For Your Eyes Only: The Secret Microphone Wristwatch Worn by Cold War Spies
This week, the top watch story was no doubt the introduction of the new Bond watch, a $9,200 limited edition Seamaster that will be worn by 007 in the upcoming No Time to Die. With that in mind, we thought we’d lead off this week’s “Watches, Stories, and Gear” with a story from our archives about some real spy watches. These “watches” can’t actually tell you the time, but they look the part, and feature recording capabilities that were at the heart of mid-century spycraft.
