News: Earth Day 2023 – Reducing battery wastage and product improvements
Creative: Oliver Perretta
Another revolution around the sun and Earth Day is once again, upon us. Whilst we continue to work on incremental product improvements on the much loved Bradley timepiece, we thought we would share insights on future product development going on behind the scenes.
During our community feedback sessions, many of you expressed strong interest in an alternative energy source that would remove the need for battery changing. Just for context, your Eone timepiece will run for approximately 24 months before needing a battery change, which can be done at any local, reputable watch repair store.
Whilst a mechanically operated Eone timepiece sounds great on paper, it certainly presents its own limitations with a limited capacity – typically up to 72 hours before requiring a wind up and resetting of time.
So it makes a lot of sense to harness renewable energy sources; sun-power to be specific! We are excited to be exploring the possibilities with solar power to completely remove the need for battery replacements, reduce battery wastage and improving our environmental impact.
