Relying upon information taken from engineering talent from within our country’s aerospace industry, Devon has again accomplished the seemingly impossible with the Tread 1 Steampunk, a new luxury timepiece motivated by the Industrial Revolution and the invention of conveyor belts, of all things. We can definitely see the inspiration in the watch’s appearance, which allows for its inner movements to be in plain view to its wearer — and all others. All the wheels, cogs, and gears are visibly hard at work, simultaneously giving the timepiece both a modern and Victorian look. The idea of the watch was a mere concept for only a brief period of time, as it was turned into a reality soon after the design study was shown to a group of the world’s most prolific watch collectors.
