Devon Works Tread 1 Steampunk Limited Edition Wristwatch By Devon Works LLC

Although very similar in size and configuration to the normal Tread 1, Steampunk is instantly recognizable as something special. The piece measures 56mm x 50mm x 18.5mm and exterior case parts are covered by bronze “body armor,” a term coined by DEVON’s Chief Engineer, Jeff Stephenson, because of the way the cladding protects the original Tread 1 case structure. This body armor is a complex system of parts that is accented by extensive riveting as well as screws and fittings made of a pleasantly contrasting mix of brass and bronze finishes.
Phosphor bronze spring spacers are placed at the four corners of the armor adding even more depth to Steampunk’s aesthetic. The visual symphony carries on inside the case where the most recognizable features are the movement’s brass motor housings and the newly designed indicator plate that’s intricately etched to accomplish a delicate, vintage appeal. The fiberglass-reinforced nylon Time Belts are dark brown while the numerals are executed in an off-white color. All of these elements, among others, contribute to a decidedly antiqued and bespoke appearance.
The Devon Tread 1 Steampunk will be limited to a special edition of 150 pieces and retail for US$25,000 when deliveries begin this November. "I believe this is a must-have watch for any serious watch collector, I know I can't wait to wear mine. In fact, it's been so well-received that we’re even thinking of launching a line of Steampunk luggage and briefcases," adds Devon. The watch’s charging device is a work of art by itself and it’s easy to see why the lab is considering extending the design to other segments.
