Watchismo has finally taken the leap from Curators to Creators by launching their watch brand XERIC, starting with the unveiling of the XERISCOPE Orbiting Mechanical Watch.

For 15 years, the Watchismo brothers scoured the globe to find the most interesting watches. It was clear that the world needs an unusual & affordable mechanical watch… So we've decided to make one.  Take a look and you’ll see why XERISCOPE watches by XERIC will stop strangers in their tracks for a glance at your wrist:

  • Fully-exposed, mechanical movement is the display
  • Limited edition of 100 individually numbered watches per style
  • Innovative time display with a unique double sided minute hand
  • Automatically recharges itself with the motion of your daily life: No batteries needed - Ever 

XERIC watches embody the art of timekeeping by fusing exposed mechanical function with timeless form in a singular machine. Buck the trend of soon-to-be obsolete gadget watches and be the most interesting person in the room.

Mitch and Andrew Greenblatt founded XERIC Watches to bring complex, mechanical timepieces to a broad cross-section of watch enthusiasts who dream of an affordable Mechanical. Together, the brothers have carefully curated the exceptional collection at, which since 1999 has been a singular source for unique modern watches from around the world. XERIC Watches represents a natural progression of the business: from Curators to Creators of designs that reflect their experience, knowledge and passion for the truly unusual.

For years, we combed the globe to bring the world's most interesting watches to our customers at Our work identified a glaring gap in the watch market -- the need for a very cool & affordable, mechanical watch -- at a time when we were eager to act on our longstanding dream to create something that had not been done by anyone else. Together with the Watchismo Labs workshop, we designed the first line of these very special timepieces.

How did we finally make Mechanical an affordable reality? We are a slim company, and don't have a lot of red tape and added costs. Yet we do have a great deal of experience with watches that informed the design of a piece that would look as exceptional today as it will in a hundred years. Finally, we found a way to produce this creation at an artisanal scale... and hope to keep it that way because our customers care to have the most unusual watch in the room.

Designed in California, XERIC watches are produced on an artisanal scale, making high-end mechanical features accessible to a broad cross-section of horological enthusiasts.

Each watch takes its place in a surgical grade stainless steel case; a fully-exposed, orbiting 12-hour mechanical movement with dual timezone display; retrograde power reserve meter; and case-back window for observing the oscillating rotor. No batteries required -- ever -- as these watches generate power by the daily action of your wrist.

Know anyone who plans to leave their smart watch to their kids? Neither do we. Let's not plan for obsolescence. Let's be a part of something that was perfect to begin with, and only gets better with time.

Take a look and you’ll see why XERISCOPE watches by XERIC will stop strangers in their tracks for a glance at your wrist:
  • Fully-exposed, mechanical movement that IS the display: Enjoy viewing the machine on BOTH sides of the watch and reading the time via the movement itself
  • Unique minute hand lives nearby, alongside a second timezone display and a power reserve meter that lets you know it’s time to keep moving
  • Six colorways in a timeless-yet-modern design to suit any style and proudly pass along to the next generation
  • Automatically recharges itself with the motion of your daily life: No batteries needed. Ever.

A very rare mechanical function, the hour hand on the XERISCOPE Automatic is also the watch movement - fully exposed from the dial of the watch.

A beating mechanical heart, the mainspring of the watch pumps life into this complex time machine.  Seeing the action of the living machine on your wrist gives a thrill no electronic gadget can.

Another rarity in timekeeping, the XERISCOPE's double-sided minute hand with two-tier arc of digits. The XERISCOPE deconstructs typical watch functionality with easy to read originality.

Wearing and winding this timepiece generates energy seen in this power reserve meter.  Much like the gas tank of your car.

Need to know what time it is at home when traveling or if it's too late to call where your better half is, no problem, the second time zone can be set to any other location on the planet.

A design perfected with focus on style and legibility.  The XERISCOPE is classic, yet very modern.  There's nothing quite like a mechanical watch.  The many parts of a machine all working in unison completely viewable from the front is a rare sight these days...

Finally, a complicated mechanical watch that's also affordable!

  • Stainless Steel Case (45mm wide x 13mm thick)
