The Xeric SOLOSCOPE Unveiled! An Unusual & Mechanical Watch Live Now on Kickstarter


The Early Bird Rewards Will Sell Out Fast!

When you put on your watch in the morning, does it reflect who you are? Well, it should!
We are so proud of this new limited edition design and can't wait to let you see it for yourself. Please check out our Kickstarter campaign for the third collection from XERIC WATCHES, our very own in-house watch brand. If you're receiving this email, you're being told before anyone else that we've launched -- so you can get first dibs on the Early Bird offers that will be priced well below retail MSRP. The team at Xeric Watches and Watchismo are excited to show you what we’ve created with our passion for unusual design & mechanical automatic watches.

We live in a time when everyone has the same stuff ; racing for the latest phone, fastest laptop and most advanced gadget. Every single one of these devices will soon be obsolete. Your WATCH, on the other hand, is a chance to reflect your value of striking design and timeless mechanics, and that is why we hope you'll join us in bringing the SOLOSCOPE Automatic to life. Let the latest and boldest mechanical watch by XERIC remind you -- and everyone around you -- that you are making your own mark. It's time to go SOLO.

New Mr. Jones Limited Edition Bridge - Only 100 Worldwide, Made In London


Limited Edition

Made In London

Individually Numbered

Only 100 Pieces Worldwide

The Bridge has a wonderfully simplified depiction of the time - each hour is marked by a little character crossing over a bridge in the centre of the dial. The watch has the feel of a tiny theatre - the eye is drawn in by the different layers of printing on the face of the watch.
The design was inspired by a visit to the Togetsukyo Bridge in Kyoto, Japan. The bridge is a well known landmark and you can observe the swelling and subsiding of the crowds who come to visit over the course of the day. The bridge is also the site of an important initiation for local children: boys and girls receive a blessing from a local temple and then make their way across the bridge under orders to do so without looking back. If one ignores this instruction, it is said to bring bad luck as a result. Fortunately none of the characters on the watch ever cast a glance behind them, so you are assured of good luck with this time piece!

The Bridge was printed and assembled at the Mr. Jones workshop in glorious south London. The dial is printed on white birch veneer to give a warm, living feeling to the piece. The watch is produced in an edition of 100 pieces.

SEVENFRIDAY Watches: The V-Series M-Series & P-Series


The Best Time Of Our Lives

Doing what we love for a living has some serious benefits and even more privileges. Last month, we were lucky enough to get to know the SEVENFRIDAY team at the Baselworld Watch Fair in Switzerland. These guys are cooler than cool and their watches are mind-blowingly spectacular in person. What they've been able to achieve with quality, value, finishing and style is second to no one.
Now in three amazing collections including the newest V-Series with its innovative new time system, The M-Series with dimensional disc configuration and the original P-Series that started it all.
SEVENFRIDAY derives its motivation for the new V-Series from Industrial Essence, Revolution and Engines.
Engineering progress constantly strives for higher performance, so with SEVENFRIDAY registering a few more digits up the meter scale. This idea is reflected in the design of the Hours indication as an industrial gauge, creating a new way to read the time. Discover highlights like a brand new case shape, new visual complication, fast strap changer and an embedded NFC chip that allows authentication of official SEVENFRIDAY watches.
A highly avant-garde collection, the M-series offers an ingenious approach to timekeeping. Composed of 6 layers and ten applied parts, these stunning M-series timepieces are both intricate and stylish. Each watch features a unique dial displaying three, customized, internal discs- outer, middle and inner- supplying the hour, minutes and seconds readings respectively.
The original P-Series is inspired by industrial entities from tools, machines and engines to the plants that house these contraptions, 11 applied parts are fused to create them. A by-product of SevenFriday's innovative design process timepieces from the P-Series collection are imbued with a provocative stylishness that is complemented by the high level of mechanical performance produced by the Miyota 82S7 automatic movement.
