Who on earth could that be at this time of day...
As Bond awakes from his evening’s entertainment with beautiful Italian agent Miss Caruso, he checks his digital watch to see it is 5:48.
007 then dons a natty monogrammed yellow robe to answer the door to an equally not too happy to be up at this time of day, M.
Digital electronic watches were invented in 1970 by the Hamilton Watch Company, under the brand; Pulsar LED. It was inspired by the watch they had previously created for 2001: A Space Odyssey in 1968.
This prototype was ready for the market in 1972, but as a $2,000 gold watch.
Texas Instruments were the first to market affordable Digital Watches in 1975, so Bond was right on cue with this great piece of innovative gadgetry. Making up for the sound blast thing in the earlier scene.
