Forty years after revolutionizing the world of watchmaking by inventing the first digital watch, Hamilton is opening the festivities of this anniversary with the launch of a new Hamilton Pulsomatic, equipped for the occasion with automatic technology.

With its science-fiction design, a case inspired by space-age televisions, and a liquid crystal screen powered by an innovative automatic movement, the 82-hour power reserve H1970 movement, made by ETA.

The case measures 49 mm x 39 mm and is available in stainless steel or black PVD. Functions include hours and minutes, plus the date. The water resistance is rated at 50 meters. A digital liquid crystal display indicates the time, despite the movement underneath being automatic, according to Hamilton.

Retail is $1,495.
