ANY IDEAS FOR A WATCH FOR SOMEONE WHO HAS LOST THEIR SIGHT?

Found 1st Jun 2009
Hi there, new to HUKD. Unfortunately my father in law recently lost his vision. I wanted to get him a watch , either a talking one or one he can feel where the hands are on the dial.
He actually lives abroad and speaks Spanish, so a watch that can speak to him in Spanish, else feel the hands would be ideal.

I have looked on RNIB website but the language would be in English. I'm travelling to Spain in a couple weeks but have no idea where to start looking. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks in advance.

I know thats a bit expensive, but something like that would be nice.

Why does he need to feel the numbers on the dial :?. He would need surely need to feel the hands position to determine the time

As above ^^^^^^^ just ask someone :thumbsup:
