The 6" analog dial face caliper I've used for the last 22 years is from Harbor Freight, bought back when the father who started the company was still running the company, and stores were few and far between. In over two decades of service, it hasn't let me down.
I also bought a 6" digital caliper about 10 years later. I rarely use it. Not sure why. Could it be I'm mesmerized by spinning dials? I do find it more informative to observe the approach, departure, and deviation swings in the measurement. The amplitude of these variations is easier for me to track by observing a swinging needle over flashing LCD segments.
All in all, these dial calipers, and other "CenTech" branded measurement products (Harbor Freight's house brand for "precision instruments") have not disappointed. I do wonder however, if the dial calipers that HF sells today match the quality of what they sold 22 years ago.
