The Eone timepiece is a one-of-a-kind watch that is made to fit every ones’ need, to display the correct time and to look fashionable at… the same time. Eone isn’t really a watch, according to Nick Gu, the company’s lead designer, it’s a fashionable ‘timepiece’. And, that is exactly what it looks like, timelessly fashionable with distinctly raised points that are reminiscent of an ancient sun-dial.
It looks very smart, but how does it work? Unlike traditional watches, the Eone timepiece design has the watch hands removed, only to be replaced a pair of ball bearings. One on the top of the timepiece that indicates and the other indicates the minutes.
The interesting thing about the inspiration behind the Eone, is that its designers wanted to create a timepiece that alters the way we interact with time, or at least how we tell time. Fashion aside, this timepiece also allows people with vision loss to actually touch the time, which is a wonderful idea and very timely.
