Devon Tread 2 Watches in Production at Brand New Pasadena Facility & Design Lab

DEVON is working hard on the Tread 2 production by recently acquiring a spectacular building in Pasadena, California for their hi tech lab. The location of Pasadena, a Los Angeles County university town, was carefully selected as it is the home to world-renowned schools such as CalTech, and the Art Center College of Design. Neighbors also include NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. The building will be DEVON’s new corporate headquarters, production center and design lab. 

DEVON has also hired a new Production Manager, John Thomas, who brings many years of manufacturing experience to the brand. He is assembling a team of production engineers and watch assemblers, and DEVON is on track with the production and assembly of the Tread 1 and 2. This move will assist DEVON in making a dramatic improvement in quality control and customer satisfaction. 

Devon Tread 2 continues to use of the Tread 1's patented movement technology employing an innovative system of fiberglass-reinforced nylon Time Belts.  The belts are only 2/1000th's of an inch thick and are a technology appropriated directly out of the cockpits of airliners like the Boeing 747 where they indicated vital measurements such as air speed and fluid levels.  the belts are mounted on a central chassis and driven by two extremely compact microstep motors.  These motors and all other watch functions are controlled by a microcontroller, essentially an extremely compact computer inside the heart of the watch.  Loaded with DEVON's proprietary software, this computer manages all of the timepiece's functions and ensure precision time-keeping, the preliminary testing of which indicates an unusually accurate tolerance of only one half-second per day.
