The Bradley Tactile Watch

We’re not about to go look up where Rolex got its name from, but we can say with near certainty that any watch company would have a tough time topping the Bradley Timepiece in terms of its origin story. The Bradley in this case is Navy Lt. Brad Snyder, who lost his eyesight after an IED explosion in Afghanistan, then willed his way to two gold medals in swimming at the 2012 London Paralympics. Seriously impressive stuff.

Fittingly, the watch can be used by a blind person or someone with sight, as it tells time via two ball bearings, with one indicating hours and the other minutes. The ball bearings are magnetically connected to a watch movement beneath the watch face, so even when they’re touched or moved, they always return to the right time with just a shake of the wrist.
