0303, Bradley Element Eone Timepiece, 2017
This timepiece has a round face with tactile markings. Two grooves—one around the side and one on the front—each hold a small ball bearing. Controlled magnetically, the ball bearings move around the clock face. The inner groove represents minutes; the outer groove represents hours. The timepiece is readable visually and by touch, enabling users to check the time silently without glancing at a device. Created by Eone Timepiece in Washington, DC.
