If You Can Read This Post

You probably don't need this watch.  But you just might know someone who does.

One of the coolest things I got to see when I visited the Auguste Reymond facilities in Tramelan were the braille watches.  Which means exactly what you might think - watches made specifically for the sightless.  A smart phone will not be of much use to someone who can't see the screen.  And a "talking watch" is an even bigger potential liability as it has the potential to disturb those around the wearer.  

While I realize that there are many who may feel that this is a "low tech" approach, it is one that works, and one that I am pleased Auguste Reymond continues to follow through it's ARSA brand.
