I think those new autometer analog ones with the sweep hand would take a longer glance to compute and memorize, however, they do look more old school and cool...., but, I am not convinced you can get as accurate an AFR number with a glance - especially if you have a quick "lean stumble" when you jam the throttle. It can happen so fast, when you hit it, you barely see the 16 to 1 on the AFR before it goes down to 12 again.
The AEM gauges I have show afr number and have sweeping LED analog readout along the outside of the face so it doubles up on visuals to make an easy glance.

Night shot, you can see the gauges on the lower right:
