Over the holidays, I spent a little time nosing about in department stores and looking at watches. Here are a couple of ana-digital watches from U.S. Polo Association. Ana-digital watches supplement the traditional hands of an analog watch with digital watch features. It's interesting to see how different watch companies strike a balance between traditional style and futuristic features with analog digital watches.
This first US Polo watch goes in a digital direction with a face that is dominated by digital features.
However, this US Polo watch takes a different tack by emphasizing the analog features of a very readable diver-style watch and adds a little extra digital feature at six o'clock.
I've read a few tweets disparaging U.S. Polo Association as a copy of the popular Ralph Lauren Polo brand. Ironically, the U.S. Polo Association brand is the official brand of the actual governing body of Polo - the US Polo Association. I figure that if I buy a US Polo watch from Kohl's or Sears, I'm a classy guy supporting the sport of kings.
