The Bradley Timepiece designed by Hyungsoo Kim is a simple, effective tactile watch featuring two metal balls rotating in circular grooves on the face (indicating minutes) and at the side (hours).

Initially pitched on Kickstarter, the pledge goal of $40,000 has been superceded by huge demand and now stands at nearly $600,000.

Unsurprisingly, the watch will go on sale this summer in the US with a European launch expected shortly thereafter.
