At the BIN price, no. The opening bid is closer to the mark, at $14.5k. It does have the setting magnet (a big plus), but no boxes, papers, or owner's manual. $13K would be a good price, $12K, a great price. This one has not been available to collectors before.
Top-end...minty, working, boxes, all papers and manual, spare magnet, registration card...$20-25K. Probably only about a dozen out there, this complete.
It should be borne in mind that, at 50 or so known, the P1 is far from being the rarest Pulsar...I can think of half a dozen models that are numerically MUCH rarer...the 3140, the 7725, any of the three types of 18K Calculators, the 6414-2, the 5420-2, the 1201 and 1211, the 7409...and several others. Only two 14K P1s are known, and I have not seen a model number associated with this variation.
But it carries the distinction of being the world's first electronic digital watch, and thus enjoys a particular historical significance.

hi all the p1 went unsold again, the person selling is now an old man with no one to leave the watch too, so maybe it will come down in price a little
