanism into a loop of changing colours is an attempt to remind the wearer to look at the world not one day at a time, but from a much longer point of view.

The Type 3X.

The Type 3X's dial graphics have been redesigned by Stefan Sagmeister. The day and the oil temperature sub dials share the same lines as the date. The minute track bears the “Now is Better” sentence in a rather subtle manner and the hour dial has a distinct numeral font. The olive-green dial colour exquisitely softens and darkens in the Type 3X with the presence of oil. For the first time ever, a Type 3 has a closed case back made in polished grade 5 Titanium. Making the watch slimmer and consequently a better fit on the wrist.

Intuitive in viewing and motion, understated and philosophical in its aesthetics, the Type 3X is truly a perfect example of 21st century watchmaking which celebrates optimism and a long-term perspective on the passage of time.
