    Pulsar 2001 solar watch capacitor?

    I found an old watch I used to wear in the 80's. It is a Pulsar 2001 solar watch. It keeps good time as long as the sun is on the watch but the capacitor is bad. Anyone know where to get a replacement. I no longer have the owners manual to know what voltage or size it takes.

    Perhaps consider removing the capacitor. There should be some markings on it. Run a Google search and I'm sure you will find a replacement.

    If it were only that easy. I took the back off and found no capacitor in it. I vaguely remember when I lived in Philadelphia in the 1990's I took it to a guy who said it couldn't be fixed and gave it back to me. he must have removed it and never replaced it.

    Is this the watch?
    1984 Pulsar Quartz Solar 2001

    If it's a v103a or 104 caliber you may be out of luck for the actual capacitor. It can still likely be repaired but the capicitor will have to be substituted/adapted. These guys might be able to do it: http://www.time-repairs.com/watchrepair/w4-3.htm
    Or here (they may be able to help):http://www.stewarttime.com/
    If it's a v145 caliber, then it uses this one:

    Here is a pic of the watch. It is neat but if I can't find a capacitor it is no big deal. It would be cool to get it running though.
