The New PLT-1 Replacement LED Watch Module


The New PLT-1 Replacement LED Watch Module

The new PLT-1 is a direct replacement module for the 1970’s LED watches made by Pulsar, Hamilton and Omega.

The original LED dot pattern display along with the plastic carrier and magnetic reed-switches are removed from the old broken / faulty corroded watch and reused with the new PLT-1 module ensuring original functionality.

Installed on a Pulsar Plastic Carrier

A Corroded Dead Module!

Using the best of what modern technology is able to offer we have recreated all the functions of the original watch module plus more!

Four modes of operation, faithfully recreating the original functions of a one or a two button Pulsar LED watch module or Enhanced modes of operation offering additional features not available with the original Pulsar modules.


Higher precision than the original module is achieved by using a high precision Flexural Tuning Folk Quartz Crystal which is housed in a hermetically sealed heat resistant ceramic package. The module is then factory trimmed and calibrated for even greater accuracy.

The modern Ultra Fast Trench MOSFET Enhancement Mode Field Effect Transistors LED display drivers deliver a bright, crisp LED display as well as a uniform dimming function across all display segments.

Pulsar P2, Module #2900 Single Button Time Only LED Watch.
Pulsar P3, Modules #3100, #3013, #3120, #3130 Dual Button Time and Date LED Watch.

The Concept of Operating Modes
We have introduced the concept of operating modes with this new PLT-1 LED Watch module. The operating mode is selectable through the configuration menus and allows the module to operate with different personalities!

A single button (Time) or a dual button (Time) & (Date) operating modes fully replicates the original functions of a one or two button Pulsar watch.

One Button Standard Mode

Two Button Standard Mode

As well as the two standard modes of operation we have included two enhanced modes of operation offering additional features not available with the original watch.

Using the enhanced modes of operation a single button (Time) only watch would be able to display in addition to standard Time functions, the Date, Weekday and Year! A two button (Time) & (Date) watch would be able to display, in addition to the standard Time and Date, the Weekday and Year.

Additional Settable Features
Regardless of the mode of operation of the new PLT-1 module, additional parameters can be set through the Configuration menus to enable or disable features such as low battery warning, variable display turn off delay and display brightness adjustment.

    I sent my vintage Hamilton QED Watch from the USA to be repaired. Pulsar LED Time (Ben Azari) installed the PLT-1 module while maintaining the watch's original LED display and magnetic time setting functions. I was extremely pleased and satisfied with the work Ben did on the watch. Email communication was great and I understood what was going on with the watch every step of the way. He tested the watch thoroughly before informing me that it needed a new module and the watch was repaired in a timely and cost-effective manner. There are just a few people who are capable of fixing these unique vintage timepieces. I would give Pulsar LED Time and Ben Azari my highest recommendation.

    My 40 year old Hamilton QED watch needed a complete overhaul. Pulsar LED Time replaced the module, tuned and cleaned the watch returning it in better working order than when this watch was first purchased in 1973. I give Ben 5 STARS and highly recommend that anyone needing to restore their vintage watch to working order have Pulsar LED do this delicate work. Great job Ben and thank you for your EXCELLENT service!
  • Author: Morgan
    Ben is absolutely amazing. He went above and beyond the call of duty to get my Pulsar operational. He kept me informed during the entire process. I would highly recommend Ben and his services to anyone looking to get their LED watch repaired.
  • Author: Hardy Wood
    I could not be any happier, thank you so much Ben. I had tried to find someone who could fix my Pulsar 3120 watch for a number of years. I bought this watch 40 years ago and now it works like the day I bought it.
    Thanks Ben

    I purchased a Pulsar on August 9th 1974, the same day Richard Nixon left the office of president here in the U.S. I was a young guy and thought the watch was the coolest thing ever. I loved the uniqueness of it and it never failed to elicit reactions from people. It stopped working in early 1976 and it sat in a drawer since then. I thought the most I could do was show the non-working watch to people and tell them how ahead of its time it was way back when. Then I found Pulsar LED time and Ben Azari. After a couple of E-mails getting things set, I sent my old module to him so he could use some parts and Ben sent a new module back to me. After reassembling the watch, I pushed the button and saw the display light up for the first time in decades. I was amazed and transported back to another era with so many memories. As others have mentioned, I was kept informed every step of the way and the turn around time was very fast. Ben, thanks so much for bringing a wonderful part of my past back to life. If you have an old Pulsar or other vintage digital watch that needs repair, look no further than Pulsar LED Time!

    What can I say? Ben is amazing. His professional handling of my Pulsar P2 was just that. From my initial email inquiry to receiving my watch back in very quick turnaround. After searching for what seemed like forever all over the internet I truly felt the watch would never see the light of day again. After Ben received the watch and inspected he assured me that with a PLT-1 transplant it would again come alive. Last night I wore the watch out for the first time in over 35 years and was very proud to again wear it with pride. Thank you Ben for all of your expertise.

    How strange it was to press the button on my old pulsar last week. For the past 40 years, I would occasionally take it out of the top drawer and press the button even though I knew nothing would happen. But last week it arrived from Dr. Ben and this time when I pressed the button, memories flashed as bright as the display before me! For a millisecond, I was back in the U.S. Air Force in 1974 in Biloxi, Mississippi where and when I had bought it. Very cool Ben! Thanks for the time travel!

    I have an Omega Time Computer purchased in 1974. This year the watch failed all I could get on the display was a single digit, I checked with numerous watch repair services in Swansea but no-one could offer any help. Then I found Bens web Page. He carried out the necessary repair within a week, I am realy pleased with Bens work and would recommend him to any one. Many thanks Ben.

    Ben made **miracles** on my dead module Omega TC 1. The watch is now fully functional again with its new PLT-1 module inside... in bionic (ie enhanced) mode... It was a real pleasure working with Ben from start to finish... I shipped the watch to the UK (from France). Ben fixed it, polished it and returned it... awesome work. THANKS again Ben for your patient explanations and your hard work. Marc M

    Great work, Ben did a GREAT job on fixing my Pulsar, I would recommend PLT-1 to anyone that wants to get another 40+ years use from a timeless design watch. Ben made it painless to send from USA to England and back again. Thanks Ben

    My Pulsar stopped work in the late 80s. I had sent it out to different repair providers with unsatisfactory results. I came upon Ben website and decided to give him a try. After many years sitting in a drawer, I am not able to again wear my Pulsar, which now keeps perfect time. Ben's charges are reasonable and the turnaround time quite acceptable. Thanks Ben.
  • Author: Chris B
    Having purchased a non working P2, I read about Ben's work and after exchanging emails sent the watch for his attention. Sadly not only was the main module acid damaged, but the original dot display as well. Ben advised that both needed replacing and he would attempt to source the correct dot display - imagine my surprise when I received an email just a week later to advise all the work was complete and the watch ready to be returned.
    Having received the watch today, I cannot commend Ben highly enough in the quality of his work - the display is bright and crisp, all reeds work as intended just as when it left the factory in '73. Timekeeping will be judged in due course, but if it loses or gains a few seconds, so what - it's only time. Superb.

    Having owned a Pulsar P2 and having some reliability issues with it I found Ben's website. After corresponding with Ben i was able to send my P2 to the UK and have it repaired. My watch has a lot of memories and to have it working better than new it so fantastic. Thanks Ben, will certainly recommend any repairs or servicing to you AWESOME
