When I heard the news that one of my favourite independent watch brands, RESSENCE was collaborating with MR PORTER. I felt like guy who realised peanut butter and jam were perfect partners. That feeling when two great things come together. MR P have led the way when it comes to that potent mix of digital content and watch sales online and RESSENCE have captured the hearts and minds of even those in Silicon Valley with their forward thinking design.
Today we see the launch of two exclusive limited-edition timepieces, available only at MRPORTER.COM, from the June 20th. MR PORTER and RESSENCE have launched the RESSENCE Type 1 MRP in two varieties – the Type 1PN MRP Grade 5 polished Titanium with Night Blue metallic dial in a 42mm case, limited to 12 timepieces, and the Type 1PW MRP 18k Rose Gold with Sandblasted. White dial in a 42mm case, limited to 6 timepieces – both housing RESSENCE’s in-house ROCS 1 module. This is the first time RESSENCE and MR PORTER have partnered together on an exclusive and limited-edition collaboration since MR PORTER introduced RESSENCE to its growing fine watch offering in 2015.
“After meeting Benoît at a watch trade fair a few years ago, we instantly felt RESSENCE, with its unique and ground-breaking timepieces, were a perfect fit for MR PORTER. Since the partnership began in 2015, Ressence has consistently been a key seller and favourite for our customers and readers – which sparked the vision of creating a limited-edition timepiece exclusive to MR PORTER. We are thrilled to launch this collection with such an integral independent fine watch brand in the industry.”
