Harry,

A Braille watch is essentially analog print watch that you can open up.  It 
has bumps where numbers normally go.  It does take just a little getting 
used to if you want to feel the time, but it's not that hard really.

>Does that apply to print watches, too?  I know on braille watches they go in five minute incroments - so if the long hand is on the 12 and the short hand is on the 3 it's three o'clock, or if the long hand's on the 2 (or the equivalent) it's 3:10, or ifr they are together on the 3 it's 3:15, etc.  I would just guess it it was about in the middle that it is "3:02, or "3:03," or if it's a little closer to the next number maybe it's 3:04, etc.  Does that help?
