I purchased this watch for my blind father. It has become one of his favorite possessions rather quickly. It is a time piece, conversation piece and tool that any person, with or without sight, will begin to love the moment it is received.

This is a very reasonably priced accurate time piece that elicits lots of comments. It’s very unusual. My only complaint is that the “hour” designator ball is a bit small and sometimes you need to move your hand to find it.
Elegant design and easy to read or feel time after a bit. Band was easy to size. This watch is so different than any others and so handsome that I find myself studying it often. If you watch closely, you can see the minute ball move a little about every 20 seconds.
Interesting watch design. Not sure how intuitive the ball positioning is on the piece. Would be hard to feel for the minute hand with my right hand when it’s between 15 and 30 minute mark. Also, my watch didn’t work out of the box after following instructions. Purchased through amazon initially and the watch was missing wrapping and the white stopper on the dial. Sent back when Eone website offered grad15 discount only to be sent a watch that doesn’t work. Directions say to carefully remove white stopper from dial as it may become detrimental to the watch if pushed inside. Is that what happened? Watch never worked. Disappointing but still I think the concept is neat. I actually purchased the Bradley watch and I think the time markers are SHARP. The edges are razor thin, which is weird considering this is a piece you might have to touch to read.

The Bearing in it was intriguing to my husband as we own a Bearing company! My grandsons all want one too!!!

Ok, so I own many titanium watches but this sucker is truly unique. The ball bearings tell the time and are easily dislodged from the hidden magnets but easily return to the proper time with a giggle of the watch. Fit and finish is truly superb. One other thing… When I first opened the package I was kinda let down as any watch collector can tell you that a watch can be judged by it’s box. This box is a “lay flat” which made me think cheap. NO my brothers, this box is awesomeness with the box and manual filled with braille and truly top quality.
Lots of compliments coming my way. Slap something different on your wrist with this sleek design.
As an optometrist, I LOVE that this product exists. I got it for my husband for an anniversary gift just because it was unique and I needed something leather. He gets compliments every time he wears it. It does take some getting used to as far as reading the time goes, but it’s really cool and it holds up!
Nice design … exactly how it’s described. I was concerned about some negative reviews saying it was noisy or didn’t work too well … those reviews are BS. Even if the metallic ball gets loose it snaps back into place. Watch works perfectly as described.
Showed it to a few people as soon as I got it and they all loved it. Build quality seems solid and the strap (got “orange”) is quite nice.My only reservation about keeping the watch right now is the case size. If you have larger wrists or prefer larger case sizes, you’ll want to think carefully about this purchase. I pretty much never buy 40mm case size watches but do own one. I decided to give this a try because I love the unique style. However, it just looks very small on my wrist – almost toy’ish. I also prefer watches with some weight and this is incredibly light, which is a plus for many people.I’m not 100% sure I’ll end up keeping it but by every objective measure, this is a great watch.
