DANVILLE, Calif. - Oct. 30, 2017 - PRLog -- NASA's recent groundbreaking discovery of the Trappist-1 solar system inspired the team at Xeric to imagine what a journey to these newly found planets might be like. The Xeric Trappist-1 Moonphase watch pays tribute to this new planetary system of seven planets resembling our own, located 12 parsecs (39 light years) away from us and orbiting a red dwarf star slightly more massive than Jupiter.

Several principal characteristics of the Xeric Trappist-1 Moonphase watch set it apart from other traditional watch designs. 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 strength 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.

During observation of the Trappist-1 planetary system, researchers found that these new worlds were within a habitable zone where liquid water and even plant life may be present. Traveling to these planets may still be a long way off, but that doesn't prevent us from dreaming up the perfect watch about the journey: the Xeric Trappist-1 Moonphase.

Xeric was started from a passion to push the boundaries of design and create unique, yet affordable time machines —  watches like you've never seen before. Xeric is one of the most successful watch brands on Kickstarter. We started out as watch collectors, and it's our passion to create surprising timepieces.

The team behind Xeric is also responsible for (formerly Watchismo). Xeric was founded by brothers Mitch & Andrew Greenblatt who are modern horological enthusiasts with a passion for unique timepieces. They've been scouring the globe since 1999 discovering obscure, unusual brands that you've probably never heard of as well as carefully curating the brands you love. A watch is a unique form of art, design and personal expression. They have a long-standing mission of providing exceptional and affordable timepieces to adventurous enthusiasts.
