Hamilton PSR — The Legendary LED Watch Is Back With A Bang

HomeHot TakeHamilton PSR — The Legendary LED Watch Is Back With A Bang Hot TakeHamiltonHamilton PSR — The Legendary LED Watch Is Back With A Bang A space age classic that changed the way we tell time by Balazs FerencziMarch 18, 2020 MIN READHamilton PSR — The Legendary LED Watch Is Back With A BangHamilton is going to shake things up again with their new release, the PSR. A timepiece that, back in the ’70s, brought the space-age era to the dusty watchmaking tables of traditional Swiss watch ateliers is making a comeback. It was the hottest thing on the market back then. And I have to say the new one is not too bad either.
The original Pulsar came out in 1970, exactly 50 years ago. To celebrate this anniversary, Hamilton releases the PSR, a remarkable reinterpretation of the iconic ’70s quartz wonder. On the outside, the watch shows a striking resemblance to the vintage model. Inside, however, you find a quartz movement that has been reworked to meet 21st-century expectations.

Breitling Revives The Legendary AVI Ref. 765 With Three New Limited-Edition Models

In the long history of pilot watches, there is perhaps no more visually iconic chronograph than the 1953 Breitling AVI Ref. 765 “Co-Pilot.” While its Navitimer stablemate may be more famous, the clean simple forms and external rotating steel bezel of the AVI ref. 765 became the de facto template for pilot chronographs for decades, influencing designs from the likes of Dodane and even Breguet. As part of the brand’s continuing push to reintroduce classic models into its lineup, Breitling has premiered the limited edition AVI Ref. 765 1953 Re-Edition in three different versions. The stainless steel iteration is a remarkably faithful recreation of the classic original, while two further editions reimagine the design in precious metals.

All three iterations of the AVI Ref. 765 1953 Re-Edition begin with a 41mm case. Apart from a very minor upsizing from the original, this reissue case is nigh-on identical to the 1953 original. The lugs may be a touch longer, and the 12-hour bidirectional..

Back in the 1980s and early 1990s, it wasn’t a bestseller. As with many classic models, it needed more time. Among collectors, it is now one of the most sought-after watches ever produced by Sinn.
Behind every good watch, there seems to be an equally good story. The origins of the Sinn 158 are so unusual because the model’s predecessor wasn’t born in the Sinn factory at all. Nowadays, it is commonplace to assume nothing but vertical production. But the meandering past of the watch industry often has a historical treat in store, if only you dig deep enough.
