.....I knew that Malcolm X had an almost fanatical obsession about time. "I have less patience with someone who doesn't wear a watch than with anyone else, for this type is not time-conscious," he had once told me. "In all our deeds, the proper value and respect for time determines success or failure."
.......... Alexander Murray Palmer Haley (1921-1992) , speaking of El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz (Malcolm X, born Malcolm Little, 1925-1965). From the Epilogue by Alex Haley (written after the death of Malcolm X) of The Autobiography of Malcolm X: As Told to Alex Haley (1965).
I like a digital, but it's not a strong preference. I find that in these days of clocks in all our devices from our phones to our ebooks, forgetting my watch is not the big deal it was at one time.
