After the successful launches of XERISCOPE & HALOGRAPH Collections, XERIC presents its new SOLOSCOPE automatic limited edition timepiece. Pre-launched through the popular crowd funding platform Kickstarter, the XERIC SOLOSCOPE automatic watch boasts a single halo hand, fusing hours and minutes in a distinctive but simple display balancing function and style. This hand encircles the hour and points to the minutes. The other half of the dial exposes twin balance wheels, and the mechanics that powers the watch.
SOLOSCOPE automatic comes in a massive, rectangular 49mmX42mm, PVD coated stainless steel case having 13mm thickness. The SOLOSCOPE automatic is available in several case finishes such as Silver, Gold, Black, All black, Rose Gold and Gun Metal. Fitted with a sapphire coated K1 crystal, each timepiece is tested for a water resistance up to 30 meters. Crown is positioned at 6’o clock between the lugs.

The Soloscope Automatic is powered with a PTS S-05 Twin Balance Automatic movement sourced from China. Beating at a frequency of 21,600BPH, this 40 jewels movement offers running time up to 36 Hours.
The Soloscope is also available in quartz versions: Soloscope RQ (Round Case, 44mm) & Soloscope SQ (square case, 41mm). Equipped with the Japanese Miyota quartz movement (JS55 24HR + Seconds Timer) and dressed in the PVD stainless steel case, both models are available in different case finishes. Case thickness of both quartz models is 12mm. Fitted with a sapphire coated K1 crystal; each quartz model is tested for a water resistance up to 50 meters.
While the left half of the dial of automatic version offers the elegant view of double balances of movement in action, for quartz version, Xeric has opted for a small seconds disc and a 24 hours disc, both offering a functional display at the left half of the dial.

Offered in a limited edition of 999 pieces, each XERIC timepiece will be hand assembled allowing superb attention to detail and quality. For straps, XERIC has teamed up with the historic American Tannery HORWEEN, who manufactures highest quality leathers since 1905. The quick release leather strap of the timepiece comes fitted with stainless steel tubular buckle.

The Kickstarter campaign of XERIC SOLOSCOPE Automatic was welcomed aggressively by the lovers of fine timepieces and the project with goal of $50,000 was funded within two hours of the launch. By the time this article was published, the campaign has already secured $144,056 from 377 backers. The campaign will be running till 28 May 2016.
