The first Kickstarter project for LIV Swiss watches’ debut timepiece, the Genesis X1 Chrono, was a huge success. Launched at the end of 2014, it was backed by more than 400 customers and collected $191,085 for initial production of the timepiece, making it one of the most successfully crowd funded Swiss watch projects ever.
Now the brand unveils its new timepiece, the LIV GX1-A Swiss Automatic Watch, the first and only Swiss Automatic wrist watch launched under $500 Kickstarter project . This online crowd funding campaign has already attracted over 590 backers who have pledged over a quarter of a million dollars.
The LIV GX1-A has been assembled in Switzerland, infusing the watch with a sense of history and tradition known for unrivaled quality and precision. Each component that has been put into the watch has been built with extreme care and workmanship. The ultimate goal was to create a superior quality timepiece, and this was achieved by the meticulous detail and thought that went into every step of the manufacturing process.
Equipped with the state of the art Sellita SW200 Swiss Movement, the LIV automatic watch displays basic timekeeping functions (hours, minutes and seconds) and date. The dial of the LIV GX1-A is easy to read, thanks to its three-dimensional multi layered construction and clean design. In order to increase the legibility during dark conditions, the indexes and hands are topped off with Super-LumiNova BGW9.
Each variation of the LIV GX1-A will be available on several matching strap options. The first 2,000 pieces of the LIV GX1-A will be limited edition pieces and individually numbered. In the GX1-A the sapphire crystal will be used on the front and back.
