Specially priced early bird pledges are now available for the unique project from roughly $310 or £231 (depending on current exchange rates). “The Eone Switch is a new, innovative timepiece that’s evolved from conversations with you, our community, and the belief that inclusion is not just about access, but also the freedom to choose. You choose how you tell time; use touch or sight. You choose your style; with interchangeable Rings. Your timepiece says a lot about you, so choose your message and let the Switch do the talking.”
If the Eone Switch crowd funding campaign successfully raises its required pledge goal and the project completion progresses smoothly, worldwide shipping is expected to take place sometime around February 2022. To learn more about the Eone Switch watch project view the promotional video below.
“Our timepieces feature the original ball bearing design that gives wearers the option to tell time by using their sense of touch or sight. One ball bearing glides around a recessed track on the outer edge of the face, indicating hours, while another circle a track on the top of the face, indicating minutes. Eone timepieces are powered by Swiss Ronda quartz movement and stunningly crafted with carefully selected, high quality, materials.”
“The success of our original timepiece, the Bradley, inspired us to keep improving. We spent over a year talking to users of our timepieces, about their experiences. We listened to what they love, what could we do better, and what they would like to see in our designs. We took those insights and after a meticulous and challenging redevelopment process, the Switch was born.”
