The Pulsograph Watch

Eighty years ago, artillery officers and physicians numbered among the first users of wristwatch chronographs: the soldiers relied on their timepieces to perform ballistic calculations, while the doctors used theirs to measure patients’ pulse rates without having to continue feeling the pulse for a full minute. A physician wearing a wristwatch with a pulsograph’s scale could start his timepiece’s chronograph function the moment he began to palpate the patient’s pulse. If the scale was calibrated for thirty pulse beats, he would continue counting the throbs until he had felt the thirtieth pulsation, whereupon he would stop his chronograph: the tip of the designated hand would indicate the point along the pulsograph scale corresponding to the patient’s pulse rate per minute. This saved between thirty and forty seconds per patient and was a convincing reason to own such a watch, especially if the physician’s ward rounds required him to measure the pulse rates of fifty or more patients. Wristwatches with pulsograph scales soon earned fame as so-called “doctor’s watches.

Montblanc turned 100 years old in 2006. The famed writing instrument manufacturer is a legend among scribes. The Montblanc logo mimics the peaks of the snow-capped Montblanc mountain, and this logo is synonymous with the finest luxury writing instruments. Since the 1980s Montblanc has commanded a significant marketshare in the upper echelons of luxury scribing tools, and they are instantly recognizable by their logo and tag line, 'The Art of Writing'. In addition to the finest writing accessories, Montblanc also manufactures leather accessories and a gorgeous line of wristwatches.
