Ressence LogoFounded in 2010 by Benoît Mintiens, RESSENCE is a unique horological start-up creating innovative mechanical fine-watches. RESSENCE represents an independent way of thinking about fine watchmaking – no less expertly hand-crafted, but with an industrial design philosophy that seeks to be progressive with a clear, graphic aesthetic that is decidedly 21st century. RESSENCE’s starting point is the deconstruction of the traditional watch in order to express Time in the purest possible way. Its original concept, summed up by its motto #BEYONDHANDS, is to replace the conventional horological hands with rotating discs for an intuitive reading of the Time. All watches share the same inimitable DNA.
