    Announced in New York City, at a press conference in The Four Seasons restaurant on May 6, 1970 the Hamilton Pulsar was the first watch ever to feature a ‘solid state wrist computer’, developed by Hamilton in its hometown of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. It showed time by having its button pushed to make the time flash in red LED numerals on the dark screen. Holding the button for longer would then reveal the passing seconds. And lastly, the watch could be set using an interestingly implemented magnetic bar hidden in the bracelet.

    Nearly 50 years on today, Hamilton is announcing the return of the Pulsar in a modern day reincarnation with all of its 70s charm. The shape of the 2020 watch’s case is taken directly from the second generation of the watch made in 1973, and has the same dimensions of 40.8mm x 34.7mm. The similarities, however, stop here with the technologies inside having been given the thorough 21st century treatment. The new watch has been given a hybrid LCD/OLED, always-on display, developed by Hamilton with the Swatch Group's R&D department.

    The LCD technology in the screen is what allows for the always-on function and, therein, is able to display the time constantly with very low energy consumption. The OLED portion of the screen lights up to provide better visibility, using ‘digit dot’ style numerals, when the button on the right of the case is pressed.
