  BBC - h2g2 - The History of the Digital Watch
The 'pretty neat idea' (as someone once described it) of a digital watch lies in the inclusion of both electricity and quartz movement in the creation of timepieces during the 1950s and '60s.
This watch was also closely tied to the US space programme being used on the Mercury and Apollo spacecraft as NASA aimed for the moon.
Digital watches even in the late 1970s still necessitated two hands - one to wear the watch and the other to press the button to turn on the LED display.

  Watch - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In naval parlance, watches are a timekeeping convention.
Because these watches are regulated by an external time source of extraordinarily high accuracy, they are never off by more than a small fraction of a second a day (depending on the quality of their quartz movements), as long as they can receive the external time signals that they expect.
In the early 1980s Seiko marketed a watch with a television receiver in it, although at the time television receivers were too bulky to fit in a wristwatch, and the actual receiver and its power source were in a book-sized box with a cable that ran to the wristwatch.

 Humanized > Weblog: A Pretty Neat Digital Watch
The problem is that anybody who has tried to set both a digital watch and an analogue watch doesn't actually think that digital watches are a "pretty neat idea".
My current watch is a Timex that mimics a chronograph digitally but has both an analog and digital face: I can hide the digital part of it by pressing a button and leave the clean lines of a analog watch (which I prefer).
Digital watches are not hard to set, and it'd be very easy to describe the process over the phone.

 Watch Report | Has Casio Perfected the Digital Watch?
Kashio seems to believe that a great deal of Casio's existing and past digital watch technology is "gimmicky" and that "a breakthrough is near." He doesn't get into details, but I think we can assume the gimmicky technology includes things like the camera, MP3, remote control, PDA, and GPS watches Casio has experimented with.
Analog watches are still usually easier to read than digital since the physical separation of the dial from the hands creates depth and more contrast than LCD readouts produce.
The YES Watch, for instance, is an amazing digital watch that not only tells you the time, but, among several other things, also graphically indicates exactly when sunrise and sunset occurs wherever you happen to be in the world.

The signal received on the antenna is demodulated by a tiny onboard receiver, which sends the information to the atomic watch's ultra-low-power CMOS microprocessor for decoding.

Should you move your atomic watch out of transmitter range for an extended period of time, your atomic watch will still continue to operate as a highly accurate quartz controlled watch.
