The Bradley: A Tactile Watch for the Visually Impaired


An innovative fashion watch that everyone, including the blind, can touch to tell time. Telling time shouldn’t require vision.

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.
