Default New Acquisition - Pulsar Diver

This landed today. It has a few scratches, but other than that, it appears to be in good shape. Crown screws down properly and when I removed the battery, no sign of corrosion. It has the original rubber strap which is a bit sticky at this point in its life. Really nothing special here, but thought Id share some pics of a early 90s Pulsar.

Cool dial.

If that bezel interchanges with say a 7548 or such that could be a great win on top.

I've been after this model for the past two years, especially since I foolishly "let go" of a spares/repair auction last year. Very nice and reminiscent of the Seiko Quartz divers of the era.

Great watch. I would change out that strap before it fails.

Curious to know what the story is behind Pulsar. Where they a subdivision of Seiko or independent stand-alone watch company?

I like that one and think it would compliment my Pulsar diver. It is a great watch with a Seiko 7546 movement! The Pulsars are affordable quality watches that I like a lot.

You are absolutely right. As much as Id like to keep it on the original, Im guessing it doesnt have much life left in it. At 20mm, Ive got lots of choices.

I have one and I'm pretty sure the bezel insert is a unique size. The watch is 40ish mm. Bigger than Seiko mid size but smaller than 7548.



I'll have to measure to be sure but just eyeballing it next to 7548, it is different.

Thanks for sharing. Glad to hear you liked it. I'm looking forward to taking it to my watchmaker tomorrow for gaskets, battery, and water test.

Love this Pulsar, underrated imho! The case is like a scaled up 2205-0760 ladies diver (which is also the inspiration for the recent Raven Solitude - spot the similarities). I’ve wondered if this was a Seiko design that didn’t cut it with one of the higher ups and was passed down to the Pulsar label, so many Seiko design cues...

Here’s mine:

Looks great on the red, white, and blue NATO. The crown design looks to be similar to the Seiko 7548 Diver.
