I read an article about a watch being designed that those with or without sight can use. Checking into it further I noticed that it had great style and had an interesting way of denoting the time. It uses two ball bearings, one to indicate the hour and one for the minutes, that rotate around in their own tracks. The hour bearing rotates in its track around the side wall of the titanium case while the minute bearing rotates on a standard watch minute track. It has a Swiss movement. I recommend it to everyone that likes something a little different and would like to support this worthwhile project. This particular one is named after a naval officer who lost his sight defusing a bomb in Afghanistan (2001). He won medals in the 2012 Paralympics. Made by eOne. (The watch shown reads 10 to six)

I just went to the website and it uses a very common watch battery so you can have it changed at most jewelers.

I change my own batteries, but nice to know as I may pick one of these up for myself.

Battery. I have a Seiko Solar that I wore most of the time before this one.

Not that I am aware. Basically it is a blind person's watch that is nice looking and that persons with vision enjoy wearing as well. It was developed by a group of designers. Here is a link that might give a better account than what I am describing.
