Ressence, the horological startup, has released a limited edition run of their Type 1 timepiece to commemorate their fifth anniversary. The Type 1 V Genesis will be released in a run of only five pieces.
In homage to the prototype that started the brand, theType 1 V Genesis is assembled with parts taken directly from the production line. The case still bears the scars of the milling process, and the dial–though sandblasted–is otherwise in its raw, unfinished state. The indices lack the SuperLuminova that’s a staple of so many other watches on the market. Only the hands painted on the dial are slightly galvanised to add contrast — via HODINKEE
