These are a few unique watches for the blind I found online searching. The first is the Haptica braille timpiece that has a moveable part in the middle that rotates to expose the time in braille. The second timepiece is the x-watch by Damien Kozlik which tells the time by use of LED lights. Where the strands cross the numbers converge and show the time. The middle also has raised numbers in braille. I specifically enjoyed the last one shown, however, because it is so minimal and sleek. Time is shown simply by a large dot for minutes and a smaller dot for hours.
