Pulsometer Chronograph

Longines revamps the Pulsometer Chronograph, an old model from the 1920s that was principally used for medical purposes. Its pulsometric scale meant this monopusher chronograph made it possible not only to measure time, but also the heartbeat in a simple, reliable and accurate manner.

Pulse measurements used to be taken over a 60-second period and involved counting the exact number of heartbeats during that entire time.

The pulsometer served to remedy potential imprecision. Like the original model, the Longines Pulsometer Chronograph uses the chronograph hand sweeping around the pulsometric scale to indicate the patient’s pulse on the dial after just 30 beats. This timepiece has lost its functionality with medical advances however; it is a reminder of the brand’s watchmaking heritage.

The steel case of the watch measures 40 mm and the watch is water-resistant to 30 meters. The lacquered white dial of the watch has a red pulsometric scale and the watch features a brown alligator leather strap.
