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.

No doubt this is a large and hefty man's watch that proclaims its presence on your wrist. This timepiece is bold and has beautiful black carbon fiber and gold detailing. The masculine all gold stainless steel band is substantial. The craftmanship is apparent and this timepiece has all the characteristics of a watch hundreds of dollars more expensive.
You should know Pulsar is made by Seiko and you are getting quality at an affordable price. This is a top of the line Pulsar and this Tech Gear line was introduced last year.
This is an alarm chronograph with flight computer functionality. The bezel is a slide rule that works in conjunction with the metrics imbedded on the dial. I must admit I don't know how to use it and be glad I am not a pilot. The numbering is so small that I can't imagine anyone could use the watch "computer" for real life calculations. But it does look sharp. Like other Pulsar/Seiko alarm chronographs, the alarm is not very loud.
The dials are easily visible and the red arrow second subdial is a nice touch. The calendar magnifier is under the crystal as opposed to protruding above as I have seen on some watches. This is a nice feature as seen on more costly timepieces.
There is a rather large crown protector that I chose to remove. It was difficult to adjust time settings using the crown as the other reviewer Olaf stated. It is awkward and clumsy to manipulate behind the crown protector. I also didn't want it to rub into my wrist. It made the watch look like an orthopedic brace on your wrist :). The crown does not screw down which would have been nice a feature.
The packaging is somewhat lacking as delivered in a throwaway Pulsar cardboard box and not a nice watch case like Invicta or Wenger watches.
For your information, there is a comparable silver version of this watch (PF3789) that is @$35.00 cheaper.
The Pulsar PF3782 is highly recommended and a great addition to anyone's watch collection.
The black/silver version of this watch PF3779 is on sale for $46.00 + shipping. This is an incredible bargain.
But it does have a couple of serious Cons. The second hand is a small, red triangle and very hard to see. I find that to be a stupid design in an otherwise perfectly designed timepiece. Secondly, one of the features that convinced me buy this watch was that it has an alarm. That's rare for a strictly analog watch. The problem is that I can not HEAR the alarm unless I hold it to my ear in a quiet room!! That is a definite design problem.
All my initial concerns about the gold tone wearing badly and 3-5 year battery life are gone. So far the gold tone has kept it's luster and wore well. If you work at an office desk the bracelet clasp can wear from rubbing against the desk edge when typing at a computer. All watches wear this way so it is always best to be careful.
I use the chronograph stopwatch and daily alarm chime almost every other time I wear this watch and it feels good to say that after three years of daily wear the batteries still run perfect and the gold tone still looks new.
-Big face and shoulder but very comfortable. Fits as snug as my Citizen Nighthawk.
-Design cues are very modern but actually come off more classic than fad when you wear it.
-Gold tone is NOT cheap looking or gaudy but looks rich with the red accents and carbon fiber trim confirming a sporty contrast against the classy gold.
-After 3 years of wear and use the Gold tone has not rubbed off or tarnished and still looks great.
-Crystal is Hardlex which is advertised to be scratch proof like Sapphire.
-Nice clear to read dial and easy to operate. Slide rule, chronograph and alarm are few of the many functions.
-Easy to wear with just about anything, anytime, anywhere.
-Stopwatch Chrono functions are pretty awesome and very high tech compared to other similar watches.
-This watch gets a lot of compliments and people asking where to buy it.
-For the retail price of under $500 this watch is a steal. It also looks like it costs 5 times more than what you would pay for it.
-Not solar powered and the manual states the battery has a 3 to 5 year or less life span.
- back light phosphor could be brighter.
-Watch band is designed to fit slightly loose. This maybe a bother for those who like tight fitting bracelets. However the upside of this is the loose bracelet is perfect for summer and hot weather where the wrist swells and tends to sweat.
I purchased this watch three years ago this month not sure whether I would like it (I never wear gold jewelry or full gold watches) and bought it under the pretense that if anything about it looked or felt wrong at all on me then this was getting returned.
After three years with this watch regardless of the minor cons I have been very happy with it. It is such a brilliant time piece that over the years I have purchased three of them: two for gifts to other friends who asked and one as a back up in case it was ever stolen or lost. I realize the PF3782 has become rare and hard to find since it is no longer made by Seiko and sold online.
