Eone watches

Modern wristwatches you can touch and see

Eone's history dates back to 2015 when the brand's founder, Hyungsoo Kim, came up with the idea for the watch when a blind fellow at MIT felt uncomfortable wearing his talking watch during class. The goal was to create a watch designed for everyone.  Eone is a shorthand for the English word "everyone", which reflects the brand's interest in serving everyone.

Eone began designing its watch with the maxim of"Nothing for the wearer, without the wearer", so it consulted different blind people to identify their needs and contemplate their wishes. Most opted for a discreet design without drawing attention every time they had to check the time, so their designers focused on a tactile identification system, specifically 2 concentric balls that describe a circumference, one of them indicating the time and the other the minutes. Both are detected very well and allow the reading of the time to be clear, and, above all, that it can be used by both a person with and without visual impairment.


Its one-of-a-kind collection is named  Bradley and named for a former Army officer who lost his sight in an explosion in the 2011 Afghanistan war, Brad Snyder. Showing great inner strength and a magnificent spirit of achievement, Brad competed and won two gold and silver medals in swimming at the 2012 Paralympic Games in London. It is a sign of homage.

How does an Eone watch work?

Eone Bradley Mesh Quartz Watch, Ronda 502, 40 mm, Black, Steel bracelet, BR-BLK

Its peculiarity is that, instead of the traditional hands, the  Bradley watch indicates the time by means of two small magnetically fixed balls: the minute ball, located at the top of the watch, and the other, which indicates the time, is in a slot cut into the profile of the watch case.

To improve tactile readability, it has a triangular mark at 12 o'clock and more elongated marks than the rest at 3, 6 and 9.


Just by passing your fingers through its titanium dial, you can see the relief of the marks, the balls and we will quickly know exactly what time it is. If for some reason we touch any of the small balls too hard, it will only be enough a gesture of the wrist so that the magnets catch them and return to their place.

The compromise between utility and visual appeal led to the final product, a sleek modern timepiece that was nominated for the annual  London Design Museum award. The company now offers more than 20 versions of the watch, with different textures and appearances.
