She Was Wondering Why Her Blind Friend Was Wearing A Watch. And Then She Looked Closer
March 20, 2015
What if instead of having to look to tell time, you could just feel it?
A reddit user shared this picture of her blind friend wearing a magnetic watch. It's called "The Bradley", created by Eone Timepieces who believes telling time should not require vision.
They created an innovative fashion watch that everyone, including the blind, can touch to tell time.

Instead of traditional watch hands, time is indicated by two ball bearings - one indicating minutes (top), and one indicating hours (side).
These two ball bearings are connected, with magnets, to a watch movement beneath the watch face. The magnets make it so that even if the ball bearings are moved when touched, they spring back to the correct time with a gentle shake of your wrist.
