XERIC has created a new timepiece in the form of an automatic watch called the Soloscope, which is currently being promoted over on the Kickstarter crowdfunding website and has already raised over $329,000 in funds, thanks to over 840 backers with still 30 days left remaining on the campaign.
The XERIC Soloscope is an affordable automatic watch priced at just $199, view the video below to learn more about this unique wrist worn timepiece that is available in a number of different finishes to suit your style and taste and will retail at $399 when officially launched.
The creators explain more about the inspiration behind the Soloscope and its construction.
We live in a time when everyone has the same stuff, racing for the latest phone, fastest laptop and most advanced gadget. Every single one of these devices will soon be obsolete. Your WATCH, on the other hand, is a chance to reflect your value of striking design and timeless mechanics, and that is why we hope you’ll join us in bringing the Limited Edition SOLOSCOPE Automatic to life. Let the latest and boldest mechanical watch by XERIC remind you — and everyone around you — that you are making your own mark. It’s time to go SOLO.
The SOLOSCOPE Automatic is mechanical, so the motion of your wrist is all it needs for power. This personal time machine will be right there on your wrist through all the forced upgrades of your gadgets and their planned obsolescence. At XERIC Watches, we are taking a step back to classic mechanical watches, affordably priced, so that you can move forward in your individuality. We believe our creations focus on what really matters when you’re the one with most striking watch in your world.
The SOLOSCOPE Automatic separates display from mechanics. It has a single hand, fusing hours and minutes in a distinctive but simple display balancing function and style. This hand encircles the hour and points to the minutes. The other half of the face exposes twin balance wheels, and the mechanics that powers the watch in reaction to motion of your wrist.
A watch isn’t complete without a great leather strap. We’ve proudly teamed up with the historic American Tannery HORWEEN for some undeniably awesome time belts!
