in thread I prefer this kind of clock or watch:

On the other hand, unless you want to get down to the level of quanta, you could still call it analog if it has a mechanical timepiece motion — it only approximates non-analog functionality that way.

Also, of course, you could argue that even at the quantum level things are actually analog, since quanta are really only probability waveforms (from a certain perspective at least).

This could get messy if I keep going. . . .
