If you are watch collector, you will not want to miss the Xeric The Invertor. Why? Because it is winding automatic that has an inverted winding automatic rotor which allows you to admire the beauty of the inner workings while wearing the watch. You can’t do that we any conventional watch even if it has a glass back. I mean, you can, but you just can’t admire with the watch still strapped to your wrist. Xeric is the world’s first independent watch with inverted movement to sell for $20K, or should I say, under $500 if you grab it on Kickstarter within the 7 days or so.
In order to make this inversion possible without having to read the time backwards, a new proprietary module has to be designed for the Citizen’s Miyota 9000 Calibre Automatic Movement. The result is actually very glorious. Especially for people who appreciate the inner workings of a watch. Seriously, this might just be the coolest watch we have seen so far and at just $489, it is just about the most affordable inverted automatic watch ever.
Other notables include 42-hour power reserve, sapphire and Hesalite crystal, water resistance to 3 ATM (30 meters or 100 feet), Super-LumiNova filled hands and rotors, and Horween full grain leather straps. If you are enamored by the Xeric The Invertor, you may want to act fast and back it on Kickstarter cos’ the campaign has just 7-ish days to go. The campaign is already over 2,000 percent (not a typo!) funded and so, yes, your pledge for product is a pre-order which the Xeric aims to fulfill in November 2019. Have a look at the pitch video to learn more.
