New Bulova computron 2019

Really like these!
Looks great! At last a respected brand goes retro,i wish Hamilton would do the same with their original QED models.No reliability worries and the original classic case design.Needs a sapphire crystal (if its not already part of spec).
Stainless version looks great with the blue crystal and $100 cheaper than the gold plate make me want one at Christmas.Excellent signed crystal with the quartz logo .Looks decent quality.
Im not too fussed with the "new led"numerals being different from the original.
Far prefer this to the vintage stuff now,sorry to the purists!
Damm ,i quite like the gold one too. :mega:

I’m totally agree with you, specialy when you think about the price about the original Computron (over 500$) and the low reliability.

Cant wait for these to come out! Has to be both gold and stainless for me.Quoted at £250 and £199 for UK. Just need to wait for the usual "sale" discounts as well. No more fragile vintage worries. Absolutley beautiful .Well done Bulova.I feel like 12 years old again ,waiting on the "new space age watch"being released.
Only one requisite ...case must be the same size as the original.
If the display is close to the Majestik led from a few years back,i remember it being very sharp bright and easy to read in all lighting conditions.The thicker segments proving far easier to read,for me at any rate.I prefer this to the old format.
One thing,forget the photos as they dont show the display as good as it actually is.The digits are evenly light and razor sharp.(if its similar to the majestik watch)

Already appearing on ebay (usa) and on the wrist of their new owners,great new video advertisement as well......showing the original with its owner in a early 70s mustang at the traffic lights along side the new version on the wrist of its owner pulling up on a new scooter at the same lights.

The computron is available with beautiful collectors limited edition archive computron packaging from Italian registered Bulova dealers.
Much more in keeping with this beautiful watch and much better than the standard black Bulova boxes.
I don't think any other country has this..... unless someone knows differently.Absolutely worth sourcing.

Just received the gold version and waiting on the stainless.
Beautiful watch well made and finished.Made complete with the collectors edition display packaging.Finally a genuine led watch from a well known brand.
Brings back memories of the 70s Christmases ....longing for an led watch.
Well done Bulova.

IMO i much prefer this to the usual basic black watch box that does nothing for aesthetics.This watch needs the vintage packaging to complete its classic 70s look.
In terms of a collectors perspective,and the fact no other dealers world wide have them,then its worth it.
The choice is all yours.....
