One of the new Devon watches for 2013 to be presented at Baselworld will be this Exoskeleton version of the Tread 1 (reviewed here). This will be Devon’s highest-end watch to-date. While the core electro-mechanical movement from the Tread 1 remains more or less the same, and the overall design is certainly “Tread 1”, this piece is a different beast altogether. For one thing Devon is thinking about making it in precious materials such as 18k white or rose gold. More importantly, it will be highly “skeletonized.”
Devon will likely use the same “ballistic polycarbonate” as the crystal for the many see-through elements of the watch. The plates over the time-telling treads are also new. One of the more interesting new features is that instead of coming on a strap, the Tread 1 Exoskeleton will come on a bracelet – also skeletonized. This is the most T1000 Terminator-worthy Devon watch to-date. It just needs glowing red parts. Skynet would be proud.
Specific details and pricing will need to wait until April when Devon will show off actual versions of the Tread 1 Exoskeleton. This is the watch to make Devon fans even more passionate, and the reverse is true for those who aren’t into the brand’s concept. devonworks.com
