The Ressence Type 5 L is not just a diver’s watch; it’s a conversation piece that embodies innovation and style. Known for their smooth, pebble-like design and oil-filled dials, Ressence watches eliminate internal reflections, making the time readable from any angle. The Type 5 L goes a step further with a fully luminescent dial that shines in the dark and under deep water conditions.

Founder Benoît Mintiens highlights the watch’s dual role as both a tool and a conversation starter, thanks to its superior legibility and unique design. Crafted in a 46mm x 15.5mm titanium case, the Type 5 L houses the Ressence Orbital Convex System automatic movement with a 36-hour power reserve. This robust piece comes with either a grey fabric strap with yellow leather lining or a blue rubber strap.

The Type 5 L meets the ISO 6425 standard with a 100m depth rating, featuring a unidirectional rotating bezel perfect for diving. The case, consisting of two separate and sealed chambers, has the upper one filled with 3.57 milliliters of oil. This design, combined with a double-domed sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating, ensures that the dial remains legible from any angle.

The dial itself is a mix of titanium gray, light gray Super-LumiNova, and hints of yellow and blue for added flair. Yellow markers indicate 15, 30, 45, and 60 minutes, enhancing readability. The Ressence watch also includes a temperature gauge for the oil inside, ensuring functionality under extreme conditions.

Priced at $38,400, the Ressence Type 5 L is more than just a timepiece: it’s a blend of meticulous craftsmanship and cutting-edge technology, making it a must-have for watch enthusiasts and collectors alike.
