But as has been discussed in this thread, you're not allowed a watch, analogue or digital, in A level or GCSE exams in the UK.
If you do try and suggest a digital clock to the centre, there are specialist exam room digital clock available. I've no idea what they cost.

When did this come into force? I was allowed a watch when I did my exams a few years ago. I think I even had it on the table with me

It changed to watches having to be removed and put on desks a few years ago and then in September 2019 they were banned completely - it just wasn't feasible for invigilators to check the functions of everyone's watch for every exam and people were cheating with smart watches.
