A Watch for Blind People -- Really

I don't know many blind folks, but if I did this would make a great thing to give them. It's also pretty cool looking for sighted folks who want to check the time without seeming rude or visibly being seen to be doing so.

I think so too. I like that it's not super expensive, even if the price has gone up a bit, and is a different, modern looking watch that stands apart from what one usually sees. Lord knows a lot of modern watches are a bit too "something" for me to seriously consider wearing them on a more or less regular basis. Kind of like how a gem encrusted watch is too "something" for a lady to wear daily, but is just fine in certain situations.

All the best.

It's sad that this will probably be worn more by people who can actually see.
