We set out to design a watch that visually displays elements of our travel through time. The Atlasphere references 18th-century globemakers who began showcasing celestial maps on glass spheres surrounding the earth.
Xeric has been featured on some of the largest publications in the world for bringing unusual, "haute horology" designs to you at affordable prices.
Choose the reward based on the model (Automatic or GMT) and color choice (Red, Blue, Gunmetal, Gold, or Rose Gold). The earlier you back the sooner you get your Atlasphere. The early delivery rewards will ship in January. The second batch can be completed late April 2019.
We value Kickstarter as a way to reach those unique individuals who share our dream of making highly unusual mechanical watches affordable. We know they're not for everyone but we feel a kinship with Kickstarter culture and the visionary people who support alternative concepts like our mechanical timepieces.
Join us by making the Atlasphere Automatic watch a modern reality. If you think the Atlasphere is as cool as we do, please share it with your friends. We appreciate your support!
“Distinctively cool. I love this watch. Big enough to be noticed, small enough to wear as a dress watch, cool enough to get attention, and classy enough to wear anywhere. It's currently the coolest watch in my collection.” -Mel A.
"This is a gorgeous piece of mechanical art! I am so happy with my purchase. Reading the time is easy. Thanks for designing such a beautiful watch." -Gary O.
"This baby turns heads and is fun to wear." -Scott
“Mesmerising. This watch feels like it is connected to something deeper. The automatic movement and the elegant positioning of its hour and minute hands is mesmerising to behold. This watch definitely attracts the right kind of attention: curiosity. I really love it. Consider me a new Xeric fan.” -Sean R.
Xeric was started from a passion to push the boundaries of design and create unique, yet affordable time machines. Watches like you've never seen before. Xeric is one of the most successful brands on Kickstarter. We started out as watch collectors, and it’s our passion to create unexpected timepieces.
The team behind Xeric is also responsible for Watches.com (formerly Watchismo). Founded by brothers Mitch & Andrew Greenblatt who are modern horological enthusiasts with a passion for unique timepieces. We've been scouring the globe since 1999 discovering obscure, unusual brands that you’ve probably never heard of as well as carefully curating the brands you love. A watch is a unique form of art, design and personal expression. They have a long-standing mission of providing exceptional and affordable timepieces to adventurous enthusiasts. See all Xeric watches and other men's watches at Watches.com.
A great design that will stand the test of time, the Atlasphere is far more than just a timepiece. The Atlasphere will be a keepsake of past adventures and travels that can be handed down for generations to come. The world is in your hands so take the time to make the most of it.
Risks and challenges
We vigorously test our working prototypes before bringing production-ready designs to Kickstarter. In fact, over the last two years we've gone through multiple revisions to get the Atlasphere ready for production.
We are confident that we will meet or beat our estimated delivery dates. Our backers will be in the loop as we communicate updates at every stage of the process.
Our manufacturers stand ready to start production as soon as we meet our Kickstarter funding goal.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
