Vintage Rare 1976 Bulova COMPUTRON N7 Red LED Digital Gold Tone Cell 228 Watch

Regular price $0.00

Out of stock

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. 

This is a very rare version of this watch, since most Cell 228 are N6 this is the first I have seen with N7. This is a great looking watch for it age, looks great.



Please look at all the pictures, as they are part of the description. The watch is working with new battery. This is a highly collectible watch. Very few left with this rare movement. Sure, to increase in value overtime, and a great addition to your collection. The condition of the watch is the same as it appears in the photos.    Contact me if you have any questions first.
