There is something about NASA and space travel inspired timepieces that always turns our heads here at The Coolector and this is especially true when they look as awesome as this NASA Apollo 15 Mission American Automatic & Moonphase Watch from Xeric. Funding on Kickstarter now and securing over a quarter of a million dollars in backing already, it definitely appears that we’re not alone in falling for the rather substantial charms of this eye-catching timepiece. Released as a celebration of the 50th anniversary of NASA’s first mission to the moon, this is the sort of watch that will turn heads everywhere you go.
The NASA Apollo 15 Mission American Automatic & Moonphase Watch from Xeric is available for the excellent early-bird price of just $269 during the campaign which is some 28% off the intended final retail price for this awe-inspiring timepiece. This is the first NASA watch with USA Automatic & Moonphase movements and you’ll be blown away when you see it in action and up-close for the first time. These striking watches are designed in California and produced on an artisanal scale, which makes it possible to offer high-end mechanical features that are accessible to a broad cross-section of horological aficionados. And, best of all, you can bag it for a bargain price on Kickstarter right now.
Shoot For The Stars
All the movements for these NASA Apollo 15 watches from Xeric are tested and assembled in Arizona, USA, to exacting standards and the quality and performance that they offer is second to none. One of the stand out design features of this astrological-inspired timepiece is the large, central moon phase function that displays the current phase of the moon through its 29.5 day cycle. This is very fitting for a NASA orientated watch and adds a real touch of gravitas to the aesthetic of this first-class timepiece from Xeric.
The Xeric NASA Apollo 15 Mission American Automatic & Moonphase Watch (from $269) doesn’t require batteries and is built upon the custom calibre X3.1 Americhrom movement. This self-winding movement will actually generate power as you wear it and can also be powered by winding the crown. The NASA Apollo 15 Watch has a 40-hour power reserve and the visual impact of the watch, particularly when it is lit up in low light conditions really is beyond compare and it’s certainly not difficult to see why it has proven so popular over on the crowd-funding platform.
This super cool watch is limited to just 1971 pieces so move fast if you want to secure one for your wrist. Each one has a coin-engraved, stainless steel case back which depicts the lunar rover on its arrival on the moon. It is available in an array of different colour combinations and you are sure to find the one that tallies with your own style persuasion perfectly. We’re loving the NASA inspired aesthetics of this cracking watch from Xeric and with only a few days left to bag one of your own, make sure you don’t miss out on the bargain price of $269.
