Giveaway: Pulsar By Seiko Mens Automatic Watch   watch giveaways

This month I have for you a Pulsar by Seiko Men's Automatic watch. The specific model available for one lucky winner is the Ref. PS2004, which is the two-tone model (silver, gold tone) on the steel bracelet. This is the most expensive one of the mix, but I wanted you to see what the entire collection looks like. These watches are brand new for 2010, and features exclusive 21 jewel automatic movements. There is an "open heart" dial which has a window to the moving balance wheel in the movement. Not small at all, these watches are 44.9mm wide in a steel case that is water resistant to 330 feet. Bracelet is 20mm wide and in steel with a fold-over safety clasp, while the watch crystal is Seiko Hardlex. Dial has applied luminant on the hands for darkness viewing. The watch features a caseback window for an addition view into the movement.

These are great looking classy timepieces with a beautiful mechanical spirit and high, Seiko quality. Japanese in spirit, the Men's Automatic watch collection hearken back to the mid 20th century in terms of design and function, with enough modern elements to make them highly relevant for today's watch lovers. Price for the 2010 Men's Automatic watches starts at $199, but this top of the line model retails for $250.

These new Pulsar's are great, I was going to purchase one but it was my mothers birthday. I got it for her, since she prefers men's watches for the visibility. I am a watch collector, so I like all movement's. However an automatic or mechanical movement brings you to another level. It is truly special to see the sweeping hand ticking away. Secondly the exhibition back allows you the beauty of the mechanism's at work, it shows the true craftsmenship of the watch maker. Thanks!!

As a young child I remember my fathers automatic watch. I remember the sound it made. I liked the fact that he didn't need to wind it up. There is just something about the engineering that goes into it that I have always appreciated.

i like machanical watch because it had long life as compared to battery one
so it is the best one.

I used to be alright with quartz when I first started collecting watches...but now that I've purchased my first automatic, I find myself wearing it exclusively. My other quartz watches, from Diesel, may be interesting, but nothing is quite as exquisite as watching the escapement wheel turningand the rotor spinning inside the miniature engine on your wrist. The movement truly is a piece of art and science; and I surely can't say the same for quartz movements.

It's the difference between having a finely tuned time piece and having a mass produced wristwatch.

Mechanical. Ahhh. Please let me win because I could never convince my husband to purchase a mechanical watch for me. I love the machine, the tick, accuracy and the fact that someone put it together who really cared about it. I have been using a pocket watch from over a century ago, but the second hand just fell off.

Mechanical watches are green because they don't use batteries that are then dumped off in a third world countries. You don't have to worry about them. They are a window into the past when things were actually made better and certainly not mass produced. Generally, people make mechanical watches, not machines stamping them out 24/7. It's a mechanical watch or nothing

Bernardo

I love the fact that their these mechanical machines self contained to tell the time. Everything you need is there. No battery power, no sunlight, to atomic radio frequencies.... It just needs you. What other machine that you have can you say is powered by you?

Love mechanical watches as a nice diversion fro the all-electronic world in which i tend to live

Plus, I'm a drummer, so it's nice to have a watch that's keeping time all by itself, just like I have to do behind the kit!

Mechanical watches are much better because I love the idea of the tiny machinery working continually on my wrist.

Love automatics. If the wife would let me, I'd go out and buy an oris or Tag Carrera today! Let me win please! Quartz watches are so dead compared to an auto that you can feel and see it breathing almost.

Ken

I have to agree with some of the other posters, I do own an accutron and one quartz movement watch but once you go automatic there's really no going back.

I used to think quartz was just fine...until I got my first automatic! It feels and looks more like a little machine, like an old school alarm clock versus a digital clock radio.

PS I still love my Tissot quartz, though!

The Mechanical movements the art of watchmaking, the quartz movements just like a beer commercial... As hungarian, I'm very proud of the hungarian watchmaking. One of the best watchmaker who is a member of the AHCI, Becsei Áron is also Hungarian. :) Bexei rulez!!

I hope I win!! I love mechanical watches because of the design and ingenuity that goes in to creating each movement. It's amazing to think that much complexity can sit on your wrist. Thank you for posting this giveaway!

I like the fact that you power the watch, whether its by winding the crown or just wearing it on a daily basis.

And the sweeping second hand can be very mesmerizing!

Mechanical watches are somehow romantic in this electronic age. I feel the same way about them as I do about sail boats in a world of power boats. Why do people sail when they could zip along at high speed? Because it speaks to their spirit. It's the same with mechanical watches. Quartz watches can be handsome and they can be effective, but they offer no romance.

Mechanical watches whirl, make noise, they have a rotor, a balance wheel. What's not to love with mechanical pieces.

The mechanical watch is a live organism - you can hear it, you can see it, you can feel it .....

I like this watch because you can see the heart of the watch. While I love my two quartz campanolas, I like watchig the internal gears and balance wheel moving inside of an automatic.

Todd

I like the mechanics of the watch, plus I like the thought of something being self-sufficient; not adding batteries to the waste pile.

Alex

I am just fascinated by the mechanics of mechanical watches. It's also fun to see the movement through the back or front.

I have always preferred mechanical/mechanical automatics over quartz watches. My first watch was given to me by my grandfather when I was 8 years old, less than a month before he passed away from a heart attack. He was a retired railroad man, as he was a steam engine mechanic, who learned how to work on diesel engines in the early 1930's, thus ended up being moved to El Paso, Tx to work as a mechanic there. His most prized possession was his "Railroad" pocket watch, which my father, now 80, has in his possession. His next prized watch was his 1940's Gruen Auto Wind...which is the watch he gave me. It was a gift I have treasured for over 40 years now. The watch has had a new crystal, and has been serviced many times for regualr cleaning, and is still amazingly beautiful and very accurate!

Love the smooth sweep of the second hand and the fact that they are good for backpacking- battery won't die on you.

I have always loved mechanical and Quartz watches most my life, but after I attended A Nevada "Watch and Clock" repair School back in 1992 thru 1994 I came to Love and really appreciate the Automatic/mechanical movement time piece. When you tear down the complete watch,100 pieces plus, then carefully and systematically clean it,and then reassemble,lubricate, and grease the Main spring, oil the pivots,and rubies, and lastly time the watch piece, you will truly see, and know the difference, between the Quartz Watch and the Mechanical work of Art that they are, not to take away any prestige from the Quartz Watch of today. If you have any doubts about the difference, just look at the price, you will pay to service these two totally different Watch Pieces for all you watch lovers out there. Trust me a Watchmaker, God Bless the Mechanical Watch.

I'd like to have two pulsars: one, the battery-op toothbrush, is an advance over the manual. The timepiece, well, it only works while I'm alive...and ticking.

On the front page of my scant website I mention a quote by Blancpain as to the idea that a mechanical watch is a part of a culture where a quartz watch is mostly a piece of technology. Technology is ever changing, but the culture of the mechanical watch is here to be collected and maintained.

For seaports, airports and sports, choose quartz.
For something less tyrannical, choose mechanical.

I find the construction of any mechanical watch amazing and especially love watching all the minuscule parts work in tandem with each other in glorious harmony.

Quartz can't touch that.

I love the fact that you have more of a relationship with a mechanical watch. You know that it is a piece of machinery that was built for you. Time was put into it and it has character.

Richard

It really is about the level of art and engineering, that's why I prefer a mechanical watch. There is a level of independence as well, as in not needing a battery. With a quartz watch, it is counting the days until it's battery simply dies.
