Unlike other Kickstarter campaigns, we don't design an inferior watch with built-in "stretch goals" to get to the quality we would want for a Xeric watch. We launch with a watch that is exactly how we would want it to be from the start.
1. Premium Japanese Miyota 8 Series Automatic movement
2. Horween Leather from a historic American institution.
3. Sapphire-coated K1 crystal
4. 316L Stainless Steel (PVD coating on plated versions)
We could have said the Evergraph Automatic will be made with a brass case, faux leather and stock mineral crystal to start (which aren't necessarily bad) and then set arbitrary stretch goals for backers to get the watch upgraded, but that's not our philosophy. We make a product that we're proud to wear from the get-go and we offer the rewards at prices that are very low when comparable watches using the same movement and specs can sell for over $1k.
