Xeric Trappist-1 Moonphase

With this new watch Xeric pays tribute to NASA’s recent ground-breaking discovery of the Trappist-1 solar system – a planetary system of seven planets resembling our own, located 12 parsecs (39 light years) away from us and orbiting a red dwarf star slightly larger than Jupiter.
The Trappist-1 Moonphase watch comes with some unusual design features. The large Cupola grille floating over the dial provides a window into the depths of space and time as distant planets slowly come into view amongst the star riddled void.
Two Super-LumiNova™ planets indicate hours and minutes on the dial, and the center viewing window shows the current moon phase. The watch features a domed crystal made from Hesalite, a material that was initially developed for NASA.
Hesalite is still used for watch crystals on all space missions due to its rigidity and durability even in the harshest environments of space. Additionally, the straps are made from U.S. Horween leather and the ridges are modeled after texturized space gloves. Each colorway will be limited to 2017 pieces and each watch will be individually numbered.
Xeric launched an online crowd funding campaign for the Trappist-1 Moonphase watch on October 25 on Kickstarter.
