Tell Time By Touching – Eone Watches
There is so much more to mere timepiece design when it comes to short, but brilliant history of Eone watches. Initially, it was a small project of using already invented designs of the coolest watches for the blind and creating a beautiful timepiece, which resulted in thousands of sighted people to buy them as well. This creative company used past designs and added innovation, like relocating, from the front to the back, the hour indicator, for even simpler time telling. The central idea behind Eone Bradley Watches is touching ball bearings to tell the time, as well as introducing raised marks for even easier time telling. And the best thing is; if a person touches the bearing a little too hard, they will make a full circle before coming back to the place that points to correct time.
Previous ideas of trendy & Cool watches for the blind included removing the glass from regular watches or inventing talking watches. These, however, had several downsides, with the most problematic being the possibility of the hands to get broken or moved away from the right time. Furthermore, talking watches were either not discrete enough (meaning time telling would be a distraction during a quiet meeting) or the watch could not be heard at all because the place was too noisy. This is where the unusual Eone watches come in. They are more useful than regular designer watches for both the visually impaired and sighted people because it allows them to tell time without any obstacles and in complete discretion.
Eone watches got their name after an incredible hero who proved how far devotion can go. His name is Bradley Snyder, who sadly lost his sight while serving in Afghanistan as a Lieutenant of the United States Navy. Determined to run away from depression, which usually accompanies tragedies like this, he decided to train for the Paralympic Games, even though he was never the athletic type. Despite all impediments, he trained very hard and ultimately won a gold medal for swimming. Eone watches recognised this bravery and determination and named their watch after this incredible man who serves as an inspiration for countless people around the world.
