THE BRADLEY TIMEPIECE

Mr Han bought me a Valentine's gift THE BRADLEY TIMEPIECE.

We waited for 4 months! And it's finally here! 

The Bradley Timepiece is a tactile timepiece that allows you to not only see what time it is, but to feel what time it is.




We got the same design!

Diameter: 40 mm
Height: 11.5 mm
Material: titanium (front face and side) & stainless steel (back)
Color straps: cotton fabric (front) & leather (back)
Quartz (watch movement): Ronda Quartz (Swiss made)
Water-proof: 50 m

Wouldn’t it be great if you could check the time in a dark movie theater without having to illuminate your smartphone? What about not having to look down at your watch to check the time during a drawn-out client lunch?

Created in collaboration with product designers, engineers, and people with vision loss, The Bradley changes the way we interact with our timepieces. You shouldn't need to "watch" your wristwatch to tell the time, and that is why they call The Bradley a timepiece instead of a watch.

Instead of traditional watch hands, time is indicated by two ball bearings — one indicating minutes (top), and one indicating hours (side). 

These two ball bearings are connected, with magnets, to a watch movement beneath the watch face.The magnets make it so that even if the ball bearings are moved when touched, they spring back to the correct time with a gentle shake of your wrist.



They wrap it nicely ;) 




A new timepiece for everyone

The idea for The Bradley came after Hyungsoo, the founder of Eone, discovered that all mainstream wristwatches and clocks require sight, making most mainstream watches inconvenient, if not impossible, for the visually impaired to use.

It comes in four different designs. Click the picture below and watch the video
