    Let's See Some Tickless Quartz (Ana-digi)

    As some of you know, my greatest nemesis is the misaligned seconds hand on quartz. I was thinking today about the various strategies for fixing that.

    1. Perfect alignment. I've seen it, usually on Citizens but also on Grand Seiko watches. I was lucky enough to get a Timex with perfect alignment but I figure that will never happen again in this universe.

    2. Sweeping quartz. Bulova's the king here, but most of them aren't my style.

    3. Two-hand quartz. My favorite of these is by Uniform Wares but I've seen a few other nice ones.

    4. Digital seconds. Today's thread. Of course all digital watches are perfect, so I thought I'd bring up ana-digi watches that have analog time with digital seconds. To me it's a perfect solution. Casio does it well, but if I'm not mistaken I've seen Seiko, Breitling, and a few others do it. Somebody here probably knows which ETA quartz movements do it.

    Since it's rude to start a thread without pictures, here's what I dug up with a couple of minutes' thought:

    What am I missing? I'd use the search function, but what do you search for here?

    Guys, I really really really do understand that there was a hack and that my password was reset, but I'm about to take a year off from WUS if you can't stop telling me about it every time I log in. With my password. That you reset.

    I hadn't seen that one. What's the little yellow hand for? Is it only chronograph seconds?

    I was looking at the Tissot T-Touch for a while but heard they drain batteries fast. I think I read one battery every two or three years. There are a few G-Shock an-digi I've seen but no model numbers are jumping out at me. My favorite ani-digi had to be the Chronosport UDT, but that has a second hand.
    State of the Collection: Seiko Alpinist SARBO 17 A.K.A. "My Precious", Orient Mako with a alpha numeric code too complex to remember, Traser 6500, Casio "Heart of Darkness"/PRW-1500YJ Pathfinder, G-Shock GW-S5600

    Looks like I can add Citizen Navihawk to the list, but none of the Eco-Drive models in their current lineup.

    Speed hand, you can measure elapsed time, lap times and split times. It's a racing watch.
