    Does anyone here know a powerful mechanical watch mechanism.

    Which is unmoved by human interference.

    I'm designing a mechanical watch for the blind. The watch has two rotating disks on
    the face with nubs indicating hours and minutes.

    How do i make the disks strong enough so when a blind person touches the nubs on the
    face he/ she doesn't interfere with the mechanism?

    The answers I recieved from the other thread, weren't really that helpful.
    They were basically telling me to stop the project. Which I can't. so...
    I decided to change the project slightly.

    And I'm changing the mechanism to something more traditional,

    so I was wondering where I could get information on the motors used in 'say pocket watches'.
