Devon Tread 1

Devon Works - Tread 1 Promotional Video from John Boros Productions on Vimeo.




I'm very excited to write about this wristwatch as I absolutely love watches. The only problem is there was never anything I could write about on this blog - since the few major wristwatch makes in the USA have closed their doors decades ago and Swiss and to an extent Japanese absolutely dominate the horology world in every price point. Well, not any more. The renowned American designer Scott Devon decided to change that. By building on the industry that still dominates America, aerospace, he was able to bring his creation to the market. This watch is completely made in the USA, not a single Swiss supplier was used and instead the American aerospace companies which provide unparalleled machine precision were utilized. This is something to be truly proud of, this is a big slap in the face to the Swiss dominated wristwatch industry and my only hope for the future that this watch will not become a one off but instead will provide a viable model for collectors to experience something made in the USA as opposed to the monopolies of Renaud & Papi, et al.
