Belgian watchmaker Ressence has pared back its hand-less watch dial concept to create its new sartorial, entry-level Type 8.

The 43mm Type 8 features a brushed and polished grade 5 titanium case, allowing for a total weight of just 42 grams.

The simplified design reveals only hours and minutes with no lettering or numbers on its domed cobalt blue dial. The hand outlines and baton indices for hours and minutes are infilled with blue Super-LumiNova.

Ressence hides its lugs underneath an overhang, giving the impression of the strap entering the case. As with all other Ressence watches, the case is crown-less with adjustments handled via the watch’s rotating caseback.

The Type 8 drops on March 30 via Ressence retailers, priced CHF 12,500 (approximately $13,400 USD).
