The Essence combines elegance and robustness in a Swiss mechanical high precision timepiece. With its patented Case Suspension System, waterproof case, COSC-certified Swiss Automatic movement and flawless hand-finished surfaces, the Formex Essence is a study in what it means to have the best of both worlds. On top of that, unique features, such as our patented Micro-Adjustment System, will make the Essence wear exceptionally comfortable on your wrist. Every chronometer movement has been meticulously tested for its accuracy by COSC, the Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute. Only 3% of the entire Swiss watch production goes through this 15-day certification process.
The dial consists of a whole piece of the inner shell layer of a Pinctada maxima, also called “silver-lipped pearl shell”, which can reach a diameter of up to 30 centimeters. While mother-of-pearl is said to be fragile, it is in fact one of the strongest shields that nature has produced. Pearls are also made of this material. The result is a beautifully sparkling and iridescent pearly white appearance that remains hidden in the dark but reveals its fullest beauty when the light hits the dial.
The Essence ThirtyNine is powered by a COSC-certified Sellita SW200 caliber, which in this version is equipped with high-quality components such as a Glucydur balance, which is exceptionally hard and stable, very resistant to deformation and has antimagnetic properties. The movement is fully decorated, has thermally blued screws and is wound by a skeletonized rotor specially made by Formex. Each caliber in the ThirtyNine collection is subjected to a meticulous 15-day test by the COSC (the Official Swiss Chronometer Institute) to ensure exceptional levels of mechanical accuracy and precision.
