Xeric Halograph Automatic
Following the successful launch of the Xeriscope in 2013, which was the most funded mechanical watch in Kickstarter history, Xeric are back with a fresh take on timekeeping for 2015. Introducing the striking and truly original limited edition Halograph Automatic.
The main thing you’ll notice about the Halograph are its dials which Xeric are calling ‘Halo Hands’. While we’ve never seen a design quite like it, it look appears as though it will still be incredibly easy to read.
As the Halo Hands float over the four, dimensional, hemicycle time display arcs, they encircle the numbers for the time. The inner arcs display the hours and the outer arcs displays the minutes. I think we may have made it sound more complicated than it actually is… Sorry about that.
It’s powered through a rotor generator which can be seen through a crystal porthole on the back of the case, which mean the Halograph also doesn’t require any batteries or tiresome updates to do its work. It’s powered by your daily life, storing up to 36 hours of energy from a simple flick of your wrist. Easy.
Xeric watches are designed in California and say they produce their watches “on an artisanal scale, making high-end mechanical features accessible to a broad cross-section of horological enthusiasts.” By staying a small tightknit company, Xeric can reduce their overheads and provide premium quality timepieces for average Joes like us!
Our favourite is the Halograph Automatic in Silver which has Blue and Red accents on the dials. It’s playful but still sophisticated – just like us! You can also get your Halograph in Rose Gold, Gun Metal, Black or Gold. Early birds to the Kickstarter funded product can get one for as little as $189 (£125) or $369 (£240) for one of the first 100 individually numbered ones. We love these so get yourself over to the Xeric Halograph Website.
