Back in 1972 few consumer gadgets were as cool and sought after if you could afford one, as the led watch.
The Pulsar watch’s debut on the Johnny Carson show in 1972 kicked off the craze – the Pulsar P1 is generally accepted as the first electronic digital watch.
After a rapidly changing market over 3-4 years, LEDs were replaced by the more efficient LCDs and generally forgotten. Fast forward 40 years and the must-have horology (watch) item is…the vintage LED watch.
Along with vintage LED(light emitting diode) and LCD (liquid crystal display) watches, we offer some modern items from that era. All without the rush & hurry of auction bidding. We examine, clean, repair, each vintage watch presented here – all work being done by me, Ed Cantarella, your digital watch repair & sales guy. I love having the opportunity to customize, fit or otherwise bring that perfect piece together.
The color scheme is intentionally “old-school gaudy” – paying homage to the blinking,flashing gadgets of the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s.
Look around and thanks for showing up!
