We’ve always been fans of mechanical timepieces. The beauty of a simple, yet complex machine such as the Xeric Halograph Automatic Watch ($370.00) can never be matched by a modern, battery-powered smartwatch.
Following the successful launch of the Xeriscope in 2013 (the most funded mechanical watch in Kickstarter history), California’s XERIC Watches is back with a fresh take on timekeeping. This beautiful automatic timepiece is produced on an artisanal scale, making high-end mechanical features affordable for most horological enthusiasts. The Halograph has a unique, but easy to read display under a domed sapphire-coated crystal, that features two Halo Hands which float over four, dimensional, hemicycle arcs. Automatically wound through kinetic movement that can be admired through the caseback porthole viewing crystal, the watch is said to be able to store 36 hours of energy from a flick of the wrist. The stunning Xeric Halograph Automatic watches come in four colorways: Silver, Rosegold, Black and Gold, and the first 300 come engraved with specific numbering. via
