Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?

"What time is it?"  "I don't know, it's dark."

My requirements for a watch:
It indicates the current time accurately and is readable day or night.  It's waterproof.  I prefer analog to digital.   That's not too much to ask is it?

My analog Eddie Bauer watch works fine and has withstood years of water sports with no problem. I can read it without my glasses during the day.  It has a light and fluorescent hands.  However, the hands only glow for a few minutes after it's been exposed to light so in the dark, when I push the glow button I can see the face of the watch but no hands!  How do you tell the time without hands?  Guess?
