in reply to I prefer this kind of clock or watch:

Other possible options:

  • Foucault Pendulum - Remember seeing these in science museums as kids?
  • Atomic clock -- But this is still a type of "digital" clock. Common digital clocks use an oscillating crystal for timing. Atomic clocks use an atomic resonance frequency counter, but both types require digital means to make sense of the timing source.
  • My internal clock

    One more possible option: water clock (if I only had the $$ or the room), which is a bit of a step up from the clepsydra. .
      If you like it, you may enjoy the hydraulic calculator the same man (Bernard Gitton) made for the Science and Industry museum of La Villette, in Paris :)
