A stunning example of inclusive design, The Bradley Timepiece, designed in collaboration with the visually impaired, is named for Lt Bradley Snyder; a US soldier who lost his sight in Afghanistan. A swimmer, Bradley went on to win two gold medals and one silver in the 2012 Paralympics.
Originally designed for the visually impaired, The Bradley offers watches for blind people with a unique and discreet way of telling the time, whether you're in a business meeting or a dark theatre.
The Bradley works by both touch and sight, featuring raised markers at each hour. To increase tactile legibility, there is a triangular marker for twelve, and elongated markers for three, six and nine. The track on the inside of the markers indicates the minutes, and the track running along the outer edge of the watch face indicates the hours. Two ball bearings, driven by magnets rotating around the watch, track the time. As with any other watch, you can adjust the time by turning the crown.
Designed by Eone (Designed For Everyone) the concept timepiece was put up for crowd funding and received almost $600,000. The Bradley has since been nominated for the Design Museum's Design of the Year Award - testament to its unique design and appeal.
