Introducing the Ressence Type 1H limited edition for Hodinkee.
few months back, we suggested keeping your credit line free and clear for a potential surprise launch of a heart-stopping limited edition timepiece requiring your immediate financial attention. Horological catnip to watch fans and collectors, these panic-inducing online flash sales create a buy-it-now frenzy that produces amazing results in remarkably short amounts of time. Well, fire up that Black Card, the next day of reckoning has arrived.
Online watch magazine Hodinkee has done it again, this time with an unexpected collaboration with the avant-garde Belgian watchmaker Ressence, known for creating innovative watches that completely reinvent how you read the time—the hour, minutes, and seconds become a series of concentric circles each turning independently inside one another. The 20-piece Type 1H limited edition for Hodinkee accentuates this orbital system even further by skeletonizing—cutting away—sections of the discs, making the fascinating inner workings entirely visible through the German silver dial.
