Made in Switzerland, Ressence Type 5X is the second piece of the collection X, it marks the first ten years of the brand. In collaboration with Eugenio Amos, founder of Automobili Amos, Type 5X features a unique watch that fuses an X, or ten in Latin, and an hourglass. Each model of the four watches from Collection X is limited to only 40 pieces, the dark olive-green color being the common thread linking all pieces. It’s a cool modern watch, dedicated to the passage of time and the functioning of turbocharged engines.
As a speed-loving racing driver, Eugenio Amos is also an eclectic collector. He is an Italian man of many passions related to cars and watches. When he came to visit Ressence studio in Antwerp, he asked the question: “Would it be possible to make a genuine drive watch that has a function related to time and cars?”. That was when the collaboration began. [Buy It Here]
