Petrov[edit]

[that Petrov invented the digital watch]

Actually, this is a myth that started after Peter Petroff's death, through the obituary, released by his family. Unfortunately, he had nothing to do with the invention of the first digital watch, namely the "Pulsar" as it is erroneously published in many online sources. Peter Petroff was placed in the CEO position of the merger between the founded by him Care, Inc. and Electro/Data, Inc. which was involved with the development of the Pulsar prototype. Peter Petroff spent only around seven months as a CEO of Electro/Data, Inc., after which he was disposed off due to the accumulation of large debts for the company, after which he went back to being the CEO of Care, Inc. The development of the Pulsar digital watch was started about two years before Peter Petroff got on board Electro/Data, Inc. and was finished and released for sale approximately one year after he was discharged from the company. The real contributors to the invention of the first digital watch were George H. Thiess (founder of Electro/Data, Inc.) and Willie Crabtree who was the Project Engineer at Electro/Data, Inc. and spent four years in the development of the Pulsar digital watch prototype. -- User:208.168.237.85
