Modules - 501, 502
This model, only available in gold-fill was the first of the Touch-Command production Pulsars utilizing the Touch Sensor buttons. The 5503 came just months before the rest of the TC line-up. The new 500 series modules had a larger display, Auto-set and indicated the day of the week with a two letter display. The 500 series is considered by many as the best LED module that came out of the Lancaster, PA facility.
The rumors of rarity are unfounded as there were plenty of 5503 watches sold to the public. Time Computer was nearing the end so yes, in general terms, there were less sold than earlier models.
There is however, a rare version with the Auto-Command 502 module (Flick-of-the-Wrist). Although all 500 series modules were setup and programmed for the AC feature, only about 5-10% of the 5503 watches had it. No other TC models were factory equipped with the 502. To find this version with the Auto-Command is a true prize for collectors.
This is the only model co-inventor, John Bergey kept to wear after donating his watches to the Smithsonian.
