So what is better, analogue or digital? Well, to be honest there isn’t too much of a different between the two different styles. Analogue watches normally have displays with miniature clock faces, usually with a 12 hour hand and a minute hand. An analogue will normally have marks for every hour, in some cases this can also be represented with Roman numerals. A digital watch is similar to an analogue watch; however the face will normally have the numbers represented by digits rather than hands, markers or Roman numerals.

With their most obvious difference being their displays, the idea of the popularity switching to digital in the 1970’s seemed like a natural change. However over time, both types of watches have remained a firm favourite. As both watches successfully tell the time, the both can tend to have additional functions and features.

There are many pros to an analogue watch, for instance, the classic and antique appeal the overall watch has, there are a vast amount of designs, and the watches tend to be made from more durable materials and are normally suitable to be worn for most events. The pros of a digital watch differ from that of an analogue, with the main pro being that digital watches tend to be cheaper, the precision of a digital watch is outstanding, their digital screen is easier to read and they can provide the finer details of the time to hundredths of seconds or milliseconds.

The cons of analogue watch are the pros of a digital watch, these pro features on a digital watch cannot be found on an analogue and that is what ultimately sets them apart. The main down side of a digital watch is that they are not seen as fashionable, as they tend to have a more casual feel and appearance to them.
