The Ressence Type 3 is an ingeniously designed watch which uses refraction to bend the image onto the edges of a dome, allowing the wearer to read the time from the side.
At the core is the mechanism itself which is enclosed in a dome made of anti-reflective sapphire crystal. A second enclosure holds naphtha-type liquid – the unique fluid which carries the same light-bending properties as air. This construction manipulates the image to make it look as if the timepiece is literally moulded around the edges.
But at £20,700 ($32,000) you’ll be looking to at least sell your children for this watch.
