Frequently Asked Questions
Good question. 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 high-quality from the start.
1. Miyota's top of the line 90S5 Automatic high-beat movement with 42 hour power reserve.
2. In-House proprietary reversion module that reverses the rotation of the hands so it reads correctly when the movement is inverted.
3. Custom American Horween Leather straps with built-in, quick release springbars.
4. Sapphire crystal on top crystal to protect against daily wear and tear.
5. 316L Stainless Steel (PVD coating on plated versions)
6. Back filled Super-LumiNova lume hands on all colors
Some Kickstarter watch campaigns will start with an inferior case, generic 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 affordable, discounted prices.Last updated:
Unfortunately we are unable to accommodate requests for specific limited edition numbers because multiple people could request the same number. There are only 999 units (per color) of the Invertor. That means there are only 5000 of these Invertor Automatic watches that will exist. In a world of almost 7.5 billion people, each backer will be one in a million. Cool, right?Last updated:
No, the watches will be distributed randomly. This way every backer has a chance at low numbers even if you only found out about the Kickstarter campaign on the last day. Earliest backers get the benefit of the watch delivering first as well as the lower pricing.Last updated:
During the Kickstarter campaign, we will send you a questionnaire for you to choose your color. Scroll down to the Rewards section of the campaign wall for color options.
After the Kickstarter campaign ends, you will finalize your choice and provide your shipping information during the post-campaign final survey. Surveys are generally sent 4 weeks after the campaign ends.Last updated:

Question #1: The leather straps feature a built-in quick release system which allows them to easily be switch without any tools so you can switch it for a different strap.
Question #2: You will have the option in the post-campaign survey to purchase additional straps at a Kickstarter backer discounted price. We're making them very affordable for you so you can accessorize to your heart's desire.Last updated:
Yes, we do have plans to offer additional straps after the campaign ends. During the final survey backers can purchase additional straps at a discounted rate.Last updated:
Possibly, but it depends on your country. We ship from the USA. Most backers of previous campaigns paid little to no duties. With FREE SHIPPING to most countries, a small tax doesn't seem so bad; it all depends on your country though. We will do everything in our power to minimize any taxes due, but we can’t forecast what those might be. You can check with your local government on their duties rate if this a concern for you.Last updated:
