Devon Works Rolls Out Conveyor Belt Steampunk Watch
Via Devon Works
It is interesting to see a relatively new player like Devon Works take the luxury timepiece market by storm. What has worked in the favour of this LA-based company is an advanced engineering set up and a design laboratory that most other market players would envy. The proof is in the pudding indeed, as the company rolls out an array of timepieces that have shortly and surely acquire the ‘iconic’ status, and are endorsed by the world’s most prolific watch collectors.
Moving Along From Tread 1
While Tread 1 enjoyed acclaim and acceptance from many, Devon Works has had ample time to work on a new mark up version. Make way for Tread 1 Steampunk, a watch the will intrigue you, in more ways than you can imagine. Let’s dish out the details:
• The watch is inspired by conveyor belts and motivated by the Industrial Revolution.
• The engineering techniques can be traced back to the American Aerospace Industry.
• The watch is a limited edition offering, and as JustLuxe reports, Devon will manufacture only 150 of these timepieces, and price them at a staggering $25,000.
All talk and no show… well don’t expect that from the Steampunk. The conveyor belt inspiration is clearly visible, wheels, cogs, gears et al. While the bronze exterior case, screws and fittings are reminiscent of the original Tread 1, what distinctly provides a new avatar is the modern twist on the otherwise Victorian looking design. Vintage in its brass motor housing and etched indicator plate, the new age is evident to the wearer when the inner movements of the watch, so smoothly make their presence felt, before one’s eyes.
If we have your attention, it may interest you to know that deliveries for the Tread 1 Steampunk will begin in November.
