Analog Digital Watches

Analog watches have the traditional appeal of a classic clock face, but additional functions and features such as the date can be a little harder to work out and to read at a quick glance. 

Digital watches on the other hand can provide plenty of functions, but the digital 12:00 style of displaying the time isn’t to everyone’s taste. 

If this sounds familiar, what you need is a timepiece which combines the best of both worlds – a digital analog watch. 

A hybrid analog/digital watch offers a traditional clock face display, but with added digital features. 

These watches – we’ll call them ana digi watches to make it less of a mouthful! – are available in a wide range of styles, from a rugged and sporty design to withstand everyday wear in a demanding job, to something more sophisticated. 

We’ve rounded up some of the best ana digi watch designs on the market to give you a speedy overview and make your selection that bit easier. 

We’re also giving you our tips on the main features and considerations to bear in mind when choosing an analog digital watch combo.

Analog Digital Watch Buying Guide


In the world of watches, movement refers to the mechanism that makes the hands move and any other features such as a chronograph or stopwatch. There are two main categories of movement – mechanical and quartz. If you’ve ever seen the inner workings of a watch or clock with a number of round cogs (called gears), this is a mechanical movement. The watch wearer winds up the watch, using a spring mounted on the side of the face. This creates the energy to power the springs and cogs inside the watch, which ensure it keeps time. Creating these intricate components is a skilled process, so you’ll tend to find mechanical movements in luxury timepieces, particularly those of a traditional design.
