Does Your Watch Have Balls? The New Black Titanium Bradley by Eone Time Does!


Feel The Time

New Launch, The All Black Titanium Bradley Ball Bearing Watch

Get one reserved today as we expect them to sell out fast! These are now available to pre-order and will be shipped in early November.
Designed and created by US design company Eone Time, The Bradley is a tactile timepiece that allows you to not only see what time it is, but to feel what time it is.
Instead of traditional watch hands, time is indicated by two ball bearings — one indicating minutes (top), and one indicating hours (side).
These two ball bearings are connected, with magnets, to a watch movement beneath the watch face.The magnets make it so that even if the ball bearings are moved when touched, they spring back to the correct time with a gentle shake of your wrist.

The timepiece is named after Bradley Snyder, an ex-naval officer who lost his eyesight in an explosion in Afghanistan in 2011 yet went on to win gold and silver medals at the London 2012 Paralympic Games.
It was launched after a hugely successful Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign and has since been nominated for Design Museum’s Design of the Year award.
This version comes with a black stainless steel mesh strap and black titanium case.

MB&F introduces Limited Edition Titanium Horological Machine No.1 - The HM1 Ti

MB&F introduces Limited Edition Titanium Horological Machine No.1 - The HM1 TiI had a blast trying on a MB&F HM1 (and HM2!) late last year and decided to buy one if Max would give me an installment plan of $100 a month for 1500 months. Sadly, I am still sans Horological Machine.

But now I have my heart set on the Ti, a just-announced limited edition of ten HM1 in Titanium casing. Maybe a layaway plan this time Max?

From Max just a few hours ago...
"We will be unveiling on September 7th HM1-Ti, a very special 10 piece limited edition of “Horological Machine No1” . Out of the 100 HM1 movements to be crafted between 2007 and 2009, only 10 will conjugate this amazing Titanium case (a real feat to achieve) with a new sapphire dial partially unveiling the Tourbillon system and the amazing hour/minute floating synchronizing wheel."

MB&F introduces Limited Edition Titanium Horological Machine No.1 - The HM1 TiHM1-Ti is an extremely sophisticated timepiece on many levels: visually, technically and emotionally. As much, if not more, art and sculpture as micro-engineering.

HM1-Ti is an avant-garde three-dimensional timekeeping machine broken free from constraints imposed by traditional horology.

The relatively light weight belies the architectural volume of HM1-Ti's grade 5 titanium case; a case whose complex modular construction enables every part to be independently

The radical three-dimensionality of the case construction may turn heads; however, the
totally original and highly intricate movement inside, with its 376 parts and 81 functional jewels, ensures that HM1-Ti will turn minds as well.

MB&F introduces Limited Edition Titanium Horological Machine No.1 - The HM1 TiThe challenge of applying a variety of multi-faceted fine finishes to the difficult-to-work titanium has been rewarded by the vibrant juxtaposition of light reflecting off the contrasting highly polished and matte-satin surfaces.

An extra-wide custom tapered strap, complemented by a bespoke white gold and titanium folding buckle, completes the timepiece and reinforces the highly technical nature of the case.
