If there’s one thing Genesis X1-A Automatic Watch can prove, is that you don’t need to sell your car to own a Swiss-made automatic watch. LIV Watches started out on Kickstarter with the Swiss-made chronograph and today, it is back with another Swiss-made timepiece, this time, an automatic watch that cost under $500, or $439, to be precise. Any watch connoisseur will agree that not everyday you get a Swiss-made automatic timepiece with such affordable sticker and so, it kind of wins on the get go. Most importantly, it doesn’t look cheap; in fact, it is the opposite.
LIV’s iteration of an automatic watch is snazzy. It has the contemporary flair like Corum watches with a little sci-fi-ish elements in it. Powered by 26-jewel Sellita SW200 Swiss Automatic movement, the watch boasts features like 316L stainless steel case, black IP coated screwed down bezel, large legible luminescent index on the company’s signature multi-layered dial face, date window, applied LIV logo like many luxury brands do, easy to read hands (check out the orange second hand!), screwed down crown, a choice of straps (Nato, leather, double injected silicone, or canvas style), skeleton back, sapphire crystal front and back, and water resistant up to 10ATM.
Seriously, if no mentions were made, the Genesis X1-A Automatic Watch could easily pass off as a luxury watch that cost thousands of dollars. Each Genesis X1-A Automatic Watch bears its own unique individual serial number, along with the limited edition numbering. As said, LIV isn’t a rookie in watchmaking; Genesis X1-A is the company’s second timepiece and also the outfit’s second Kickstarter campaign. The first was funded and went on to become the top rated men’s watch on Amazon. More look and video awaits after the fold.
