Stunning. Looks nicer than I remembered!

I also remember, however, getting into a long philosophical debate at a party once, must have been sometime in the '80s about these very Pulsars because you have to press a button to see the time...

"Time is for everyone!" someone announced, declaring that you should just be able to look at a watch-wearer's wrist to see the time without asking, and we were off to the races. (Non-traditional intoxicants played a role in the two-hour debate that ensued, I can assure you.)
2 hour debate! Lol..

Here is a little something to start you in LCD watches:) Perfect watch to get your feet wet!
Theres a local guy selling this Texas Instruments Star Wars watch. Has historical significance & claims it just needs a battery. Sellers are asking as much as 750 for these. He's asking 30 down from 100 from a year ago! Let me know I'll connect you with him?

I appreciate it but I really only want a Commodore LED watch. Had a Commodore 64 in 1984 and have been a big fan ever since.

Gentleman, im happy to report that after a 15 year search for the right watch @ the right price i acquired 1of 2 grail watches yesterday. A 1973 Pulsar LED. This watch was a big deal in 73 with a retail of $390 or the same as a steel submariner. Additionally it's also a James bond watch appearing with Roger Moor in Live & let die in 73 & the 1st mass production LED watch:)

It's complete with the built in magnet to adjust the watch "no box / papers", with very minor wear. This is 1 of 3 watches that started me down the watch road were on. As a child I tried it on, wanted it but couldn't afford it. Downside is since then I've only seen it in pictures & my hands have grown so I can't even get it on! Lol.. :( Back to searching for extra bracelet links:)

Nice, first time I saw one of these was in the 70's when my sister's husband bought one. I clearly remember it cost $400! Do the math on time-value of money and that would approach GS pricing today. Cool tech of the time.
