Design is about taking the conventions we're all accustomed to and transforming them into something new and unique. The Ressence Type 3 ($30,000) does this in spades. Filled with a special liquid, the dial tricks the brain into seeing in two-dimensions rather than three. What you end up with is a watch face that looks as though it's displayed directly on the crystal similar to a projection screen. The traditional watch hands and crown were removed to make the watch as minimalistic as possible. Procedures like winding and changing the settings are accomplished by turning the case back. The Ressence Type 3 will be available for purchase sometime in late summer.
