Vintage square talking watch against a white background

They didn't have television, the internet or microwave ovens, but the 1920s definitely had style! This attractive, vintage-style, square-faced talking watch lets you channel Roaring 20s cool, but with up-to-the-minute technology.

The square, metallic grey plastic case with silver-coloured bezel and expanding bracelet strap would be the perfect accessory to slip on your wrist before facing Hercule Poirot in the drawing room…

The clear white face has Art Deco vibes, with bold, black numbers at 12, 3, 6, and 9 o'clock and sharp, black lines marking the hours in between.

Under the vintage looks, hide 21st century features… This atomic watch is radio-controlled in the UK, Germany, Japan and US (Pacific, Mountain, Central and Eastern time zones) so will automatically set the time in these countries (and adjust itself in March and October when the clocks change).

Time and date are announced in RNIB's clear, English male voice at the push of a button, and you can set optional hourly announcements and an alarm.
