OVERVIEW

The purpose of a time piece is to tell time.
We need our watch to be straight forward, and nothing more.

The minimal design of pilot watches during the 1940’s is something that we really appreciate, it takes the least effort to read, no matter of what angle, light source or condition. The design later becomes our inspiration of making the EO-2.

The EO-2 is simply enjoyable, in terms of user experience.

NO MORE BATTERY CHANGE, ALL POWERED BY YOU.

We have always been fascinated by the mechanism of a automatic watch.

However, that being said, automatic movements haven’t been the most accurate way to tell time, it requires re-adjustment and cleaning from time to time in order to maintain its best condition.

For the EO-2, we like to combine the advantages of both automatic and quartz movements, which are no need for battery change and time accuracy.

The EO-2 is powered by a Japanese movement designed by SEIKO EPSON. It is a self-powered quartz movement, it doesn’t require battery changes. The EO-2 has a small mechanism on the back of the movement that spins around when you move. As it spins, it generates an electrical charge which is stored by an internal capacitor.

After the movement is fully charged, power reserve is up to 6 months.

The EO-2 will always be on time, yet there’s no need for battery changing anymore.

3 PREMIUM NATO STRAPS ( ALL INCLUDED )

All the EO-2 watches come with 3 premium nato straps. The Classic Brown-- for Silver Edition / The Classic Black-- for Black Editions, The Suede and The Nylon.

The Classic Brown and The Classic Black are both made of hand picked premium leather from Italy.

The most appealing part of a nato strap is that everyone can exchange and install straps instantly, no tools of any kind is required whatsoever.

We've also have extra holes made on the straps so that they stay fit on all sizes of wrists. ( For both men & women )

You will be really amazed that how you can shift style just by changing the strap of your EO-2, the 3 included premium straps enable the EO-2 to match all kinds of outfits and style.

ONE DESIGN FOR ALL

Not just from a modern point of view, The EO-2 is definitely unisex. You will be surprised that how the EO-2 would look on both a male and female’s wrist.

43 mm wide, we believe that is the magic number for a wrist watch. Not to much, not to less. The EO-2 is wide enough for us to place a slightly larger dial with clear luminous index, which makes this watch so easy to read and looks so nice on both men and women.

It fits all sorts of style in terms of fashion. You wear it to work, you also wear it to all your weekend activities. It simply blends in, you will have no trouble at all switching watch for different occasions once you start wearing your EO-2.

BEHIND THE EO-2

EVERYDAY OBJECT is a design and fashion blog based in Taipei, Taiwan. We have become one of the most popular and influential fashion media in Asia for the past few years.  We've launched our online store at 2013, where you can find everyday objects selected by our staff.

Our team has worked really hard to feature all the greatest daily used products around the world to our readers. The EO-2 project is the actual realization of an ideal daily gadget to us.

IS THERE AN EO-1?

At 2012, we’ve launched a project called the "Hybrid Pilot Watch" at Taipei, where our business was founded.

We only made a limited amount of them and had no idea that people would like it or not. Surprisingly, the hybrid watch project later turned out to be quite a hit.

All the watches were literally sold out within hours. And there are demands from all over the globe, asking us to make some more of them. Despite of a really good start, we had to start working on other projects for our business, the watch project just sort of got discontinued at that moment, until this year.

Risks and challenges

For the past few months, we have been working really hard with our designers, suppliers and manufacturers who by the way are all top of their games. Gladly, we believe that we have most of the details covered.

When the goal is successfully reached, we will start preparing for production. The only reason that may effect our delivery time would be the final amount of how many watches are ordered, if there are insufficient stock of components from our manufacturer, we may need to place new orders from our suppliers, this may cause a minor delay for delivery.

We will surely keep eye on the order numbers and the component stock numbers at all time to ensure that everything will go as we planned.
