At 12:01 New York time, on May 6, 1970, the world’s first digital watch started measuring time – made by Hamilton. To help celebrate the 40th birthday of this important, digital event, Hamilton is presenting the Pulsonic, a sleek, digital timepiece that marries Swiss automatic movement with a digital face that keeps the Pulsonic powered for 82 days straight.

Truly a well-designed, eye-catching timepiece, the Pulsonic’s case in stainless steel, and the black PVD or gold-plate PVD measures 39mm x 49mm. The watch features a sapphire crystal and is water resistant to 50 meters. Available this October, the price tag for the Pulsonic digital wristwatch is $1,495. [via ubergizmo]
