Oil Filled Watches Anyone?

Hey Crunchers! So, I've been seeing these types of watches while surfing the webs. Does anyone here own one? Does anyone want one of these?

Sound off in the comments馃槑

I have always liked the looks of how it brings the dial to the surface of the crystal...but I can't get past the one bubble always left inside the watch that moves around. Could work good as a level though. I have seen some people do it with the duro and got the bubble out and it always made me want to try. I just don't want to deal with the mess when I have to change the battery though. Love the looks of them though and they peak my interest when I see them

Ressence makes such cool watches, man. It鈥檚 too bad I鈥檒l probably never own one. 馃槅

I love the idea, the look, the execution; which means I don't love the price. LOL

Seriously though, the intelligence, research & dedication to think of, develop & bring these to market is impressive.

I hydro mod some of my Casios, that's about as close as I'll get to #ressence. #sinn also just released oil filled watches recently with the Hydro.

Check this out.

I have tried on many and almost pulled the trigger. Great watches, i am scared of the service on one of these

Sinn u50 hydro is a bombshell oil watch. Any Ressence is a killer, if you can afford it.

They seem cool but what function do they serve?

AFAIK, Ressence uses a pressure regulator to account for the expansion and contraction of the oil. This eliminates the bubble in Ressence models.

Also, the Ressence is an automatic. No batteries. The dial and oil are contained in a completely separate compartment from the movement. No mess even during service. The movement uses magnets to rotate the discs in the oil filled bubble.
