Judi Dench given ‘powerful’ glasses to see late husband’s watch on The Repair Shop

OHMYGOSSIP — Dame Judi Dench was given two pairs of “powerful” glasses on ‘The Repair Shop’ to enable her to see her late husband’s watch.
The 87-year-old actress – who was married to actor Michael Williams from 1971 until his death in 2001 – took a timepiece once belonging to her late husband onto the BBC One craft show, but she was unable to see the team’s work until horologist Steve Fletcher loaned her his spectacles.
Steve said: “She was looking at the watch and couldn’t see the engraving we’d put on the back. So I loaned her my glasses and she said, ‘I can see it so well now.’ ”
The Oscar-winning actress was then presented with two pairs of glasses – which provide up to five times magnification – by the TV star and could see “everything about the watch” in what became a “lovely moment”.
Steve told the Daily Mirror newspaper: “She could see everything about the watch and it was a lovely moment. She could use them as really powerful reading glasses. Sometimes the simple things work.”
Judi told Steve: “You’re so very kind.”
The ‘Belfast’ actress – who was diagnosed with age-related macular degeneration in 2012 and has been coping with sight loss ever since – previously explained that she had to “find a way” through her vision issues.
She said: “You find a way of just getting about and getting over the things that you find very difficult. I’ve had to find another way of learning lines and things, which is having great friends of mine repeat them to me over and over and over again. So I have to learn through repetition, and I just hope that people won’t notice too much if all the lines are completely hopeless!”
