Benoît Mintiens, founder and creative mind behind Ressence, is an industrial designer who already had a portfolio of designs to his credit – high-speed trains, aircraft cabins, medical devices, leather goods and even hunting guns before he ever designed a watch.
His approach to fine-watchmaking is entirely fresh and undeniably contemporary. The mind-set of an industrial designer like Benoît is to adopt a methodology that guarantees a holistic approach considering the end user as the ultimate evaluation criterion.
At RESSENCE, the user is at the core. Mechanical fine-watchmaking is the vector to express our concept as we design our watches from the exterior to the interior.
