Ressence Type 2 E-Crown Explained By Founder Benoît Mintiens (Video)
The Watches TV’s Marc André Deschoux interviews Benoît Mintiens, founder and CEO of Ressence, whose Type 2 e-crown is 100 percent mechanical but features an automated crown that automatically winds and sets the time.
It’s worth repeating: the Ressence Type 2 e-crown is powered by a mechanical automatic movement, but its e-crown stops the movement when the watch is taken off. So, really, it never needs to be wound again.
“This is a watch for my generation and those that come after us,” Mintiens explains. It certainly combines the best of all possible worlds in terms of timekeeping: mechanics, emotion, and extreme precision using modern-day digital technology.
