I restore vintage watches also. I have over 200 with 130 restored vintage complicated movements.
Included in this are the following three:
1 One New Old Stock HP-01 in box with all accessories.
2 One completely restored pre prototype with no serial number in
3 One restored example which I wear to work.
I have 3 modules including one which will work and comes complete with a New Old Stock strap (gold case). The other two supply parts including the LED block.
Enjoy the pictures:
I have repaired and restored 4 others for other users, one in England, and three in the US. All 4 are being used.
So YES, I wear it and use the functions. In fact other than my HP 41CX it is the second most used HP object I have.
