If you’re looking for the quality and craftsmanship of a Swiss watch, however with an affordable price tag, you’re looking at the LIV Genesis X1-A Automatic. The Swiss made watch boasts all the specs and finishes you would expect of its kind; a clean design with a three-dimensional multi layered construction and high quality anti-reflective sapphire crystal on the front and back. Yet, the LIV Genesis X1-A boasts to be the only Swiss Automatic watch ever launched on Kickstarter under $500, with prices starting on Kickstarter at $390.
It is clear that the Brooklyn-based boutique company had the consumers in mind when creating the LIV Genesis X1-A. The rugged stainless steel casing and IP coating, creates an overall tough, yet aesthetically beautiful appearance, fit for “the man who won’t be told what to do.” The standards of this watch are certainly not compromised and are suited to meet customers’ needs of reliability, style and quality craftsmanship.
It comes as no surprise that we’ve seen this watch surpass all expectations. Within 34 minutes of launching the LIV Genesis X1-A on Kickstarter, the entire project was fully funded, resulting in replacing the LIV Genesis X1 Chronograph as the most backed Swiss Watch Project on Kickstarter.
Whilst the LIV Genesis X1-A not only looks beautiful and offers quality specs, its function as a sporty watch not only meets the bar for a watch of its style, but sets the bar higher. The sapphire crystal proves to be highly scratch resistant and stays streak free, whilst the watch itself is water resistant up to 100 meters. What more could you want?
