Introduced in 2015 by Xeric , the original Halograph Automatic was the most funded mechanical watch campaign on Kickstarter. Now, Xeric proposes an improved and refined version of this watch. Premium Horween® leather, upgraded Miyota® movement and a sapphire crystal make this watch a significant update to the original.
The Halograph II Automatic features Xeric’s innovative signature display and halo hands which float over the arcs to encircle the time. The inner arcs display the hours and the outer arcs display the minutes. The time can easily be read through the two halo hands. As the halo reaches the end of its track, a new halo appears on the opposite side, similar to a retrograde display.
Two secondary displays were integrated into the movement grille. The day/night window on the left displays your current position relative to the sun. The window on the right is a running second display.
These features are printed on transparent discs for an unobstructed view of the large open balance wheel. Select models of the Halograph II Automatic have luminous hands and dials.
The Miyota 82S7’s exposed balance wheel gives a glimpse into the mechanical engine that keeps track of time. With the Halograph II movement upgrade, the new watch can achieve an additional 6 hours of power reserve for a total of 42 hours.
The fully integrated lugless design gives the watch a modern and clean update from the original Halograph. The lugless design tucks the strap to be flush with the caseback, giving the watch a more streamlined fit on the wrist.
The straps also feature a quick change springbar system allowing you to swap out different straps for every occasion. The straps are made using premium, full grain leather from Horween, one of the oldest continuously running tanneries in the United States.
Xeric has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the mass production of Halograph II Automatic watch. By backing this project, customers can pre-order the watch with discounted price range.
Update on 18 July 2021: Conducted from 13th June to 03rd July in 2018, the Kickstarter campaign was extremely successful and raised an amount of $1,130,416. The Halograph II Automatic watch is now available at Xeric at a retail price of $499. Please visit Xeric website to purchase this timepiece.
