If you can't get one I'd be happy to give you one, just cover the shipping charges. I was expecting a couple but they stacked 9 bags. These must have been pre-ordered possibly for shows and promotions.

Thanks! Might be a while before my AD can get a hold of either version.

Ok, just let me know. It's a single swag tote bag design, I just put out 2 bags to show the design on each side. Look likes it's supposed to be included with the Gold PVD version.

Aloha Lloyd, did you receive your gold PSR yet? If see the availability toggle between "available soon" and "in stock". If so any thoughts on the build quality and just general experiences?

thanks!

Good job Hamilton.

I might be the only one here who cares about accuracy, but after over a month I have a good read on it. Looks like around 17 seconds per year which is definitely quite good.

Thanks for the update! I also do care about accuracy as I frequently have to update the time on the vintage Pulsars. I also like the heavier weight of the watch and the butterfly clasp. It's so comfortable to wear.

I do care about accuracy, as those frequenting HAQ on Watchuseek can attest to.

After considering ive decided to cancel my order for the gold version i think it will just sit in its box. I have the stainless model and its more usable for me .

Same here, my PSR was not acquired for daily wear but rather for special occasions only. IMO it's all about how the watch makes YOU feel that makes it special, so choosing the right one is sooooo important and is something you shouldn't settle on or have buyers remorse. Holly if the Ventura has that special place that fills that soft spot I'd say that was the correct decision to acquire it. Enjoy!

Ditto. I have a Ventura Delta in my daily rotation. My PSR will be a special occasion watch, along with a Hamilton Ventura, Synchronar 2100, and a few others. The PSR is heavy, but at least it has a sapphire crystal. Not sure how it will do with scratches.

Yes, there is always the fear of the unintended sound of your watch hitting a wall or railing, ouch! Over time though I feel like I've acquire a reflex to "sense" impending disaster and move my wrist inward to avoid any potential mishaps! I'm not too worried about the crystal as for the most part they are resilient to light impacts or scrapes. The one thing I can't avoid is eventual surface abrasions on the band clasp but the joy of wearing it outweighs all my worries.

Hi I really like what I see. I have a solid gold p1 and a solid gold p2 my favourite, I had P1 but sold it years ago, Bruce wedgman knows about that watch, I still have an origional P1 owners manual, but I must admit this new watch sounds interesting, and I have one LTD edition on order. Also I retire next month and plan on spending a lot more time on my watch hobby. Hope to get to know you all a lot better. Don

Hi I used to have a P1 I meant to say I have A solid gold P2 and P3. I sold my P1 when I needed some money, If I could have kept it I would have. Anyway that is before, I also have many other pulsar led watches and hope to talk with others who do, I have a rolex that my grandfather gave my dad as well

On thing i do think would have been better is the display boxes which i think Should have been the other way round. The silver box for the stainless and the wood box for the gold version. Or perhaps at least the silver box should have been in a gold finish ?

I didn't know the boxes were different, I just assumed Hamilton made a special PSR box for both.

The stainless version comes in a rather nice Light oak coloured wooden box with black/ dark grey interior.

The wood box sounds more handcrafted then the silver one. I'm not even sure if my box is wood, there appears to be a silver like covering over the box. For all I know it could just be a cardboard box with a fancy covering.
