Devon Timepieces has harnessed the raw, industrial, I-Love-Lucy technology of conveyor belts in their Time Belt series of watches. Each wicked, steampunky wrist ornament has a five-piece belt assembly mounted on a central chassis to maintain perfect clearance, plus create the illusion that the parts are floating within the case. Temperature-compensated crystals feed data to on-board microprocessors that drive the timepieces' four microstep motors. Devon's Time Belts are made from high-grade stainless steel forged in five elements through CNC construction. The watches' windows are crystals produced from scratch-resistant and anti-reflective polycarbonate. Oh, they're also bulletproof.

Six wrist watch variations comprise the Devon Time Belt Series, and each has a random, irritatingly difficult to remember name, like Tread 1F, much like Mercedes and Lexus models. The temporal conveyor belts come with a warranty that guarantees they will move the hours, minutes, and seconds of your day flawlessly for at least two years. They are marketed as unisex, but I can't really imagine a woman wanting that big of a hunk of metal weighing down her delicate, birdlike wrist. Plus, ladies, I'm afraid Time Belts carry only the time of day, not chocolate bon bons.

Muchas danke to Devon Z. for the product suggestion.
