Do you prefer mechanical or digital odometers?

I am getting my 35 chevy project going again. I started working on the gauges. I have a gauge supplier building a quad, tach and speedo with my artwork. I was thinking of having a few sets built up since the cost is minimal once the initial tooling is done. Maybe I will recoup the investment in my own set, while allowing others to have a set of period correct looking set of gauges.

The question is, which type of speedometer do you like?

Pure analog: The odometer looks like its fits, real spinning numbers. The speedo is a little harder to calibrate. Less expensive.

Electric: The dial looks the same, but that LCD screen looks a little out of place. the electric speedometers are much easier to calibrate though. More expensive.

Thanks for your input, Each screen for each gauge is $250 so I would like to do only one.
