The Comet quartz timepiece by Alexandravision was developed for visually impaired people and features an attractive shape and pleasant feel, appealing to visually impaired and sighted people alike. The Comet pendant is shell-shaped with a rounded bottom. This sturdy watch is not waterproof.
Three buttons on the back of the pendant used in combination give the time very simply by discrete vibrations, allowing you to privately check the time in noisy or crowded areas.
Setting the time is easily done and the watch conveniently features batteries powerful enough to last more than five years. See the Product Use tab for details.
These watches were conceived to be of a simple use. The time is indicated by inaudible and discreet vibrations.
There are 3 buttons:
Upper button for Hours
Central button for Tens of Minute
Lower button is for Minutes
A brief pressure with the thumb on the upper button indicates the Hours,
a brief pressure on the central button indicates the Tens of Minutes,
a brief pressure on the last button indicates the Minutes.
A short vibration indicates 1 unit and a long vibration indicates 5 units. The indication range for the Hours is 1 to 12, for the Tenth of Minutes 0 to 5 and for the Minutes 0 to 9.
3 short vibrations indicate 3 Hours or 30 Minutes or 3 Minutes depending on the pressed button,
1 long vibration indicates 5 Hours or 50 Minutes or 5 Minutes depending on the pressed button,
2 long vibrations followed by 2 short vibrations indicate 12 Hours,
no vibration indicates 0 Tens of Minutes or 0 Minute depending on the pressed button.
The buttons may be pressed in any order. For example, you can check just the Tens of Minutes and then the Minutes.
Press and hold the upper button to set the Hours
Press and hold the central button to set the Ten of Minutes

The pressure has to go beyond a long vibration which indicates you are in setting mode. Each of the short vibrations that follows, counts for 1 unit and adjusts the watch until the button is released.
To set the Hours at 9 o’clock, press and hold until you have felt the long vibration followed by 9 short vibrations. Then release the button.
To set the Tens of Minutes to 0, press and hold until you have felt the end of the long vibration.
Then release the button.
The time can be set in any order. For example, you can just set the Minutes. Hours and Tens of Minutes will not be affected.
