Russian Digital Watches:
The first electronic digital watch seen in the USSR was probably one of the original Hamilton-Pulsars pre-ordered by Leonid Brezhnev. The effect of this watch on Soviet development policy relating to quartz watches can only be speculated upon, but it is clear that in the early digital era the Soviets were keen to stay as close to the technological bleeding-edge as was possible.
