People these days wear watches that match the suit they wear and the occasion they are attending at that particular time, this has made manufacturers to make watches of different types and forms, for example the vintage pocket watch that was worn by train conductors.

Analog
These watches have been around for a very long time. They basically consist of an hour, minute and seconds hand held on a face. They display a 12-hour day either using numeral numbers, roman numbers or makers. These watches are considered a formal and classic wear. Analog watches carry some class when worn in proper places like a meeting, on a date or other formal places. This has made well-made analog watches to be very expensive.

An ultra-small battery that is found in small calculators and other digital gadgets mostly powers digital watches. A digital watch is good for non-casual events like sports day. They come in handy during night time, as they have a light on their face.
