Hamilton has been a pioneer of digital watchmaking since the dawn of its first digital watch in the space-age era. With its introduction of the iconic Hamilton Pulsar in 1970, Hamilton has led the way in technological wristwatches. Watches that were later influenced by this groundbreaking model include the various Casio models like the F-91W in the 1980s and 1990s and of course the smartwatches of today like the Apple iWatch. 

The groundbreaking technology found in the Pulsar however innovated the market with its futuristic looks and imaginative features for its time. It was activated only through its push-button operation, mimicking other technologies of the time period such as the push-button phone and the digital calculator. This bold new way of telling the time had a fascination factor that captured the public’s imagination in the 70s. It was worn and favored by the style icons and progressive thinkers of the time, such as Elton John, Jack Nicholson, Joe Frazier, Keith Richards, U.S. President Gerald Ford and James Bond himself, Roger Moore.

Fifty years since the original Hamilton Pulsar was released, the Hamilton PSR now celebrates the launch of that revolutionary digital watch. The Hamilton PSR features a substantial 40.8×34.7mm case, LCD & OLED hybrid dial display, digital quartz movement, and water resistance of up to 100 meters. Updated for the present and future, the Hamilton PSR innovates with its functional features, namely a hybrid display, stainless steel casing, and sapphire crystal. 

The display can be activated at the push of a button on the right side of the case, illuminating the screen with the nostalgic red font of the original Hamilton Pulsar. Unlike the original, however, the watch can also be read clearly during the daytime due to its modern LCD technology, using its OLEDs (organic light-emitting diodes) only when the button is pressed. The sapphire crystal also ensures modern protection and visibility with inherent anti-scratch technology and anti-reflective coating. The cushioned case of the PSR is also easier on the wrist to wear than the original Pulsar. The watch stays firm and tight on the middle of the wrist with minimal sliding movement. 

In addition to the silver edition Hamilton PSR, a special gold edition, limited to 1970 pieces, features the same specifications as the brushed silver model but with the original gold PVP coating. 

Whichever edition you choose, the Hamilton PSR will bring you back to the unmistakable style and nostalgia of the digital watch that changed the world in the 1970s with a new and improved functionality for the modern day user.
