Hamilton Brings Back The World’s First Digital Watch As Worn By James Bond

Back in 1970, Hamilton and a company called Electro-Data unveiled their Pulsar watch prototype, which would go down in the annals of history as the world’s very first digital electronic watch. The watch was so impactful, it was even worn on the wrist of Roger Moore’s James Bond in Live and Let Die. Now, to pay homage to that legendary timepiece, Hamilton has brought it back for the modern day.

Stylistically speaking, this new edition looks just like its old-school brethren. In fact, the stainless steel case is even offered in either a silver or limited-edition PVD gold finish (1,970 examples) — down to the link band and pusher. Furthermore, it boasts a digital quartz movement, has a sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective coating, and is water-resistant to 100m. However, it’s not all retro; the dial has been upgraded to a hybrid LCD-OLED display visible at the push of a button. These retro redux watches will be available soon for $745 (silver) and $995 (gold).

Purchase: $745
