Hey Mr, nice watch!

Not all wristwatches are created equal. That said, most top-end timepieces look remarkably similar and utilise virtually identical tick tock technology – annoying when you’ve just remortgaged your yacht to buy the latest model. Enter, with a shriek of ‘WTF?’, the forehead-slappingly radical Devon Tread 1 Watch.

Unlike any other watch you’ve seen, this mechanical masterpiece uses 4 compact microstep motors to power a series of exposed glass-nylon belts that adjust the time and date. Mesmerising? It’s like staring into a modern art installation of interwoven, perpetually moving conveyor belts. The fact that it tells the time is almost incidental.

The innovation doesn’t stop with the Tread 1’s patented belt design; an optical recognition system ‘knows’ every belt position at all times. What’s more, the crystal shield encasing its phenomenally accurate movement is made from scratch-resistant bullet-proof polycarbonate, and most of its internal parts are produced by suppliers to the aerospace industry. And if you think that elevates this astounding watch to Bond-esque levels of durability you’d be right. Even its steel case is coated with diamond-like carbon.

Despite being powered by a rechargeable cell that runs for up to two weeks on a single charge, the Tread 1 is far too cool for old-school charging cables. For this reason its luxe box is outfitted with wireless recharging technology.

Impressed? You should be, but if you’re in the market for a product boasting this level of engineering excellence you probably already know that Devon is a company synonymous with innovative luxury design. An essential addition to any serious watch collection, the Tread 1 is, without doubt, the most striking piece of wrist candy we’ve ever seen. Mr Diddy, belt up and eat your heart out!

Customer Reviews

Beautiful. One-of-a-Kind. Who else would have this watch on when you go out at night. Poo-poo all you want but if you're a collector of rare time pieces this is the watch to have. AND. Yes you can spend 3x as much on a Chopard.

Firebox says: Hi Haydn, there really is a tremendous amount of work and detail that go in to these watches - check this out!
Does anyone actually buy things like these? It's pretty cool but who's going to fork out £10, 999 on a watch?

Firebox says: Hi Callum, You can spend alot more on watches! People love this, mainly due to its innovative design
Got one and had an allergic reaction to the non precious metal case, shame.... . Refunded and bought 1000 tins of unicorn meat instead -- Yum!

Not only an incredible piece of craft, but also a multi directional running machine for my overweight dwarf hamster. Hurrah!
Darryl Quested - 21st April 2011
I was sick of people looking at my wrist for the time that I got this watch and it works a treat now when people look they don’t have a clue what time it is. It’s good to pretend I am like Jack Bauer on some kind of top secret mission and it tells me all different types of information about the world. Worth 15000? Ummm no!
