Created by industrial designer Benoit Mintiens, the RESSENCE Type 3 Watch turned the cloistered world of horology upside down during its debut at BASELWORLD 2013 this Spring. Completely encapsulated in a fluid-filled case made of anti-reflective sapphire crystal, there are no crowns or buttons. Instead, the RESSENCE Type 3 utilized its case back, also made of sapphire crystal, to wound and time adjustment. An engineering marvel which also propagates the ideals of minimalism, some fortunate media members were able to see this unique timepiece in person and for a hands-on demonstration during BASELWORLD 2013. For the rest of us, we will have to wait till later on this year, that is if you can get over the watch’s price tag of $30,000 USD.
