Pulsar first hit the watch market in the 1972 with the first LED watch. Remember those bright blinking computer-like numbers? This was the world’s first electronic digital watch. And by 1975, Pulsar had created a watch with a built-in calculator – another first for the company.Now fast forward 40 years and Pulsar is still in the business of letting its customers make a statement with their wrist watch.
The company is now a division of Seiko Watch Corp. – another manufacturer of fine time pieces. But while Pulsar introduced the world’s first electronic digital watch, today’s Pulsar watches are primarily analog, featuring quartz chronograph movement.
Women’s Pulsar Watches
Pulsar’s signature style for women feature beautiful brushed gold or silver bracelet watches. These sleek stainless steel watches are truly a piece of jewelry around your wrist. Three popular styles include:
Pulsar’s two-tone stainless steel watch is perfect for day or evening. The bracelet links seem to flow from the 18mm case, tapering slightly at the clasp. Dissecting the brushed silver link bracelet is a gold thread that runs down the middle of the link bracelet and around the watch case. The face has a silver dial and gold-tone hands and hour markers that match the gold accent on the bracelet. The bracelet measures 7½ inches long and 17mm wide at its widest point. The Japanese quartz movement keeps you running on schedule. It is water resistant to 30 meters and comes with a five-year limited warranty.
For a different look, consider Pulsar’s black ion-plated stainless steel watch for women. It has the same sleek lines Pulsar enjoys offering, but is somewhere on the spectrum between dark pewter and light gunmetal. The grey rectangular dial is set off by silver-tone hands and hour markers. Whereas the first watch tapered slightly from the case, this beauty is a consistent 18mm wide from the case and all the way around the 8-inch long bracelet. The bracelet closes with a push button deployant. It, too, is water resistant to 30 meters and carries a five-year limited warranty.
Go for the gold with Pulsar’s brushed and polished gold-tone stainless steel watch. Whereas the first two watches described above had square links, this beauty has curved links for a softer, more sophisticated look. The curvy look is also carried over into the irregularly shaped case, which is more like a wavy square. The case features a white dial, gold-tone hands and hour markers. The 7½-inch bracelet closes with a push button deployant. It carries a five-year limited warranty and is water resistant to 30 meters.
Men’s Pulsar Watches
While the women’s Pulsar watches are beautiful, the company did not forget about its male clientele when designing watches that make a statement.
Pulsar has a line of Kinetic watches that men will find intriguing, starting with the Kinetic Tech Gear black ion Finish watch. This sport watch is powered by Kinetic movement. It has an instant-start function and six-month power reserve. It comes in a range of colors: black on black, black and silver, gold, silver and blue – just to name a few. This line features polished silver-tone hour and minute hands with luminous accents and a sweeping second hand, as well as polished silver index markers. There is a date window at 3 and a minute indicator around the bezel. The stainless steel round case marked with the Kinetic logo, right next to the steel crown. This line is water resistant to 100 meters.
Pulsar also makes a line of chronograph watches, offering a multitude of functions. All powered by digital quartz movement, these watches light up, allow for five daily alarms and 30 scheduled alarms, offer the world time for 39 cities, give you 100 lap split with memory recall and a 1/100th second stopwatch that records elapsed time up to 100 hours. This line comes in variety of cases and colors – styles that run from casual to sport to dressy – most with the same functions.
