The Tread 2's movement relies heavily on aerospace technology such as glass-reinforced Nylon Time Belts—used to display the current time—adapted directly from aircraft instrumentation. Perfect clearance of moving parts create the illusion that they float within the case, and two compact micro-step motors drive the movement of the hour and minute belts with efficiency, exacting power, and steadfast accuracy. The lubricant-free pulley system moves freely thanks to the integration of jeweled bearings. A temperature-compensating and calibrated quartz crystal provides an accurate time-keeping signal to an onboard microprocessor which controls the movement’s two micro-step motors. Powered by a rechargeable lithium-polymer battery, the Tread 2 is recharged wirelessly via electromagnetic induction using its charging cradle. See all Devon Tread watches.
