I’m looking for a countdown app. Let’s say there’s something super-important going on on day X at time Y. I’m looking for an app that displays the days/hours/minutes/seconds leading up to that day, ideally on a constantly-updated countdown.
Bonus points if there’s a widget. But even an app that I have to open would be fine.

Waiting List on Setapp. I’ve never used it so I’m not sure how good it is or if it does what you want.
UPDATE: I just tested this and it kept crashing so I deleted it. I am on Ventura and maybe it’s not ready for that.

Übersicht with the Count Down widget.
And I just came across this
Hologram Desktop, the notes for which say a countdown widget was just added. I’ve not used it.
Widgetpack can do this (bit of a learning curve but a “countdown to Christmas” widget is provided as an example)

I use Countdowns (to count down to the next Apple event
Countdowns helps you count down to something you're looking forward to, whether that's a wedding, birthday, or new iPhone! Need to count up from it instead? No problem!
Designed to be more than a timer app, Countdowns is great for keeping tabs on...
(Is that a subscription now? For me it was a small one-time purchase, quite some time ago)
Mac or iOS?
On IOS I use Countdown Widget Timer. It has widgets for home screens, allows you to select your own photos.
Co-incidentally, it’s just over 900 days until I’m 50

I’m currently using the countdown widget from
Widgetsmith on my iPhone lock screen to count down the days to my wedding in December.
iOS ideally, although Mac wouldn’t be out of the question.
