I too love Ressence, this is the 2015 Type One in Rhodium that I picked up earlier this year (serial #25). A little less busy (and complicated) than the Type 3, which I like. No hands on this watch, just moving dials, so the crystal is really close to the face. It's quite easy to read at odd angles because of this. Fun watch for sure, very different.

The Ressence is a fun watch, they actually took their caseback setting idea from PITA.
I will post a picture of my Pita Oceana later today. I sold it a year or two ago but it was really a fun unique watch.

They only shipped them to 9 dealers on the entire West Coast.

They aren't shipping to Europe until spring...

I have several clients waiting for them at a premium and I still can't get them.

Wait till spring and they will be around quite a bit more but discounts will be minimal due to the trade in program Tag is offering on them two years down the line.

Wait, sorry!
Just saw you were talking about the Connected...

That is VERY hard to get and you will do well with it on eBay.

Send me a PM I have a friend looking for one if you did not eBay it yet.

You have the only Tag that is actually hard to get HaHa

I give my wife credit. This conversation started with her saying she wanted a digital watch. That was a $400 suunto. That was returned for a Suunto Kalabash for $900. That was too big so we went to the Tag for $1500. I have a feeling we will be a Rolex by Christmas.

Just keep it for your daughter's wedding. Maybe wolf's son and your daughter were meant to be and you guys could do a watch-exchange at the ceremony.

Pita Oceana
It's a thick beast
I kinda miss it.
You set it by turning the case back.

It's completely sealed.
