  • ⌚️Bulova Computron LED Watch Review ADDED on 06/23/2019



    Bulova Computron

    As electronic and quartz watches began growing in popularity throughout the late 1970s and 1980s, Bulova continued to forge ahead with innovations.

    Bulova catered to the era's growing demand for digital timekeepers by adding a line of Accuquartz watches with digital LCD time displays, and eventually, the all-digital Computron LED, with its very unconventional and (at the time) somewhat futuristic trapezoidal case with LED display on the side.

    This style is often called a "drivers' watch" because its layout enables a driver to check the time without moving his wrist from the steering wheel; in the case of the Computron, the angled time display — the wearer would press the command button once for the time, and again for the date — also addressed the problem of glare from direct sunlight impairing the visibility on an LED watch.






    Reintroducing the Computron

    Infusing some of the brand’s most iconic and nostalgic timepieces with modern design elements, Bulova’s Archive Series continues to expand with the new digital LED Computron. What was considered at the time an unconventional, futuristic looking trapezoidal case design, the new style honors the versions of the past and displays the time via LED on the front, at an angle.





    Technical Specs
    Case Material:Stainless Steel
    Case Diameter:31
    Case Thickness:13.8
    Functionsay / Date, Dual Time Zone
    Glass:Mineral Crystal
    Case Color:Silver-Tone/Gold/Black




    ABTW HANDS-ON
    Bulova Computron LED Watches

    Reviving its memorable LED watches from the 1970s, the Bulova Computron LED watch collection is hard not to love. Anything “retro” is easy to do and even easier to screw up, but Bulova has knocked it out of the park with what might be my watch of the summer and overall favorite digital watch in quite some time. There are three varieties of the Bulova Computron LED as part of this inaugural run, though I wouldn’t be surprised by new watch colors, as well as new colors for the LED display. Available in a black, gold-tone, or a limited-run stainless steel with blue LED display, the Bulova Archive Computron LED watches start at $295 and go up to $395.

      I've been thinking about a digital watch.

      I was leaning towards this:

      because it is closer to what I had in the 70s.

      But Bulova went and made a blue one. I'm a sucker for blue. Hmm. Need to think more.

            To cater to the era's growing demand for digital timekeepers in the late 1970's and 1980's, Bulova introduced the all-digital Computron LED. At the time, the design was considered futuristic with its trapezoidal case featuring the LED display on the side. Bulova welcomes its newest addition to the Archive Series with the re-imagined Computron. The sleek stainless steel design features a blue LED display, expanded digital functionality and a distinct retro design that is as relevant today as it was in the 1970's. Style #96C139

                Almost pulled the trigger but the more I look at it, the more I'm thinking there's too much silver box and too little screen.
