Clocks and watches
We offer a huge range of talking, easy-to-see and tactile clocks and watches. Our
radio controlled models automatically set and update themselves which is great when
the clocks change. We have the simplest one button watches that just tell the time,
through to styles with multiple alarms and stopwatches. All with a selection of strap
styles and watch faces. RNIB does not guarantee batteries or watchstraps.
Watch face diameters for the majority of watches are: Large 4cm, Small 3.5cm. Where
they differ, the diameter is listed against the product. With the exception of our one
button watches that just tell the time, all our talking watches feature alarms.
All battery powered items are supplied with the appropriate batteries, and
replacements are available to purchase from us. Some products are mains powered
and this is indicated where applicable.
The battery life for talking watches is often less than in easy-to-see and tactile
watches. If your watch stops working within the guarantee period we recommend you
first try changing the battery through an independent watch retailer or, for a small
charge, through RNIB.
If your bracelet strap needs adjusting, we recommend you visit a jeweller who can
accurately measure your wrist.
Radio controlled clocks and watches
Don‟t want to worry about setting your timepiece when you first receive it or when the
clocks change twice a year? Radio signals from the transmitter in Cumbria ensure
you‟ll always have the most accurate time. Simply place it on a windowsill and it will
automatically set itself, usually within the hour. All models can be set manually, for use
outside the UK. The radio control feature works on the watches in Germany, USA and

Making the best use of lighting in your home is important yet is often overlooked. By
making simple lighting changes you can be safer in the home and avoid trips and falls.
To find out more about lighting visit rnib.org.uk/lighting or order our free guide “Making
the most of lighting in your home”.
Please note: As a guide new measurements are 11 watt equivalent to old style 60 watt
and 18 watt equivalent to 100 watts. Watts do not define how bright the light is but how
much power the light bulb is using. Lumens are a measurement of how bright a bulb is
– the higher the lumens the brighter the light output. We do not guarantee bulbs.

favourite passage or recipe. There is a wide range of DAISY players available and
