RNIB large radio controlled talking watch - leather strap

Product code: CW135
£59.94 (inc VAT) £49.95 (ex VAT)

The ex VAT price will apply to blind or partially sighted people, or someone buying on their behalf.

This global radio controlled talking watch will announce time and date in an English, male voice. It also features an alarm and an optional hourly announcement.

This talking watch announces both the time and date in RNIB’s natural English, male voice. Just press the top button to hear the time and the bottom button to hear the date.


It is radio controlled, which means it receives a signal from the radio transmitter, which enables the time and date to set and regularly update automatically. This is particularly useful when the clocks change in the spring and the autumn, and therefore means you should never have to change the time manually unless out of the signal range.

You can set your watch to receive either the UK, Germany, USA or Japan (60 KHz) time signals. When you select a new country the watch will adjust to the local time.

If you are outside of the UK, Germany, USA or Japan and cannot receive a signal you can also set up the time manually.


This watch also features an alarm and/or hourly announcement. It is fitted with a black leather strap. The watch case measures 4cm in diameter.


This watch is available with either a black leather strap (CW135), a metallic bracelet strap (CW135BR), or a metallic expanding strap (CW135EXP).
