Try a digital clock/digital timer.

if its digital then it will need a microcontroller to drive the display its cheaper to then incorporate the timing app into that so i dont think that there will be a 555 there... as frollard says, they are "largely outdated" and i could not agree more; they are pretty cheap though

Very few use the 555 ic, because it's largely outdated by microcontrollers. They're super cheap online (ebay, mouser, digikey, etc)
