I also like the Caretec Renaissance watch, or the Tiny for ladies. These are
tactile watches that vibrate patterns to tell you the time.
Disclaimer: We do sell both, but I like them as a user as well.
All the best

I had exactly that experience when I bought the cheapest watch I could find at
the RRNIB shop. It lasted about 5 minutes before the big hand fell off.
If you do have the budget, the Bradley really is very good. I've had mine since
they first went on sale (6 years ago?) . I've gone through several watch straps
but the timepiece itself has behaved impeccably.
Wonder if anyone could suggest where I can purchase a good quality men’s
I purchased the £24.99 tactile watch from the RNIB about three weeks ago
and had to return it owing to the minute finger falling off and loose glass
cover. Just received the replacement this morning and hey presto! Whilst
setting the time the second finger flew off.
I was told at my initial purchase that there was no other choice apart from
the Bradley time piece which is well over £200. Is this yet another example
of the RNIB Not Really Interested in Blind people?
