We've finally taken the leap from Curators to Creators: The Watches.com Brothers introduce our own watch brand XERIC and the launch of the XERISCOPE Orbiting Mechanical Watch on Kickstarter.
For 15 years, we've scoured the globe to find the most interesting watches. It is clear that the world needs an unusual & affordable mechanical watch… So we've decided to make one.
Our XERISCOPE design will be the most interesting watch in the room:
Fully-exposed, mechanical movement IS the display
Innovative time display with a unique double sided minute hand
Automatically recharges itself with the motion of your daily life: No batteries needed - Ever
Bucks the trend of soon-to-be obsolete gadget watches that you could never pass on to future generations
With enough support from early backers, it's just a matter of time before a complex and stylish mechanical watch is an affordable reality.
Take a look and you’ll see why XERISCOPE watches by XERIC will stop strangers in their tracks for a glance at your wrist:
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
Six colorways in a timeless-yet-modern design to suit any style and proudly pass along to the next generation
Automatically recharges itself with the motion of your daily life: No batteries needed. Ever.
A very rare mechanical function, the hour hand on the XERISCOPE Automatic is also the watch movement - fully exposed from the dial of the watch.
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. The XERISCOPE is classic, yet very modern. 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...
Finally, a complicated mechanical watch that's also affordable!
Stainless Steel Case (45mm wide x 13mm thick)
Genuine Leather Strap (22mm width)
12 Month Warranty
5ATM Water Resistance
Great for Women too!

Purchased this for my working wife who loves it. She gets many compliments. Point is, the watch face is not too big women and it makes a very attractive and professional looking accessory.
stunning, but I don't know what time it is!

it's a beautiful watch. quite eye-catching. looks like a much more expensive watch.
but it is difficult to read the time in anything other than bright light. the hour indicator is very difficult to see (I usually look at the second time zone hand - easier to see). I'm still learning to read the little loops circling around to indicate the minutes (difficult to tell the inner and outer rings of numbers apart at a glance).
but it's a beauty!

I have been buying watches from Watches.com for several years...always excellent, from customer service, to delivery...easy returns, if needed.
Outstanding Customer Service.

I had an unfortunate thing happen with the links for two of the watches I ordered (the issue was with Nixon, not with watches.com just to be absolutely clear) and after being left stranded by Nixon I contacted Angela with watches.com who fixed the problem and was friendly and courteous the entire time. I would have 100% been busying the rest of my watches from them due to her efforts alone but on top of their customer service being outstanding, the products arrived on time and looked absolutely gorgeous when unpacked. 5 stars doesn't do them justice.

Excellent service. Product was as expected. Had to return however but pleased with their responsiveness.

Great selection of watches, really good prices. Fast shipping is just as important to me when buying from someone. Watches.com has fast shipping, and good communications on that shipping. I would highly recommend watches.com to anyone who has a watch fetish. Thanks.
Great quailty and excellent price

The price was so good that I was worried it would be something different than it appeared, but the watch was exactly what I had seen elsewhere for much more money. Great quality and excellent price. It was here lightening quick! I will definitely use watches.com again.
