I remember them Wayne, the ones I had are long gone now.

Are they still using the name? Most often recalled is the Hamilton Pulsar which caused quite a stir when it was introduced. In our "Find and Search" you'll find interesting references...


Our "Technical Library and Internet Site Links" has a fine Pulsar L.E.D. link...

I found the ad in a 1988 magazine - have not seen the Pulsar name for many years. The one I remember most was the LED readout model, which I no longer have.

some of the original PULSAR LED readout watches from around the middle 70's are quite collectible, especially the 14K models.

For those who have a Pulsar wristwatch from the 70s the following info may be of some value

The battery used in these watches were 355 Union Carbide. These are difficult to find. In my Pulsar I now use Duracell PX625A

The Pulsar name is now (or was a couple years ago) part of Seiko. I have a Pulsar chrono/alarm that I got from the WalMart web page 2-3 years ago. The stop watch hand moves in increments of 1/5 second instead of jumping a second at a time and looks very much like a mechanical sweep second hand when operating.
