The Pulsomatic, a digital timepiece with futuristic design, was first produced in 2010 to mark the fortieth birthday of the worlds first LED digital watch, made by Hamilton. The liquid crystal display on the Hamilton Pulsomatic is powered by an innovative Swiss automatic movement, the H1970. Fully charged, the watch has a power reserve lasting 120 days. It also offers a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and water resistance to a depth of 50 meters to meet the needs of todays fast-paced, robust lifestyle.

A few years ago Hamilton commemorated the Ventura with an automatic-winding reproduction of the original. This is ironic, because one of the distinguishing features of the original Ventura was that it was the world’s first electric, battery-run watch. This year a second of Hamilton’s world firsts is being celebrated at Baselworld. Hamilton’s Pulsar was the world’s first working digital watch and this year marks its 40th anniversary. Once again an automatic movement will replace the original electric one, but it will nonetheless display the time as its original did. Mix Pulsar and “automatic” and you get the 2010 Hamilton Pulsomatic.
Just like a regular automatic-winding movement, the one inside the Hamilton Pulsomatic allows the watch to store and convert kinetic energy using an oscillating rotor. The power reserve of the Cal. H.1970 mechanism can reach up to 82 hours. While power is generated mechanically, the time is calculated electrically and is displayed digitally. ETA originally developed mechanisms of this style to join the quality and durability of automatic with the accuracy of quartz. The extraordinary ETA Autoquartz movements where discontinued in 2006, but still make appearances under different forms within watches made by Swatch Group companies.
The Hamilton Pulsomatic is traditionally futuristic. The watch looks much like many of the first digital watches. The 39mm wide stainless steel case is rounded and simplistic like the original that it is based on. The time is displayed on a black LCD screen which is protected by a domed sapphire crystal and replaces the original LED display. The crystal reflects the quasi-rectangular shape of the case and is marked counter-intuitively with the phrase “Automatic Swiss Made.” The bracelet has also benefited from some improvements since the Pulsar of the 1970s. The stainless steel elements are thicker and they are linked together more solidly. Instead of the entire bracelet being brushed-finished, both brushed and high-polish finishes are used on the Pulsomatic.
* The Pulsomatic, as with the MIIB LCD Hamilton watch released in 2002 is being misrepresented. The Swiss owned Hamilton Watch Company again insinuates they are the same Hamilton company that invented the digital watch. Actually, they have no rights to any claims for the invention or its development.
Unlike the Ventura, which was developed and manufactured by the American Hamilton Watch Company that was purchased by SSIH in 70's, the Pulsar was NOT part of that same watch company. In fact, when the first Pulsar was sold, the Hamilton Watch Company was already spit off from the Parent Company who developed the Pulsar. a must have For any watch enthusiast
