Is anyone interested in making this one? It looks like it was made for our Round Android Smartwatch. It’s called the RESSENCE TYPE 3BB V3.

The name RESSENCE is a neologism assimilating the words renaissance and essence. Renaissance stands for the rebirth of what is essential to a watch, to display time. RESSENCE brings a contemporary evolution of time representation using the same universal cognitive patterns learned to read time on a traditional watch.

The avant-garde design distinguishes itself through minimalism and timelessness, to approximate the archetype of a watch, emphasizing on its main purpose, to display time.

The Ressence Type 3 transports time from the dial to the crystal. The orbiting indications are bathed in a fluid that refracts light like air, so that the indications appear to be displayed directly onto the sapphire crystal – closer to the eye of the beholder. The high-contrast white indicators against the black dial appear to be projected onto the top crystal as if onto a screen. Type 3 offers a tangible feeling of being able to touch time itself.

The indications and their mechanisms are mounted inside a bubble crafted from extremely tough, anti-reflective sapphire crystal. The complication and indications follow the shape of the crystal. The mechanism (44 gears, 77 jewels and 347 components) is enclosed in an upper compartment filled with a naphtha-type liquid that has a more similar index of refraction to the sapphire crystal than air does. Refraction bends light when it passes from one material to another, e.g. air-to-glass or glass-to-air. With the fluid-filled dial indications, refraction is greatly minimized, which tricks the brain into seeing the dial in two-dimensions rather than three. A thermal valve automatically adjusts for any expansion or contraction of the fluid.

This version includes a mechanical thermal gauge to indicate the optimal running temperature for the oil. The 0.5 millimeter bi-metal spiral is mounted 0.1 mm under the discs to capture the slightest temperature changes inside the oil, which can range from -5 C to 55 C (23F to 131F).


@A1_Web nice find! I didn’t know about this very original watch.
@Lokifish_Marz the “all rotating” dial cannot be replicated but main design and many of the rotations could be. Couldn’t they?

True, but a ticking second hand was once impossible as well. The engine doesn’t support that either. Just sayin.

@SmartWatch_Ticks Could you please share the link to where I can find the “ticking second hand” clockskin? I can’t seem to locate it. Thanks

Sure. Proud to share. Tim Costello created two tickers based on Andrew Somers initial inspiration:
Andrew’s advanced design test skin which fixes background uniformity problem:
And then Andrew did this pseudo GIF thing which could work with any image (not related to ticking hands, just showing possibilities of a creative mind):
These guys are amazing. Just look over the code!
