Somewhat surprisingly, even people who are unable to see care about their appearance as much as anyone else.
This alone makes this watch a great gift for anyone who’s visually impaired, but there’s a lot more to be said for it besides.
Telling time with it is far easier than learning Braille. The small metal ball on the face serves as a minute hand, while the hour is indicated by another running along the edge.
The major clockface markings (3, 6, 9 and twelve) are slightly higher and longer than the others to help you find your way.
The ball bearings won’t fall out, but are kept in position using magnets; you can move them by pressing with your fingers. Getting them back to the correct time just requires wiggling your wrist, though.
This watch is comparable in price to an entry-level fashion timepiece, but frankly looks a lot better than many of them, even disregarding its unique functionality.
You certainly get what you pay for: the titanium alloy case seems nearly indestructible, while the metal mesh strap should last you for years.
Depending on the style you choose, your watch may come with a leather or fabric band instead.
A cheap talking watch may accomplish the same job, but you’d be hard-pressed to find one which is as stylish and well-made as this one. Even people who aren’t visually impaired love this timepiece, as well as the compliments it elicits.
