The Ressence Type 2 e-Crown Concept Watch
Jan201813

Powered by both wrist movement and a series of photovoltaic cells, the Ressence Type 2 e-Crown Concept Watch straddles the line between connected and traditional timepiece. It has three operating modes: full e-Crown, in which it’s set and adjusted by app, semi-e-Crown, and mechanical mode, which lets it function like any other watch. The solar cells sit behind 10 micro-shutters in the dial that open automatically when the power is low, and the extra-bright blue Superluminova ensures you can still read the time long after the sun has set. A production version is expected to hit the market later this year.
