DESCRIPTION


The Essence Leggera is an ultra-light and uncompromisingly forward-thinking high-precision timepiece. With its subtle structure and a smooth, slightly silky feel, the 50g (1.76oz) case made of Carbon Fiber Composite was entirely developed in-house. Bezel and crown are made of stratch-proof Zirconium Oxide ceramic. The extremely thin forged carbon fiber dial contributes to the light weight and looks mesmerizing. Each single watch becomes a unique piece because of the individual dial pattern, created by machining the forged carbon fiber. On top of that, unique features, such as our patented Micro-Adjustment System, will make the Essence Leggera wear exceptionally comfortable on your wrist. 

  • The deep black color is achieved through material choice rather than surface coating like DLC or PVD, which ensures that your watch will always stay black. With a hardness that surpasses that of any traditional metal used in watchmaking, Zirconium Oxide ceramic is a scratch-proof material that will never show any signs of wear or aging. Being the most exposed components of a watch case, both bezel and crown are made of this high-tech ceramic. 
  • Hand-finished with undiluted passion, the Essence is crafted with an execution only found in high-end timepieces. The movement's accuracy has been tested and certified by COSC, the official Swiss Testing Institute for Swiss Chronometer.
  • Our patented Case Suspension System and carbon fiber composite clasp with patented Fine Adjustment System adapt to your wrist movements and daily adventures. 
  • Above a complex construction lies an elaborate case with a feather-light Carbon Composite case with titanium container, which was entirely developed in-house. 
  • You don’t have to sit in the lap of luxury to put something luxurious on your wrist. Our direct-to-consumer approach means you'll get high quality watches at a fraction of the cost of any comparable Swiss timepiece.

SUSPENSION SYSTEM

 

Since the beginning of Formex in 1999, the patented Case Suspension System has been an integral part of every single Formex timepiece. Its two main functions are:

absorbs shocks to protect the mechanical movement from heavy impacts

adds to the comfort on the wrist by adapting to the wearer’s movements

Modeled with high-performance bikes and racing cars in mind, the Formex patented case suspension system works by integrating four springs between the upper and lower watch case. The result is the ultimate shock absorption system designed to protect the mechanical movement and deliver unparalleled comfort to the wearer.

This patented case suspension system brings form and function together for Formex Swiss watches. It is functional, it is state of the art engineering and it’s unquestionably unique - all in one watch.

 

FINE-ADJUSTMENT CARBON CLASP

Your leather, rubber or nylon strap comes on our new version of the Essence clasp. More intuitive to operate, the new version is fully made out of our proprietary carbon fiber composite. The micro-adjustment is now even easier to use and can be operated while the watch is on your wrist. Lightweight, smooth to the touch, ultra-durable and highly functional, this clasp is a real piece of engineering, making your Essence even more comfortable to wear.
