I've used the same 8" Mitutoyo analog calipers for more than 30 years. (They were gifted to me for measuring Dungeness crab in the field.) So they're obviously reliable, and I don't have any trouble reading the scale. But many, if not most, digital calipers are dual-mode: English/metric. To convert to metric, I have to have my calculator handy. (25.4 is as emblazoned in my brain, as 256.) Otherwise, I'm happy with the analog calipers and expect to use them until they become part of my estate -- along with the calculator.
