Looks like part of it is digital, so I would advise against.

Probably not. Part of that watch seems to have a digital screen.

ETA: Just amazon search analog watch and there's plenty to choose from. Pick one with Prime and I recommend doing a timed section with the watch so you can be at least somewhat comfortable with using it.

its not supposed to necessarily have a timer... you more take note of the hands and where 35 minutes would be.... (or reset the minute hand each section(difficult with lack of time but if u start at 12 u know 35 is end of S1, the 10 is end of S2, and 45 S3 and can reset during break for last sections OR get an analog with the outer ring that spins so you can adjust that at the end of each section)

I just rest mine to 12:00 between each section. You should have plenty of time. VERY helpful.

I use a watch with a chronograph but they are usually rather expensive.

Just get a watch with a rotating bezel. They're pretty cheap.

Yes.
I just bought a Casio watch with rotating bezel for ~$15 on Amazon.

I would highly recommend reading if any reviews mention how loud your watch ticks (if there's a second hand). The original watch I was going to use was a Timex that ticked insanely loud, and had to borrow someone's watch that had a silent ticking.
