Watch Wednesday – Pulsar

It’s Watch Wednesday again! Today we will be featuring watches by Pulsar. Pulsar is a division of the Seiko Company. While Pulsar was the world’s first electronic digital watch, today Pulsar watches are usually analog.

The first Pulsar, was a brand of The Hamilton Watch Company,which announced that it was making the watch in early 1970. It was developed jointly by Hamilton and Electro/Data, Inc. In 1972,  the first Pulsar watch was marketed by The Hamilton Watch Co. (the parent company, not the Hamilton Watch Division). With an 18 carat gold case, the world’s first all-electronic digital watch was also the first to use a digital display — created with LEDs. A button was pressed to display the time. The first Pulsar initially sold for $2100 ($12,100 in 2012 dollars).

In 1975 a digital Pulsar with a built-in calculator (operated with very small buttons) was introduced. I remember wearing one in the 80’s!

Seiko Corporation acquired the Pulsar brand in 1978. The Pulsar brand serves as Seiko’s mid-grade offering and is positioned above the Lorus brand and below the Seiko brand of watches.
