Ressence is an independent watch manufacturer that was founded in 2010. It is owned and managed by Benoît Mintiens and is produced in Antwerpen, Belgium
Benoît is responsible for the conceptualisation and design of the watches and associated marketing. The brand name is a neologism based on the words Renaissance and Essence.
The logo of Ressence represents a universal symbol of humanism, the hand.
The hand is oriented horizonally; like a hand that is reaching out. The watch as a product is sending out a strong message about the mindset of the owner.
On a product level, a Ressence dial has given a contemorary interpretation of
what has always been considered as a dogma is watchmaking, the hands of the dial.
