Early Pulsar watches are now becoming more collectible, and you can see why with this watch. Model reference Y563-8329.


From the serial number on the case back we can accurately date this watch to being made in July 1981.


Pulsar was initially an American company, and released the first LED watch on the market in 1972, which was an eye watering $2,100 back then. They continue to pioneer electronic watches, including one of the first calculator watches in 1975, and a few years later they were bought by Seiko. For many years they were basically Seiko by another name, and in March 2020 they stopped being sold in the UK.

This watch has a fantastic dial, with a mesh pattern dial which is not unlike the appearance of the tapisserie dial in a Royal Oak. Comparing any watch at this price to one many thousands of pounds more in price is always a bit tricky, as you then have to say why this is cheaper. But at this point Pulsar were using stainless steel cases (later they were often chrome) and bracelets, and the folded bracelet is also stainless steel and full length. We have cleaned the bracelet in our ultrasonic bath, and hand cleaned the case and acrylic crystal. You have quick set day and date, and the day can be in English or French. We have just fitted a new battery so this is a well sorted Pulsar watch, and an excellent alternative to a Seiko of the same period.

This watch will be supplied with our branded presentation box and our Certificate of Authenticity.
