RESSENCE

Ressence is a watch brand like no other. While the vast majority of watchmakers rely on hands to tell the time, Ressence has chosen a radically different approach. At first glance, the dial appears to have a large minute hand an an hour subdial, much like a regulator would. On closer inspection, the minute hand is actually an integral part of the dial, which rotates to tell the time. The subdials move alongside the dial, rotating at their own pace.

Despite its unconventional way of telling time, Ressence also sticks to what works. The independent brand retains a generally classic case design that tempers the dial's striking appearance. This makes the watches visually harmonious, and more importantly, wearable in every situation.

As part of our commitment to transparency, we're showing you this watch on our timegrapher. Testing is done in six positions, covering how the watch is worn in daily use.

Timegraphers listen to the ticks which a movement make. Professional machines like ours can take more measurements, create a graph, and support more escapement types.

"Accuracy" refers to how many seconds a movement gains or loses each day. COSC standards require -4/+6 seconds a day, while vintage watches may read closer to -60/+60s.

"Amplitude" tells you how much the balance wheel is moving each rotation. Certain escapements have a higher amplitude, while some will have a lower value by default. A below-average reading for your watch's escapement suggests there is friction in the movement from a lack of lubrication.

"Beat error" is an indication of the alignment between the timekeeping components. In modern watches, a reading under to 1.0ms should be expected, while vintage watches may have a reading of up to 3.0ms.
