Even more ideas here...
This discusion could last very long, i have thought many time on this.
Like if it was possible to make a standar watch case and then program it to show what we want.
I cant undestand what stops us with all that technology around us... perhaps the part of the copyright issues maybe.. i dont really know...
I thought mostly on digitals because i like the functionality first, but its nice to hear that i could turn it to analog when i dont need the extra functions.
If you and your friend think it more serious please let me know, i could (i wish) give you some ideas for the digital part of the watch.
By the way there is a very interesting programmable ( digital only i think) watch, if you want to take a look:

Hello again, to tell you the truth i dont really know details for the specific watch, the main point of my suggestion was the possibility of programming a watch.
It just seems to me very interesting and i think that we can easily make a serious basic digital watch that will overcome the usual compromises (i could write down at least 10 of them at casio line) that companies make in many watches, for unknown or no logical reasons (perhaps for selling more wathes? )...
The first watch to allow you to switch was the Casio A201:

Oh my word... I had a A201 when I was at school... and that was a very long time ago!

If not, you will find it in smart watches like Pebble with different watch faces.
actually so many watch faces that you become another hobby for collection ... LOL
