Vintage 1972 Pulsar P1 Prototype LED Watch On eBay

By Andrew Liszewski

Watch collectors who lean towards the high-tech might want to break out their credit cards for this one. The 1972 Pulsar P1 by Hamilton USA was the first LED watch ever sold to the public, and according to the description on this eBay auction, the limited run of just 400 pieces were eventually all recalled. So finding one that’s still in working condition, with the original box, is quite rare. And that’s probably why the seller has listed it with a ‘Buy It Now’ price of $25,000. So, any takers?

    My uncle had one back in the disco days!! I recall the display wasn't always on, you actually had to press the button on the side to get it to display the numbers.

    I am the new owner of this watch. It was posted an additional two times on ebay, finally without reserve. It went for just over $7400, and is now one of five in my collection, and one of three with original box.

I bought a stainless Pulsar new in 1974, and that was ultimately the watch that set off my collecting passion…now over 325, with 100 in solid gold.

    I’m trying to sell my stainless steel.  I bought it in July 1973.  Needs the battery replaced and has never been opened since I bought it.  I still have the box, case and the pamphlet that came with it.
