The 10 Best Low Vision Watches For Men
This wiki has been updated 18 times since it was first published in February of 2017. Just because you are visually impaired, it doesn't mean you can't enjoy a wristwatch that's stylish, functional, or both. These low vision watches make it easy to tell the time, thanks to their large faces, oversized numbers and, in some cases, speaking capabilities. We've ranked them here by their build quality, accuracy, legibility, and other functions. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

The previous incarnation of this list focused primarily on timepieces designed to help people with disabled vision to keep track of the time. While that demographic might largely be disinterested in finer pieces of contemporary horology, I thought it was a disservice not to include superior offerings that are among the finer watches on the market and are also particularly easy to read, sometimes even more so than the models made for customers with poor eyesight. Pilot watches were the obvious sector of the watch market where one could find a big, bold case with clearly legible numbers. That's mainly because airplane cockpits are susceptible to a lot of vibration, and reading a watch in that kind of motion is easier when it's a bit larger. The IWC Big Pilot it undoubtedly one of the finest of these, but its price is a sticking point that keeps it from the number one slot. More affordable automatic options abound from companies like Zenith and Oris, and after that we get into the quartz-controlled devices that largely populated the previous list. To these was added a Timex Ironman, which has one of the biggest digital readouts of any watch on the market, even if it lacks the talking feature some people with significant vision problems may require. It is for those customers that we left some of the lesser items on our list, which don't bear any real visual charm, but that get the job done.
