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
Price: 17,500 €

The “Silver Arrow Of The Seas”
The philosophy of Mercedes-Benz Style embraces an intelligent and progressive design vocabulary that functions perfectly. Mercedes-Benz Style represents a very deliberate and distinctive use of innovation materials, and a bold combination of colors, structures, forms, and light.
The “Silver Arrow Of The Seas,” a ground-breaking yacht designed in collaboration with Mercedes-Benz Style, lives up to its name with a cruising speed of 28 to 30 knots on calm seas, or 51 to 55 km/h, and a top speed of 40 knots, or 75 km/h.
With its long foredeck and flowing, curved roofline, this yacht has the proportions of the classic racing car, The Mercedes Silver Arrow. The sides of the hull are designed with a characteristic line that descends softly. The interaction between concave and convex elements on the flank creates a hull that transmits both energy and serenity. The overall design is accented by elegant and functional details honed to perfection.
The interiors offer an ultimate comfort for spending the night aboard the yacht, which was developed in collaboration with Silver Arrows Marine.
Key points: This yacht, synonymous with modern luxury, evokes an avant-garde style and comfortable elegance blended with the high performance Mercedes-Benz sports cars and unique innovations in boat technology.
Plus: The large, side lateral windows are retractable and the windshield lifts to create a pergola, offering passengers a panoramic view and protection from the sun.
