Eric - I have an Accu-Gage that I've been very happy with. It is similar to

They also have a 60 psi gauge. When getting some tires a number of years 
ago on my TR6, I spent a while talking to the shop manager. We talked 
about autocrossing and he asked how I checked my pressures. I showed him 
my gauge and he offered to check it for me. They had some sort of way to 
check and said the gauge was right on. If you have a good tire place you 
use, you could check with them to see if they will test your gauge.

This gauge also has the bleed button in another reply and I recommend it 
as a good feature.

They also have a gauge with a filler chuck so you can connect the gauge 
then add air while you monitor pressure.
