The Formex Essence is the brand’s take on a dress watch, while still keeping some of their design DNA in play. This takes the form of the hex head details. This shows up around the bezel, and on the crown. For the bezel hexes, those most commonly are what house the spring-loaded mechanism that protects the case (more on that in a future review). This is still the case here as well, just in a much stealthier manner than we’re used to. Visually, however, the case shape and details do keep with what the brand has done before. They’ve also put some alternating surfaces finishes in place (the bevel are polished, and the rest is brushed) which is a treatment I like, given that it keeps fingerprints and smudges down.
