The Pulsar P2 worn by Roger Moore was featured in the Bond movie “Live and Let Die” and it was the the world’s first successful, mass-produced digital watch.
The first scene is the only time you’ll see the Pulsar. On the technical side, the first electronic module had 25 ICs (Integrated Chips) and was completely transistorized with no “moving parts”. That in conjunction with the LED digital display started the digital frenzy.
We love the unique way you can set the time, placing a horseshoe magnet on the case back. Amazing.
It had the capability to show the time (hours, minutes, and seconds) and got popularity during the 70s. A lot of celebrities, including Gianni Agnelli, worn this Pulsar that costs like a Rolex at the time. The LED technology were later replaced by LCD watches.
