Innovation and an inclusive spirit stand at the center of Eone Time, a company with a goal to design timepieces for everyone. What started as a successful Kickstarter campaign has transformed into a brand that revolutionizes classic watch designs. The tactile Bradley Collection is inspired by Brad Snyder, an ex-naval officer who lost his sight in combat and went on to win gold and silver medals at the London Paralympics in 2012. Believing you shouldn’t need sight to be able to tell the time, the company created a series of watches that are ideal for both sighted and visually impaired users. Featuring two magnetic ball bearings and an open face, the watches allow the wearer to quickly assess the time using the sense of touch. The ball on the side indicates the hours and the front ball indicates the minutes. Twelve o’clock is marked by a raised triangle; three, six, and nine feature elongated lines, while the other hour markers boast shorter lines. This makes the watch a perfect choice for those who prefer to check the time discreetly during business meetings, social events, or movie screenings.
The elegant and minimalist design suits everyday use and more formal occasions. Apart from the striking Bradley Element model that features a three-dimensional surface, the other watches share the same design but come in various color and material combinations. Titanium, stainless steel, and aluminum are used for the body, with straps made of genuine Italian leather, mesh, and canvas. The colors and textures are minimal and refined: intense black, matte gold and gray, gleaming silver, dark brown, or even brighter tones for the canvas straps. The Bradley Collection is currently available to order from the Gessato store, where you’ll find various versions of this innovative timepiece design. Buy here
