Ressence Type 5X waterproof watch replicates the design of a car’s dashboard » Gadget Flow

first_imgThe Ressence Type 5X waterproof watch features a unique design with markings on the bezel that are related to a car’s dashboard. In particular, the bezel is divided into two distinct parts. The first replicates the warmup of an engine and the second dedicates itself to the Turbos cooling. The dial and sub-dials draw inspiration from cars, with the Lancia Delta Futurista car being the motivation behind the graphics. Furthermore, this waterproof watch is legible from low angles thanks to the oil. It continues working in water up to 100m and the rubber accessory makes it practical and comfortable for wearing while driving. Finally, the olive green shade on the dial softens and darkens due to the presence of oil in the dial. This creates a unique effect and improves visibility, too. – Advertisement –last_img read more
