A dealer in America stocks this time piece. Which I have just purchased. I
understand it is an Austrian made time piece, and might be available from
European venders as well. The Austrian manufacturer also makes other
accessible devices. I find it attractive because it has an ear phone jack,
allowing for private listening, and it takes regular triple A batteries. So, a
blind person doesn't have to go to a jeweler to replace lithium batteries.
