richard mille nadal “Growing up in Detroit in the 60’s and 70’s continues to influence the Devon Watches brand. From my record setting Supercar the Devon GTX, to custom motorcycles and of course our watches. All of the design clues can be traced back to that era which till this day was a golden age of American design.”To commemorate that historical influence Devon is introducing Motown Nights. Based on the popular Tread 2 timepieces Motown Nights captures the cool vibes and legacy of such great artists as Stevie Wonder, The Supremes, Marvin Gaye, and Michael Jackson. Founded by Barry Gordon Jr. In 1960, Motown is not only one of the greatest pop music hit factories ever heard, but an institution, a state of mind, and a way of life.

Headquartered Mens Sports Watch in Los Angeles, and led by Creative Director, Designer, and Conceptual Artist Scott Devon, Devon is a design lab dedicated to creating innovative luxury products that exemplify the American spirit.When the Tread 1 from Devon Works was released, the world of haute horology didn't know what to think of it. It shared many the same traits of the big modern brands, but it didn't use any of the same suppliers. Even worse, it was battery powered! Still, this hulking piece of horology won over the hearts of the most die-hard collectors, and was even selected as a finalist in 2010's Geneva Grand Prix in the Design and Concept Watch category....and need we remind you, it runs on a battery. We had to see what this enormous, belt-driven machine was all about, so we gave one to Blake for a week's review. To read a detailed Week On The Wrist review of the incredible $17,500 Devon Works Tread 1, click through. urwerk replica

The Tread 1, built by Los Angeles-based Devon Works, is a departure from the norms set forth by the mavens of modern haute horology; Urwerk, MB&F et. al. The biggest deviation from these purveyors of mechanical art is that the Tread 1 uses an on-board battery system to supply the power that brings the watch to life. Though, in many ways the Tread 1 captures the same spirit of inventiveness and interactivity that we've come to expect from high-end contemporary watchmakers. Walking around with the watch on your wrist is an engaging experience, and not nearly as awkward as a first glance might suggest. I spent a week with the Tread 1, and it didn't take long for my skepticism to gave way to a childish sense of enjoyment.

First impressions of the Tread 1 can range from curiosity and confusion to anger and awe. Most of the time, all at once. The watch is an imposing figure, its square-ish form overwhelms all but the manliest of wrists. One of my biggest surprises then, was just how easy the watch is to wear. The integrated lugs take steep angles as they attach to the rubber strap, affording a snug fit to my 7.25" wrist. The attachment points of the lugs bare nice detailing, from brushed surfaces to exposed lug nuts. They provide a fitting transition to the stage of activity tha lay under the large sapphire plastic crystal. Exposed gears, sensors and belts all dance away under the dial, you'd be tempted to call it graceful if it weren't for the decidedly industrial manner in which it goes about its business. Even the bulking crown, built with lovely detail, is an imposing structure to manipulate.

So the Tread 1 may not be for the faint of heart, but it is quite competent in its core function of telling time. Once you know what you're looking at, getting a quick read of the time is a breeze thanks to excellent visibility. The watch would make an equally good desk clock within a modern office setting (something to consider, Devon?) The watch's exposed moving parts make the Tread 1 a visually arresting machine, but the legible belt system used to display the time bring the watch to a level of every day usability often lost on machines of such complexion. breitling replica

Obviously, we are used to seeing watches “inspired” by this or that, but rarely do we see a watch that levers so much of its muse into such a small space with such authority and gusto. Almost every design cue Darth Vader could have conjured has been heeded in the architecture of this watch. Does it look busy? Yes, it looks like all the bits from the famous trash compactor scene decided to form a dance troupe. But does it work? You’re damn right it does.I mean, it shouldn’t. I guess it goes against every design principle or rulebook I would ever think to follow. It should look gimmicky; it could look cheap; it should look like a teenager has tried too hard to cram all of his favorite stuff into one timepiece. But it doesn’t. Somehow, despite the Tie Fighter bits here, and the Control Panel elements there, it looks sleek, elegant, self-confident, and totally badass. In my opinion, it takes the belt-driven system we saw in the Devon Tread and runs with it. This housing is miles better than the steampunk-inspired case that first carried the novel complication that binds the two. I liked the Devon Tread; I love the Devon Star Wars watch.

If anything, I could argue that a watch like the Devon Works Tread 2 Shining is actually more interesting in many regards that a classic mechanical watch. On the whole, I will go out on a limb and say this is definitely one of my top three skeleton watches. And make no mistake - this is indeed a skeleton watch. audemars piguet replica

Think about it - what defines a skeleton watch? The fact that you can see, from the dial side, at least some portion, if not all, of the movement at work. That is precisely what you have here. Yes, the hour and minute belts cover some of the visual real estate, plus the metal cutouts that tell you what is what. Past that, you can see what is going on inside the case. And that’s just from the head-on view; tilt the case a bit, and you can get in to see more and more.

When you do that, you start to see what I would describe as complexity made simple. Another way of putting it would be complexity hiding beneath simplicity. However you want to coin that particular term, the fact is the same: The Devon Works Tread 2 Shining looks simple at first, and then becomes obviously more complex as you dig into the details. This is evidenced by the gears and machinery running things, of course, but there are other ways that this is revealed.Nevertheless Scott wasn’t happy with the design of the Tread 2 as it was after Baselworld. The project was re-assessed and it was possible that the Tread 2 wasn’t even going to be released. This was despite the fact that Devon had orders for the watches. There was even a possibility that the Tread 2 was going to be skipped in favor of another model.In the end, the Tread 2 prevailed, but in a new and more distinct form. The case and concept of the Tread 2 has been re-thought. The tonneau-style case comes in steel with DLC black coated versions in a few colors. This time it has a single sapphire crystal and two, not three belts. The idea is for the watch to be smaller, quieter, more wearable, and less expensive. When it comes out soon, the Devon Tread 2 will have a price under $10,000 (compared to close to $20,000 for the Tread 1), and I look forward to checking it out. popular tag heuer replica watches

The watch does however contain a lot of screws - mostly decorative. The steampunk aesthetic is derived from a mixture of Jules Verne-style science fiction and Industrial Revolution era technology and machinery. Most people think of it as retro-futuristic, and I have to admit a lot of it is rather cool. One hallmark of steampunk creations is an “aged” looked that has the things not looking brand new. This is actually why bronze is becoming a bit of a trendy material in some watches. The Tread 1 Steampunk uses a lot of it to create a convincing aged look - which is actually charmingly ironic as the innards of the Tread 1 are thoroughly modern. No “real” steampunk items would have a computerized micro controller!

Devon’s answer to an artsier version of a mechanical art watch, and it is something which I am happy they decided to make. If you think the Tread 1 was a niche product, I wonder how you feel about the Tread 1 Steampunk? In most respects, the Steampunk version of the Tread 1 is the same as the original. Mechanically it is the same (although it features the latest firmware), and the case dimensions are more or less comparable (the differences come in with all the Steampunk cladding). Having said that, the new parts make it feel like something rather different - and no, those aren’t loose screws coming out of it.
