This Equitime Quadtec digital watch isn't just any LCD display with a strap. It takes a different approach to time telling that combines both analog and digital mindsets. During the first 30 minutes after the hour it tells you how many minutes past the hour the current time is, and then after 30 minutes past the hour, it counts you down to the next hour. It's just like the old days, when you asked somebody what time it was at 10:50, they would say, "it's 10 'til 11."

If you don't like that way of telling time, you can customize it to your liking, giving you a readout in the conventional way or a few others as well. And no, there's no "two hairs past a freckle, eastern elbow time." Available with a stainless steel, leather or silicone band, it's $490 online. Although we're not big fans of digital watches, if we were to have one, this would be it.
