Analog clocks offer some benefits over digital clocks.They visually demonstrate the relative weight of time lapses as a fraction of the remaining time (you don't quite feel this with a digital clock, you just know it via computation).  You can also tell instantly in which quarter of the hour it is and whether it's past noon, evening, midnight without worrying about the actual time. Heck, you don't even need numbers on a clock...just the hour and minute hands are enough to give you reasonable approximations that are just as useful.

Oh, and they're soooo cool looking (canvas required).
