Vision Australia selling the Eone Timepiece,Ming and I chat about this timeless work of engineering.
The Eone Bradley timepiece features raised hour markers that allow you to feel the time by touch: a triangular marker for twelve, elongated line segments for three, six, and nine, and shorter line segments for the other markers.
Two magnetised ball bearings travel around the watch face in separate, recessed tracks: one track around the centre center of the watch face's surface for the minute, and one track around the outside edge of the watch face for the hour.
To tell the time by touch, simply run your finger over the raised hour markers, feeling the markers where the ball bearings are located. If either ball bearing moves out of place, shake your wrist and they will snap back to the correct locations.
Modern, and stylish.
Bold prominent tactile markers “mark” for the passing of time.
Out of the box thinking to tell time by position of ball bearings for minute (top face), and hours around the outside.
Looks and feels like a quality built product.
Various timepieces and bands to choose from for mixing and matching formal ware, casual or in-between.
Looks like a cool designed timepiece when warn.
As the Braille on the box says “Designed for you. Design for everyone”.
