In real life, it's because the device was not introduced until the Second Doctor story "Fury from the Deep". However, retroactively "The Day of the Doctor" implies that the First Doctor did possess one as he was involved in the effort to save Gallifrey. He just never bothered using it in any of the on-screen storylines.
