About this project
The Xeric Evergraph Automatic - Inspired by the past, designed for the future.
Nothing withstands the test of time better than great design. Ideas come and go, and trends fade, but something well-crafted will leave its mark forever.
We've launched three successful Kickstarter campaigns prior to the Evergraph. Back in 2013 with the Xeriscope, 2015 with the Halograph, and 2016 with the Soloscope. Our Kickstarter backers are playing an important role in shaping the future of the watch industry and design.
The Evergraph features the workhorse Japanese Miyota 82S0 automatic movement, American Horween leather (or solid stainless steel straps), a sapphire-coated K1 crystal, and Xeric's signature time display. Production will be limited to only 999 pieces per color.
To bring the Evergraph Automatic to reality, we need to know that we're on the right track with support from like-minded people like you who take pride in standing out from the crowd.
Those who have supported our past three Kickstarter campaigns often tell us they're tired of flamboyant watches that merely express status as well as boring watches that say nothing at all.
We are finding new ways to offer affordable, limited edition mechanical watches to fill that void. The Evergraph Automatic is our most classic-yet-modern design to date.
The spirit of the Evergraph comes from the city of San Francisco. This iconic city seamlessly contrasts the world of yesteryear with a modern core of technology and design. We wanted to imagine what a Xeric watch might have looked like if we designed it a hundred years ago but also maintain an aesthetic that will look just as timeless a hundred years into the future.

Although reading the time appears complex, the Evergraph is actually quite simple to read. The inner rings show the hours, and the outer rings show the minutes.
All Xeric watches begin with a number 2 pencil, piles of white paper, and a passion for rethinking traditional watch design. We’ve spent years and years obsessing about cool antique gadgets we collect, vintage concept cars, and telling time in unique yet stylish ways. It's an exercise of sorts for us—to take something apart and put it back together again. But our secret lies in mixing all those 'parts' up and creating something unexpected.
Our manufacturing partner has confirmed delivery can be made within this timeframe. We are confident we'll meet this expected product release of July 2017.
Xeric has been featured in some of the most well-respected publications in the world. Here's just a sampling Xeric in the press.
You may also know us as Watches.com (formerly Watchismo). Xeric is shaking up the watch world by designing limited edition mechanical timepieces like you've never seen before. After all, we are watch collectors first and foremost, and it's our passion to create unexpected timepieces.
Time to be Different. That's the motto at Watches.com. Founded by brothers Mitch & Andrew Greenblatt who are modern horological enthusiasts with a passion for unique timepieces. They'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 says a lot about you and helps you stand out.
Watchismo has acquired and merged into Watches.com. We have big plans and this is just the beginning. It's been an amazing 18+ years offering the world's largest online collection of diverse & unusual watches at Watchismo and it's about to get even more fun. We believe that the modern watch represents more than just a functional mechanism to tell time. The watch is a unique form of art, design and personal expression. We've had a long-standing mission of providing unique and affordable timepieces to adventurous enthusiasts as yourself.

Risks and challenges
Prior to this Kickstarter campaign, our working prototypes have been rigorously tested and all watches featured are working prototypes to near-production quality.
We are confident that we will meet our projected delivery dates. We have built in extra time for potential delays in the manufacturing process and expect to ship by the projected dates. Our backers will be in the loop as we communicate updates at every stage of the process.
Our manufacturers stand ready to activate production as soon as we meet our Kickstarter funding goal.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
