My x-brother-in-law is blind and he checked me out on his watch. Pretty nifty. He told me that the movement was built to take a beating. What is the movement in your braille watch Geoff?

This too is soo cool, being sighted I like the look of the 77 better but then this one is far better suited to those who cannot see. Geoff, My Dad is going blind now. Besides glacoma he also has some other degenerative optic nerve disorder that will make him 100% blind in the next couple years. Let me know if you come across one of these for sale. I'd like to get one for my Dad.
