All of us have clocks and watches to ourselves and home. What sort of timepiece do you use or prefer? Is your preference analog or digital. What are the advantages that makes you use either one of them?

I agree with you that digital watches tend to give a more precise reading. However, it does not necessarily mean that the time is correct. Reason? The time is wrongly set or your battery is weak. Analog timepieces are more cool, like you said. I prefered analog for clocks and digital for watches.

These are all habits and preferences. If you ask me what do you like pizzas , bergers, hot dogsor your own iddlies i would say my lovely iddly(An indian rice preparation). then taste and habits differ. I personally still like the analog clock for you have a feeling of the time in mind and the habit of watching the needles on the numbers. But the analog i have found make you more tense as the seconds are ticking away and it is too harsh for a person who is alresdy tense for so many things in life. Life is already short and let us not make it shorter by these time devil that warns you constantly that your time is getting out. This i have experienced more in chess clocks when the time is set for 20 minutes or so. I can hear my heart beats along with the ticking of seconds.
