After the first release of the Ressence Zero Series in 2010, this young Belgian innovative brand has been quiet for a long time. The technical start-up has hampered delivery, however, things have gone smoothly since the respected watchmaker Ludivic Ballouard got involved in the assembly.
Ressence ‘softly released’ two new versions of the Zero Series. This watch also caused a storm in the horological world, because it is very similar to Harry Winston’s Opus X. Now let’s look at the black-coated version of the Type 1001 and the Type 1005 with a brown dial.
The picture above shows the new Type1005, the fifth version of the Ressence Zero Series. The brown dial is a coated aluminum dial, which is the same base material used in Ressence watches. This is done to reduce weight. This unique construction is easier to rotate without affecting the timing rate.
The dial is equipped with a spray-painted minute hand, and has three sub-dials (hour, second and AM / PM) that rotate around its own axis. Both models have a diameter of 42mm and, like other Zero Series series, are equipped with the ETA2824 movement.
