To say that Ressence knows how to turn heads would certainly be an understatement and if you need proof, check out their first generation Type One and Type 3 models. Now today we are getting our first look at one of their most raw timepieces to-date, the Ressence Type 1 V Genesis, which was designed to celebrate the 5th Anniversary of the founding of the company. True to their earlier pieces, the Type 1 V Genesis continues with their use of nested dials tucked within a face as fresh off the assembly line as possible, even if that means there's no hand-finishing, no filling for the numerals, and no polished edges. In other words, it's meant to reflect the early Ressence experiments and prototypes, hence the name Genesis. The seemingly complex dial is actually pretty intuitive; using the long hand for minute indication, the hour hand marked by the 1-12 disc, and the day of the week in the third dial. However, the hands themselves do not all fully move; instead the entire watch face makes a full rotation every hour. The only bad news about the Ressence Type 1 V Genesis watch is that it's limited to only five pieces, but fortunately you can enjoy the extra shots after the click all you want.
