I know a lot of the older tournament players around here used to use the Talking Timers attached to their mask strap back in the day.
My Apache has a timer on it so the count down is always in front of your face.

The major tournament series started using electronic scoreboards with a big clock in full view of all the players and permitted sideline coaching, thus timers became obsolete.

Sideline coaching is probably the biggest factor.
