I picked up this 14k American Foundation For the Blind watch with an AS1790/92 recently and must say it makes me appreciate my good fortune. I wore the watch for one day and attempted to only tell the time by feel and was shocked at how difficult it was to not look at my watch. If you push the crown, the crystal and bezel open so you can feel the dial and the hands.
It is easy to take our health and vision for granted, even the ability to admire the beauty of a watch. I realize there are more ways to appreciate beauty than just with vision but wearing this watch does make me understand just a little bit what it must be like to go through life using senses other than sight. I met and hired a young man a couple of years ago who lost his vision at the age of fourteen and he is an incredible inspiration with his independence and positive attitude. He recently graduated from a top notch university and is now working as a computer programmer. Just trying to tell the time by touch for a day is a challenge let alone all the tasks that without sight would be difficult. It's always a good time to be grateful but especially at this time of the year. And this watch will be put to good use as it was intended.
