The Type 5X is the second piece of the collection X. Collection X marks the first 10 years of the brand. Visually we have created a dedicated symbol for the collection that is the fusion of an X, or ten in Latin, and an hourglass. It sits proudly on the hour disc of the Type 5 X.
A speed-loving racing driver, eclectic collector, Eugenio Amos is an Italian man of many passions – as long as they are related to cars and watches. Eugenio is an entrepreneur and a visionary. A notable feat was his creation of a car that the international automotive community instantaneously felt in love with: the Automobili Amos Lancia Delta Futurista.
The collaboration started in the form of a question when Eugenio Amos came to visit the Ressence studio in Antwerp: “Would it be possible to make a genuine driver watch that has a function related to time and cars”? That was the challenge.
