Wenger Braille Watch

Wenger TerraGraph Braille 

This watch has actually been around for a few years now but it recently came to my attention that we have never done a blog entry on it.  And to make things even more interesting, this watch is also somewhat unique in the watch world today.  For people who are vision impaired, there are only a few option available, most of which are really cheesy talking watches.  These are usually cheaply made, loud and embarrassing.  Assuming you want to know what time it is in a public setting you can't help but call attention to yourself.  But what other options are there?  To be honest, not many.

Fortunately, there is the braille watch from Wenger.  The Wenger TerraGraph Braille Watch is a nicely made Swiss watch that won't break the bank and allows for a much more discrete way to tell time.  The pop-up crystal allows the user to tell time anywhere very easily and without making a scene.  The classic analog design is attractive and well suited for any occasion.  

This classic braille watch combines the traditional watch design with a cover/crystal that can be opened using a push button to reveal a braille raised dot dial and sturdy reinforced hands. The Wenger Braille Watch, model #72345, is one of the very finest watches made by this extraordinary Swiss manufacturer. Wenger uses the skill developed as a maker of precision quality instruments to develop a strong, durable, fully functional braille watch. As the picture up top indicates, the crystal pops up to allow the blind wearer to "read the dial" with the touch of the fingers. For the sight impaired who have limited vision, the dial has large, black, easy-to-read numerals and heavy black hands.

The watch case is made entirely of fine Swiss Surgical Grade Stainless Steel and the crystal is scratch resistant hardened mineral glass. This watch is also entirely SWISS MADE to the highest standards. The Swiss quartz movement has jewels at all precision wear points, assuring astounding accuracy.

The attention to detail is exceptional, as you would expect from the makers of the "Genuine Swiss Army Knife"and makes this watch stand out above the rest.  For more information and ordering info please visit our store: Gem of the Day.  There you can find more information, detailed features about the watch and pricing information.
