About Us

Talking Watch Shop is an independent, friendly firm which has built a reputation for providing quality products and services to help the visually impaired. The Company was started by Martin Begg, who is himself visually impaired, and therefore has first-hand knowledge and understanding of the difficulties faced by blind and partially-sighted people. Martin is always happy to discuss the suitability of a product with those who are unsure of what is available to help them. As our name suggests, we stock a large range of talking and easy-to-see watches in Ladies and Men’s styles. These are all quality watches with clear, English voices. We also stock clocks and many other talking products which can be viewed on our website. Talking Watches manufactures its own reading machines, designed by Martin, to provide reading assistance at an affordable price. It is a policy of the Company to allow customers to try reading machines and magnifiers for a trial period in their own home. In this way customers can test the product without pressure and take time to consider whether it will actually help them. If it proves to be of no help, it can be returned with only postage costs. Our aim is to empower the visually impaired and provide independence.
