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.
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 watchå_åÑ_ 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
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 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.
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, yet an easy read.
Wearing and winding this timepiece generates energy seen in this power reserve meter. Much like the gas tank of your car.
Far from home? 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!
