Tactile Time-Tellers
The Touch Watch by Christopher Konings Can Be Read Through Two Senses

By: Meghan Young (Superstar) Mar 5, 13

As second nature as it has become for most people to glance at the time now and again, there are moments in which that could be considered very rude; thankfully, the Touch Watch allows people to do that without offending anyone unnecessarily. Although its tactile surface would suggest the Touch Watch was made for the blind, it also can be read visually. Thus, telling the time through the sense of touch is purely for special situations.

Designed by Christopher Konings, the Touch Watch has an ultra-minimalist aesthetic that makes it look as good as it functions. This simplicity also helps the wearer read the time easier. At the press of a button, the hands move to the correct time, allowing the person to feel for the small and big hands.
