    That's strange, I'm the complete opposite. Except it normally takes me a good couple of minutes to work out what the time is on an analogue watch, by which point the time has changed anyway so I have to start all over again.

    You don't have a "both" category.

    My watch has a digital display in the background which has the seconds, and it's got analogue to tell you the hours and minutes.

    lol, but it's so nice. It's the best description to describe the mechanism. It also has two batteries; which means it weighs more than "standard" analogue watches.

    When I was a kid I got an analogue watch with a cat on it, and the second hand was a little mouse that went round and round seemingly by magic. It took me many months to realise it was actually painted onto a clear plastic disc that span round :rolleyes:

    My watch is analogue, but I dropped it today and it stopped working. It only rattles when I shake it, i.e. something's fallen out or broken. How much does it take to repair a watch?

    it shouldnt cost that much around £10?

    Depends on the damamge, if the watch isn't that valuable then they will sometimes tell you its better buying a new one than repair. Otherwise I guess its all down to the watch how much it will cost.

    New batteries at my local watch gaff cost £7.50 though. :eek:
