There are a number of mainstream and specialist clocks that will let you tell the time, whether you are blind or partially sighted.
Large wall clocks with clear displays can be useful for partially sighted people. There are a number of options on the market that have been designed for anyone who may need an easy to see display. This example from Ravencourt is radio-controlled, setting and resetting itself to the correct time automatically. There are also clocks with yellow faces and contrasting black features, such as this one from Clairmont.
There are many clocks that announce information audibly. Cuckoo clocks or maritime timepieces are classic examples.
