Pulsar P4 Executive (Stainless)
The curviest, most futuristic Pulsar
The Pulsar P4 Executive is sometimes justifiably described as the most beautiful digital watch ever made due to its simple, clean lines, its curves, and its matching bracelet. The Executive was one of the three styles of "auto-command" wrist-flick activated P4 models made by Pulsar with the other two styles being referred to as the "Big Time" and the "Classic".

The Pulsar P4 Executive was made in stainless steel, 14KT gold fill and both 14KT and 18KT solid gold by special order.
These models had the "auto-command" feature, an innovative mercury switch that allows you to activate the LED display simply by quickly rotating your wrist in a flicking motion. The watch is only sensitive to motion along the axis of your arm in order to make it less prone to activating inadvertantly. A few other models of watches such as the Gillette "Reflex" also featured mercury switch activation, but these were activated by orientation rather than a quick back and forth rotary motion and therefore were not nearly so useful or refined as the Pulsar solution.
This particular model also has the "auto-set" feature, which allows you to set the time and date by pressing the buttons three times quickly instead of requiring the use of a magnet.
Case: Very good.
This Pulsar P4 Executive is in very good condition. The front bezel shows nice brushing with only a few microscopic scratches and the case back is perfect.
Face / Hands: Excellent.
All LED digits and segments are complete and bright.
Crystal: Very good.
The red mineral glass crystal is in very good condition with only a few small visible marks.
Band / Bracelet: Excellent.
The solid link bracelet on this example has excellent brushing and is in excellent condition. It contains all 15 original links and fits an 8" wrist. This watch has a magnet holder and magnet contained in the clasp. The only issue with this watch is that the original magnet is not strong enough to always set the hour so a replacement non-original magnet must be used (which is provided).
Function / Accuracy: excellent.
This watch keeps almost perfect time and all functions work perfectly including the "wrist-flick" capability. The wrist-flick works smoothly with a gentle flicking motion and the buttons work perfectly and reliably with just a gentle push.
