Eone Timepieces launch a colouring competiton for Blindness Awareness Month

Only a few days to go!

Eone (short for 'Everyone') was founded by MIT graduate Huyngsoo Kim to help blind people tell time. The timepiece features raised hour markers - a triangular marker for twelve, elongated line segments for three, six, and nine, and shorter line segments for the other markers - and two tiny ball bearings that rotate around the dial, that's minute hand, and on the outer edge of the bezel, that's the hour hand, thus allowing the wearer to touch it and determine what time it is depending on where the ball is located at any given moment.

The Bradley, their signature timepiece, is powered by a Ronda quartz movement, coming in with a 40 mm case available in stainsless steel, titanium and ceramic with matching face. It was named after former naval officer and Paralympic gold medalist Bradley Snyder, who lost his eyesight from an IED explosion while serving in Afghanistan.

For this year’s Blindness Awareness Month and World Sight Day on October 8, Eone launched a competition that anyone can enter to give their iconic Bradley timepiece a new look. You can download the blueprint, submit your design (before October 15) with a brief (100-300 character) description and email your submission here.

Celebrity Chef Christine Ha will be pick the winner and the winning design will be made into a real piece for the winner.

How would you design your watch? I'd go with mint green face and black strap

    • So, what’s your point?

      How many watch brands use designs that are not their own?

      Are you claiming that only the Chinese are copying designs?

  • Nice minimalist watch. But if blind wear it does it matter what the color is? I wouldn't care.
