Stolen Pulsar Euro Calculator LED Watch 904 265

Post23 Sep 2020, 22:48

Hi, this time last week I had listed my 1977 Pulsar Euro calculator watch on eBay UK, item number: 143732131140, a mint condition personal item that i’d owned for years, it had one bid from a member of this forum and then another member outbid him and it sold for £1200. I meticulously packed it in a good quality box with it’s pen, shrunk wrapped it and secured it with clear tape, then dropped it off to the Hermes parcelshop. On tuesday the buyer told me he had just received it and that the box was empty, he said it had not been tampered with but it clearly had, the shrink wrapping was gone, the watch and pen were gone and the box had brown tape (something I don’t have) all over the bottom to reseal it. The watch is gone, I am in shock, everyone on this forum knows how rare the Pulsar Euro calculator is, particularly one that is mint and fully working with the pen. An identifying mark is 904 265 and a tiny chip on the inside of the display in the lower left corner. If anyone sees this watch anywhere can you please let me know, it’s a stolen watch. The person who bought the watch made a point to send me videos of him opening the box with a running commentary of himself finding the box empty. If anyone would like any more information about this situation please reply in the comments or in full confidence please send me a message which I won't share with anyone. I am devastated and violated by this horrendous situation, the thief who did this should be ashamed of themselves. Thank you

I was the winning bidder and took delivery of the parcel minus the watch. I can confirm that I am a long standing Pulsar collector having many Pulsars including 901 & 902 calculators in my collection. I’m devastated for the seller that this has happened. I was so looking forward to acquiring this mint fully working calculator. Please do watch out if you see this watch come up for resale anywhere.

Hi Simon. I was the person who was outbid by Les. I will keep an eye out for it as I do check a range of auction sites for Pulsar LED calculators and yours is quite distinctive. What has the carrier said about the theft?

I am at least happy that seller and buyer are here at the forum and agree that the watch was stolen by a 3rd party. I will make that a "sticky". Hopefully the watch will pop up somewhere sooner or later!

Thanks for comments I still have the Pulsar Lamp Led247 :Hi:

I appreciate if members can keep an eye out for this watch. It’s not every day a Euro 902 comes up. It’s also has a distinguishing mark in the bottom Left of the Led Crystal.

So sorry to hear about the watch - have had similar things happen.

You say it's a unique watch - other than the chip on the crystal, what is unique about it?
