Devon Tread 2 has been redesigned. Is it time to consider twice?
Although I have followed the brand in recent years, this is my second mention of DEVON in Southern California. The brand uses its “Tread 1” watch to pick up waves and display time through an interlaced conveyor system, partly managed by an optical identification system (the watch is powered by a rechargeable lithium battery). It has always been a very avant-garde watch, I really like it. The originality of Devon Tread 1 proves that it was designed as the Gran Prix d’AllogeriedeGenéve in the design and concept watch category, the first American watch brand to receive this prestigious name.
With the success of Tread 1, the brand is launching its second model, Tread 2. Now after several years of production, I am not sure if I like the development direction of Tread 2. I will discuss this and take a closer look at Tread 2 below.
At the Basel Watch Fair last year, the brand launched the second model Tread. 2. I gave a brief introduction to Tread 2 in March 2012. I must say that I really like design iteration. Fast forward to today – I learned that Tread 2 has been redesigned and will reappear to retailers and customers of the 2013 Basel International Watch & Jewellery Show.buy Hublot Big Bang Ferrari replica watches
It is undeniable that the Tread 2 proposed in March 2012 is a prototype. Although I can appreciate the designer’s desire to continually modify their designs, I think Devon should stick to the design that was proposed last year. The new design shown here is not for me. In particular, I don’t like eight rivets (four on each side of the case), and I don’t think the “hours” and “minutes” symbols are needed (I think this is obvious). On the plus side, the watch is said to be more snug, but the size has increased slightly – now 44mm x 42mm, the original design is 42mm x 38mm.
To be fair, I would say that given the complexity of the Devon Tread series, I am willing to retain my final judgment until I see Tread 2 with my own eyes. In addition to Perpetuelle, the real test for Devon will be the 2013 Basel International Watch and Jewellery Show and this year’s newly designed reception will be the same retailer and customer who saw the original design last year.
My last sentence is that Tread 1 is still the flagship product of the brand and a more ideal product. Although Tread 2 is cheaper, it is still expected to be designed. Launching your own watch brand from scratch is no easy task, especially for American brands that must compete with Swiss giants. Devin is undoubtedly the first time to beat the winner, although I have been criticized, I still hope that Tread 2 will eventually succeed in winning this young brand.
Devon watch: time design outside the box
If you are looking for a future timepiece, the German watch may be exactly what you need. Devon was launched in 2010 with the goal of creating an unprecedented watch design, not to mention an attempt. The Devon Tread 1 watch can meet this challenge and more challenges.luxury Tonino Lamborghini replica watches
Extremely unique about Tread 1 is that it relies on multiple interlaced tape systems on the exposed mechanism that display time. Brand founder Scott Devon was inspired to develop the design after seeing graffiti on the main belt exposed by the motorcycle. Belts for German watches come from US suppliers who have been using the same avionics belt. This particular type of fiber reinforced glass nylon tape was chosen because it responds well to extreme temperatures and to resistance to stretching and wear. The belt assembly runs on the central chassis, which gives the illusion that the watch components float in a stainless steel case and operate with a compact microstep motor. In addition, almost all Tread 1 is developed and manufactured in the United States, including parts.
The Tread 1 watch is powered by a lithium polymer battery and can be operated for two weeks on a single charge. The anti-reflective crystal is made of polycarbonate and is the same as bulletproof glass. The pulley system uses gemstone bearings to move at the point of friction, so no lubrication is required.

The Devon Tread watch is arguably the most advanced watch available today and is a compelling visual effect and technology. The Tread 1 watch has four internal 2 micron thin strips that can be rotated inside the case to show time. It is powered by a lithium polymer rechargeable battery and is charged by wireless induction. The belts operated by this electrical system are consistent with optical technology. Plus it, you have the most technologically advanced and visually pleasing watch. Designed by a California Aerospace company, Devon Works Tread 1 Watch is ideal for mounting square nails through round holes. This watch is a model of their technical strength.wholesale Richard Mille RM 022 replica Watches
DEVON operates in California and is the only US watch company that uses its own proprietary core. At the end of 2010, Tread 1 was nominated for the Gran Prix d’AllogeriedeGenéve in the design and concept watch category, the first American watch brand to receive this praise.
Devon’Tread 1’Time watch
New innovations in watchmaking don’t happen very often, and when it happens, the appearance of the results sometimes seems to be gradual. Today we are launching the new Devon’Tread 1′ watch with a patent-pending interlaced belt system.
The “” belt assembly is mounted on the central chassis so that the perfect clearance of the moving parts is achieved and the illusion that the parts float inside the case. Four extremely compact microstep motors drive the movement of four belts for high efficiency, precise power and high precision.
Due to the integration of the jewel bearings, the lubrication-free pulley system is free to move. The temperature compensated crystal provides data to the onboard microprocessor and drives four microstep motors.
The five-piece case is made of high-grade stainless steel and is made of five elements using an advanced CNC structure. The window of this mechanical masterpiece is made of scratch-resistant and anti-reflective polycarbonate with anti-ballistic properties.online replica watches for sale

Introducing The Devon Works Tread 2, As Explained By Chief Engineer Jeff Stephenson
California company Devon Works is following up on their popular Tread 1 watch with a second generation, the Tread 2, this year at Baselworld. Last year we brought you an in-depth look at the Tread 1, and you may remember a couple of points against it were its size and its audible annoyance. Both issues have been addressed with the Tread 2 without compromising any of the original charm. While in Basel last week, we sat down with Devon engineer Jeff Stephenson for an explanation of some of the new features.
The first thing you’ll notice about the Tread 2 are its far more manageable dimensions. While it’s still a far cry from svelte, wearability is vastly improved. Further helping in the practicality department is the new crown system which uses an articulating arm to access many of the watches features. The arm adds a nice visual touch to the new case design as well, which is constructed of multiple pieces varying in texture. Another big change is the removal of the seconds belt, eliminating the culprit of all that noise. However, this does remove the most animated element of the watch; but if you’re missing that bit you can put the minutes belt into a seconds mode.
The Tread 2 also has the capacity to enter “chronograph” mode, which zeros the minute belt and sets the hour at 12. From there you can time events as you would any chronograph. Watch above as Jeff explains.
It’s important to note here that the Tread 2 is not yet in final form. Some of the functions are still being hammered out, as are a variety of possible color combinations.best Bremont Jaguar replica watches
