The Pulsar 901 Calculator

Post25 Jan 2018, 21:48

For such an important watch, it can be somewhat complicated to find information. So i turn to you the forum of specialist for you are my only hope. Does anyone know if number 1 still survives? I spoke with a man who owned a refinery in LA in the early 80's and he claims to have scrapped at least 15 of them. So how many do you think still survive? From the first batch of 100 anyway.

Oh and thanks for having me....

If we are talking about the 1822 (18K solid gold), I have serial number 003. To my knowledge, that is the lowest surviving number. There were five "runs" of 100 watches, making it one of the few Pulsar models for which we have an exact production figure.

The one in my possession is serial number 17, do you know of any that fall between 3 and 17?

All the best,

Negative...but, that doesn't mean that there aren't one or two out there. Communication by owners of solid-gold models has been sadly stifled by one particular collector who had part of his collection stolen as a result of thunderously stupid actions on his part, and he has been fueling paranoia about public admissions of ownership of rare Pulsars (the P1 in particular) ever since. I have repeatedly exhorted collectors to make the existence of rare models known, without significant response. As a result, we have pitifully inadequate knowledge of the existing watches (unlike the coin collectors, who, by virtue of the professional grading system, now have amazingly complete registers of virtually every rare coin there is, allowing a true, accurate means of determining relative scarcity and value). It would also allow instant determination of whether or not a watch is a "new" one, in the sense of being recently uncovered, and appearing for the first time to collectors. I am interested ONLY in documentation of the existence of a watch, not its location. A photographic registry of all the solid-hold Pulsars would be of inestimable value, not only to current collectors, but all future collectors, as well...
I find myself motivated to make yet another appeal...

P1 Limited Edition

233, 348, 384, 454, 483, 484, 498, 542, 612 and P305602 (the only known P1 in solid 14K gold)

1822 Calculator

003, 081, 182, 307, 338, 413

1823 Calculator

8029, 8069

I have also posted pics of the solid-gold watches in my collection in another thread...not hard to find.
I think what I'm suggesting is a worthy project; no time like the present to get it started...
