The Only Mechanical Watch perfectly readable underwater
Ressence, the watch company that keeps challenging the status quo of mechanical watchmaking, is excited to announce the release of the Type 5N. A new example of the oil-filled Type 5 watch featuring a deep night blue dial.
The genesis of the Type 5N starts with the Ressence Orbital Convex System (ROCS), the unique in- house developed (and patented) horological unit featuring an ever-changing dial that continually orbit around one another. The purpose is a more efficient way of telling time. Information is displayed on a single surface, much like words on a piece of paper, making for improved readability. This differs than that of a traditional watch, where the hands and dial are layered on one another producing an uneven viewing plane. Composed of 142 parts, the gears in the ROCS calculates the hours, runner (90 seconds) taking only the minute as a reference from the automatic movement.
The Type 5N wheights 87 grams
The TYPE 5N meets the requirements of ISO 6425 and is able to withstand extreme conditions. Creating this world-proof watch was therefore not without its challenges – allowing to further position Ressence at the forefront of 21st century watchmaking. Ressence ingeniously designed a two-chamber system inside the Type 5 to keep the mechanical movement and oil separate. The lower chamber is comprised of the customized automatic movement and the upper chamber is hermetically-sealed with the ROCS display module bathing in 37.5ml of oil.
As such with the two-chamber system, there is no direct mechanical link between the watch’s movement and the ROCS. To accommodate this, the Type 5N uses a magnetic transmission to tie the modules together. This is done by connecting several micro-magnets to each other and positioning them in both the oil-filled upper chamber and the dry lower chamber. In order to compensate for oil volume fluctuation (dependent on temperature), the watch is fitted with a system of seven small bellows that expand and contract dependent on the increase and decrease of the oil’s volume. For a charming visual cue – the system is indirectly connected to the temperature gauge on the dial so the user can see a representation of the bellows capacity in action.
Intuitive in viewing and motion, understated in its color scheme, the Type 5N is a perfect example of 21st century watchmaking according to Ressence. The Type 5N eliminates visual complexities and superfluous elements to create a timeless diving watch that is functional and inspires the imagination.
