Not really my favorite, just a really impressive piece for longevity’s sake:

I bought one of these some 15 years ago when I first started playing. I have never changed batteries on it. It still works perfectly fine. I would have though the batteries themselves would have exploded by now. It has gashes in the plastic from being used as a bottle opener. Doesn’t care.

My wife is on her second Korg tuner. They don't last forever, but the first one lasted her 15 years.

Mine is an antique, I have no idea when it was built. It came with the case of one of the first violins I was given as a tot, still going strong to this day 20+ years later. I use it for my ukulele now that my guitar is fancy and has a tuner built in.
