Ressence: Type 1² "Squared"

September 11, 2018

More intuitive, more functional, more playful, more pure…

Ressence, otherwise known as Renaissance de l’Essentiel, is a brand that places the end-user in the heart of its first collection of watches. Their goal is to show the essence of time in the most intuitive way possible, while showcasing an ergonomic accent on functionality.

It’s thanks to its new way of telling time, ROCS (Ressence Orbital Convex System), that this watch truly stands out. Entirely designed and developed in-house, this unique watch-making complication is composed of different sized disks, which are curved to follow the rounded shape of the convex glass covering them. All of the time-keeping indications of the Ressence watches are generated by the ROCS from the basic information provided by the automatic movement: the minute axel.

Research for better ergonomics has led to the organic design and fluidity of the Ressence watches, which ensures the removal of any impurities. The size of the case is almost invisible and the there is no winding stem. It’s the revolving dial under a domed sapphire crystal that takes on task of keeping perfect time.

Key points: The very flat case and revolving discs on the watch face make the Type 1² model especially elegant.

Plus: The principal display dial as well as the auxiliary dials, rotate continually, as if moons orbiting around a planet.

Four color options for the dial: Silver (argent), Ruthenium (dark gray), Night Blue (blue), and Champagne (champagne)

Styles available for both men and women.

Characteristics: Automatic movement, 36-hour power reserve, 40 jewels, 316L stainless steel case, anti-reflective sapphire crystal, 41 mm (diameter) x 11.5 mm (thickness), 1 ATM water resistance, convex German silver dial (125 mm radius) with three eccentric bi-axial satellites inclined at 3°, blue cordovan leather strap

INTRIGUING DESIGN: TUHURA

August 30, 2018

A Totally Different Yacht Project 

Tuhura is a yacht in a category of its own, a real standout in the market. Its exterior style evokes the earliest canoes: pirogues and other boats used hundreds of years ago by native populations around the world. The Polynesians, in particular, were great explorers, covering thousands of miles across the Pacific Ocean in their outrigger canoes. The idea to revisit these early forms of navigation consists in reviving the spirit of exploration and discovery. In fact, the name of this yacht, Tuhura, is derived from the Maori verb to discover, bring to light unearth, open, explore, and investigate.

The main inspiration for the interior design comes from Eastern Asia and the islands of the Pacific. All of the systems onboard are intelligent: lighting, audio, video, temperature…

Key points: The design of Tuhura borrows the natural form of the earliest form of navigation: the canoe. The yacht is designed on a larger scale and features all of the latest technology.

Plus: The hull was created with multiple horizontal windows, using an advanced glass technology made up of a series of dots that stop prying eyes from looking in, but still allow guests on board to enjoy a seamless view out to sea, as if through a normal pane of glass. The windows appear to be the same color as the hull.

Characteristics: Length: 115m, draft (from waterline to bottom of hull): 3.9m, speed: 18 knots
