The Bradley Timepiece
Tell Time By Touch or Sight
Originally designed for the blind in mind, this ingenious wristwatch enables visually impaired individuals to tell time through feeling the small metal balls on the face and circumference of the watch.
And the design doesn’t restrict the consumers, even people with healthy vision can enjoy wearing the timepiece. It’s sleek and minimalistic design language speaks of unique presence, at a significantly cheaper price.
Old models of wristwatches for sightless were clunky and inefficient, sometimes annoying. But unlike its predecessors, this watch is a breeze to use by the visionless as they will only need to feel balls ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) that return to place when the watch is shook, instead of hands that needs to be recalibrated whenever it’s moved. There are two balls that tell different fractions of time. The outer ball signifies hours whilst the inner one tells the minutes. This contraption enabled the inventors to achieve it’s minimalistic design.
The only drawback that I can see is that it’s not mechanical, meaning that every once in a while the battery dies out and you’ll be required to replace the battery for it to work again. That is honestly the only con I can find of this product but if you don’t mind replacing batteries well the watch will quite literally suit you perfectly.
