RESSENCE is a watch manufacturer founded in 2010 by Benoît Mintiens in Antwerpen, Belgium. The particularity of Ressence’s patented time display system is that all graphical elements that form the dial lie in one co-planar surface very close under the sapphire glass, including the digits and the graphical hands. To indicate the time, the ‘mechanical display module’ is composed of discs and rings that orbit around each other. Because of the prominence of the minutes’ hand, the watch is sometimes referred to as a regulator model.
