The Ressence Type 2 e-Crown Concept watch is the perfect mix of traditional and technological. It is powered with wrist movement in addition to a series of photovoltaic cells, with three operating modes to choose from. Full e-Crown allows the watch to be set and adjusted by the app, mechanical mode allows it to be set and behave like any old-fashioned watch, and semi e-Crown which is a blend of the two. There are ten microshutters in the dial that open automatically to show solar cells that can power the watch when the power’s getting low. Even in the absence of sunlight, the e-Crown has you covered, with an extra-bright blue Superluminova light to read your watch long into the night. Look out for this impeccable watch later in 2018.
