I would like something that is simple to use.
Menubar Countdown is good if you just want to countdown something http://capablehands.net/menubarcountdown

Not a widget, but since there's always a browser around, the Timer Tab web app does the trick for me.
Here's a selection of features:
- timer + alarm clock + stopwatch
- works offline
- fullscreen countdown by clicking on the countdown
- keyboard control:
- →, ←, ↑, ↓: control inputs,
- f: toggle fullscreen,
- space: toggle pause
- audio alarm: any Youtube clip
- background: any image on the web
- countdown in the browser tab title and tab icon
Now, if Chrome happens to be the browser of your choice, there's also the Chrome app, providing you with some extra features:
- optional sound and Chrome notification
- use the "tab to search" chrome feature to set the timer
Now, it's up to you to consider if this is a reasonable alternative to a widget.
Geez! A lot of these look like they're from the stone age! Ok, mid 2000s - same thing. Jk Jk.
That said, the best stopwatch/timer for Mac is this new app on the Mac App Store called TeraTime. It's completely free and super easy to use - gets the job done. Being on the mac app store gives it a leg up over all the others solutions here as security and updates are not a concern! Definitely would recommend giving it a download!
Check it out here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/teratime/id1348795218?ls=1&mt=12
Full Disclosure: I am part of the team that created this app.
