Pulsar by Seiko Holdings Corporation.
A spectacular breakthrough
Pulsar was born in an age of optimism. In the 1970's, everything seemed achievable through the rapidly growing technological expertise at the world's fingertips. Space flight had been converted from dream to reality, computer science was developing at break neck speed and electronics seemed to deliver new advances every day. Pulsar symbolized the age. It was new and it was bold, it was surprising and it was different. Pulsar, the world's first electronic digital watch, created a sensation when it was unveiled in New York in 1972 and it changed the world's perception of time.
A tradition of difference
When the brand was taken into the Seiko Corporation in 1980, it brought further surprises to the world; the first calculator watch in 1980 and the first all-quartz watch line in 1981 were among its industry-leading achievements. And throughout the '80's and 90's Pulsar continued to bring to market new products that were born to be different. The Avant-garde collection in 1980's set a new style in women's watches and Spoon in 1990's were unique designs which further cemented Pulsar's image as an ingenious and surprising watchmaker.
Towards a modernist future
Today, Pulsar remains loyal to its heritage. It was born to be different and it will remain so. Each Pulsar watch has the hint of the futurism and modernity that have always been its hallmark. Pulsar is a brand for the individual who appreciates real value and seeks quality with individuality and flair.

Top Customer Reviews
I love this watch. I bought it because of the good price (Approx $69 + shipping) and the flight calculator.
The Flight calculator is actually a standard circular slide rule with additional markings for common aeronautical conversions and calculations.
One thing that is a tad irritating is that all the functionality that packed into this watch forces Most of the labels and indicators to be extremely small. Not so good when your sight is getting weak like mine.
Actually, the markings for the hours 10, 2, 4 and 8 are quite large, so reading time isn't all that difficult even with my eyesight.
The watch only came with a generic Pulsar watch instruction manual which did not cover all of the additional functionality of the watch. (i.e Setting the date, setting the alarm, resetting the stop watch hands to top dead center, etc) and all of the little things that you can do with the watch.
Anyway, you have to copy the number from off of the back of the watch in my case was 7T62 and use that at pulsarwatches-europe.com to find the manual that actually applies to the watch.
There is no documentation to explain how to use the flight computer. To learn how to use that probably best to find you a manual for a Jeppesen Flight Computer and get a good magnifying glass. :)
I've only had it a month and its only lost 2 seconds, but that could also be me not matching it to the atomic clock correctly in the first place. Still that is better accuracy than my last Casio Dataman digital watch that would lose 15 seconds in a month.
So, I got this Pulsar when I was in high school in 2010 as a commemorative gift from my parents for doing some big thing. I actually did a lot of research (for a high schooler) as to what watch brands were high quality in both construction and in style, and tried to find a look that was classy without being overbearingly formal. I fell in love with the PF3183's gorgeous front fascia, clean lines, and quiet sophistication.
I have never had a problem with the watch. At one point the second hand of the timer did get stuck at the quarter-past mark, but I just needed to do an adjustment via the bezel. Very easy fix, all I had to do was play around with it to figure it out.
The slide rule is actually functional in a useful way, according to one of my aviation-acquainted friends. I need to learn how to properly use it, still.
The best-looking and most versatile watch I own. The dark and light metallic colors work very well with every outfit I've tried it on.. The yellow on the chronograph adds a touch of character. I've had several people ask me if it was a Rolex/ other higher-priced watch brands, which is just an indicator of this watch's build quality... it looks good in the photo, better in person.
I semi-regularly wore it throughout high school and college, and it as problem and blemish free. Pass with flying colors.
Note: the alarm is garbage. If you use an analog watch as your primary alarm, you have some life choices to question.
Value for money:
I'm a frugal guy because I'm a college student whose full-time job is passing college, so I can rarely justify spending more than $50 on anything but liquor.Read more ›
I have several watches, but this is my favorite when I want a metal deployment band style watch.
