Our XERISCOPE will be the most interesting watch in the room:
Fully-exposed, mechanical movement IS the hour display
Innovative time display with a unique double-sided minute Halo Hand
Automatically recharges itself with the motion of your daily life: No batteries needed
Power reserve meter
Second timezone display
Caseback crystal in an array of vibrant colors illuminating the exposed rotor as it generates power for the watch
Watch is layered in panels of surgical grade stainless steel bolted together into one solid time machine for the wrist
Bucks the trend of soon-to-be obsolete gadget watches that you could never pass on to future generations
The XERISCOPE is not high tech, it’s High Mech.
In more detail:
A beating mechanical heart, the mainspring of the watch pumps life into this complex time machine. Seeing the action of the living machine on your wrist gives a thrill no electronic gadget can.
Another rarity in timekeeping, the XERISCOPE's double-sided minute hand with two-tier arc of digits. The XERISCOPE deconstructs typical watch functionality with easy to read originality.
Wearing and winding this timepiece generates energy seen in this power reserve meter. Much like the gas tank of your car.
Need to know what time it is at home when traveling or if it's too late to call where your better half is, no problem, the second time zone can be set to any other location on the planet.
The rotor (oscillating mass) that generates the power supply to the movement, seen from the porthole caseback viewing crystal.
A design perfected with focus on style and legibility. There's nothing quite like a mechanical watch. The many parts of a machine all working in unison completely viewable from the front is a rare sight these days…
Specifications: 316L Stainless Steel Case (45mm wide x 13mm thick) Calf-skin Leather Strap (22mm width) 12 Month Warranty 5ATM Water Resistance K1 Domed Mineral Crystal (More shatter-resistant that a sapphire crystal)

XERIC watches embody the art of timekeeping by fusing exposed mechanical function with timeless form in a singular machine.
Mitch and Andrew Greenblatt founded XERIC Watches to bring complex, mechanical timepieces like the XERISCOPE collection to a broad cross-section of watch enthusiasts who dream of an affordable Mechanical. Together, the brothers have carefully curated the exceptional collection at Watchismo.com, which since 1999 has been a singular source for unique modern watches from around the world. XERIC Watches represents a natural progression of the business: from Curators to Creators of designs that reflect their experience, knowledge and passion for the truly unusual.
For years, we combed the globe to bring the world's most interesting watches to our customers at Watchismo.com. Our work identified a glaring gap in the watch market -- the need for a very cool & affordable, mechanical watch -- at a time when we were eager to act on our longstanding dream to create something that had not been done by anyone else. Together with the Watchismo Labs workshop, we designed the first line of XERIC timepieces.
• Fully-exposed, mechanical movement that IS the display: Enjoy viewing the machine on BOTH sides of the watch and reading the time via the movement itself
• Unique minute hand lives nearby, alongside a second timezone display and a power reserve meter that lets you know it's time to keep moving
• Five colorways in a timeless-yet-modern design to suit any style and proudly pass along to the next generation
• A limited edition of 100 individually numbered watches per colorway
• Automatically recharges itself with the motion of your daily life: No batteries needed. Ever.
How did we finally make Mechanical an affordable reality? We are a slim company, and don't have a lot of red tape and added costs. Yet we do have a great deal of experience with watches that informed the design of a piece that would look as exceptional today as it will in a hundred years. Finally, we found a way to produce this creation at an artisanal scale... and hope to keep it that way because our customers care to have the most unusual watch in the room.
XERIC Watches embody the art of timekeeping by fusing mechanical function with timeless form in a singular machine. Designed in California, XERIC watches are produced on an artisanal scale, making high-end mechanical features accessible to a broad cross-section of horological enthusiasts.
Each Limited Edition XERISCOPE watch takes its place in individually numbered series featuring a surgical grade stainless steel case; a fully-exposed, orbiting 12-hour mechanical movement with dual timezone display; retrograde power reserve meter; and case-back window for observing the oscillating rotor. No batteries required -- ever -- as XERIC watches generate power by the daily action of your wrist.
Know anyone who plans to leave their smart watch to their kids? Neither do we. Let's not plan for obsolescence. Let's be a part of something that was perfect to begin with, and only gets better with time. Join us by making XERISCOPE watches a timeless reality.
