I used to wear analog wristwatch, but since I work in medical field and the need to wash hands + wearing PPE was high couple years ago, I stopped wearing anything on my hand and wrist.
I'd like to wear it again on ocassion now, but I just forgot where I put it (sadddd) so yeah, phone it is.

I like knowing exactly what time it is so I do check it with whatever I find at hand to confirm, but can usually keep track of time in my head for 1-3 hours if I'm not immersed in something. Even so I prefer other signs that repeat themselves like: a TV/radio program starts or looking at the ending time when you start watching a movie; being hungry or meeting up with someone; the start/ end of an activity; following how far someone has progressed with their routine/shift ...
Usually after a deadline, an irregular schedule or when my sense of time has been crooked for whatever reason I just set a daily alarm or use a wristwatch for a while if I have to go back on routine.

But it's never been all that long since I've last seen the time on a digital device/display, anyway, unless I'm making a guess just after waking up. Enviornmental sound factors in too, natural and manmade.
I take forever to do things, run late, etc, but I'm not too bad at telling what the time it is in the moment.
...the sun keeps setting on me when I'm gardening. 🙁

Well, not really an anime/manga, but I think LOTR trilogy films are legend. I lost count on how many times I rewatch the trilogy and never get bored of it. I tried to read the novel afterwards, but I find it a bit hard to follow the story since it was very detailed (not that it was bad, but it was difficult for me).
As how I tell the time, mostly my phone (or my laptop/tab if I'm working). But sometimes if I'm too lazy to take my phone from my bag/pocket, I just take a look at the sky from my office. I can tell the sky at 12-14, 15-16 to 17-18. It's enough for me to know "Oh yay, it's time to go home" 😂
