[Poll] Your favorite type of clock

What do you prefer?

I added "clock that runs counterclockwise" because I've seen them, they're numbered with 1 on the left and 11 on the right, and the hands run backwards. It's a cute novelty gag, but not practical since it defies convention.

I'll say "other", but I won't explain it, because I like ruining the goddamn poll base.

I went with analog, 12 hour, numbered. There was no option for choosing battery life, but the clock I have in mind happens to have excellent, excellent battery life. When the years pass by and you do actually have to change the batteries, you always forget how tricky it is to hang the goddamn clock again because you hardly ever have to do it. Excellent battery life, excellent battery lifestyle.

I prefer analog clocks with Roman numerals, because if you ever forget how Roman numerals work, you can count on the clock to give you the absolute correct Roman numerals from 1 to 12, without exception.

My wife bought me a Kit-Cat Clock and it's the first thing people can see when they enter our home. That is by far the greatest clock ever made and I will not sanction any other buffoonery elsewise.

I once saw a clock in a bar that ran backwards and had all the numbers printed backwards as well, It was designed to be seen through the mirror over the bar so it would look normal. I always though that was pretty neat.
