I restarted to work with electronics around 15 years ago.
At the beginning I decided, not to use analog meters (except on audio amplifiers) anymore. Those are not precise, outdated, etc.
But the things are changing.
I started to working on a project, what done some weird things. I guess, with changing the load, the power voltage is dropping and disrupting the input measurement.
This is something, I will never see on a regular digital multimeter. I either can use some higher speed data acquisition and record the result on a graph, or use an analog multimeter and see the needle movement.
Actually I don't have none of the methods actively setup at my lab.
I decided to go to the easier way, and get an analog multimeter working.
I still have an old Russian meter from the soviet era, inherited from my grandfather (he were the person teaching me electronics, when I was six). This meter was lying on the ceiling, as I didn't use it.
This meter wasn't switch on let say 30+ years.
This can be seen on the batteries left in it:
