Even though it may seem like old technology, a simple 'beam type' torque wrench is inexpensive, repeatable, no-maintenance, and doesn't 'go out of calibration'. I've used, checked & calibrated all types of torque wrenches ('clickers', dial, and electronic readout) throughout my career. For my own use at home, I have Craftsman beam-type wrenches that I bought 20 years ago that still work like new.

If you don't like the idea of a beam type, then my next recommendation is a 'clicker' type torque wrench. The only thing you need to keep in mind is that to get the greatest accuracy and longevity out of a clicker type is that you need to keep them clean and lubricated.
