Time-touching Watch / watch

Time-touching Watch

“ Time Touching ” is a watch which facilitates THE SIGHTLESS,but is not only for them.It’s a time-measuring device for all of us.
“ Time Touching ” uses your arms as her dial, and two raised dots as her hands. You know the time by feeling the position of the two dots. You can’t see “time,” but you feel its flow and state.
As human skin tends to be dull with long time of temperate stimulation, you hardly feel the dots, and even the watch herself, in most of the time. Unless something reminds you, you ignore “ Time Touching ” just like you ignore the ring on your finger.
