Pulsometer Limited Edition 1942
TOP
Inspired by a 1942 model

A medical instrument and effective timepiece, Eterna’s Pulsometer was, by 1942, demonstrating its usefulness on the wrist of medical doctors and nurses. The great timepiece returned in 2010, this time equipped with a self-winding mechanical movement providing 42 hours of power reserve and fitted in a stainless steel case 42 mm across. Each of the 1,942 timepieces has its number  engraved on the caseback. Professional caregivers and historians alike will be happy to see that the Eterna Pulsometer Limited Edition 1942 is visually similar to the historic version. It features the classic dial layout with pulsometric scale, minute totaliser and subdial for the seconds. New on the modern version is the date at 6 o’clock.

Inspired by a 1942 model
With such a rich history, it's no wonder that Eterna was tempted to revisit some of its iconic designs. One of the first is the celebrated Eterna Pulsometer chronograph produced in 1942. Its clever pulsometer scale considerably accelerated the time-consuming task of taking a patient’s pulse. At the time, it was the first and only pulsometer chronograph available to medical personnel in Switzerland. Eterna has now reissued a duplicate of the Pulsometer, with a case slightly larger than the original. As a tribute to its year of issue, only 1,942 individually numbered Pulsometer Limited Edition chronographs are being produced.
