    Watches with those features usually do. I have one of these:

    A Suunto Core. You need a BIG wrist to put it on, and it is not the most handsome watch around!

    Never understood digital watches. These days all they really are is acceptable jewelery for men. I prefer a nice looking traditional watch for that.

    I find it a lot quicker to read a digital display than to guess the number that two pointers are closest to.

    seriously...you have to guess...I think most of our year 4s or at least year 5s can tell the time on an analogue watch pretty well...

    ...or are you a real child of the eighties when digital watches ruled...

    personally I find the OP's original description on a 'nice' watch a bit extreme...
