Bulova Computron Ref: 229 "wedge" Drivers LED c. 1970s



Forward thinking design is what this watch was all about.  The futuristic styling proved to not only be great looking, but functional as the "wedge" shape allowed for a front view of the LED which was both helpful in bright light and in driving.  This particular example was the first edition 2 button model from 1976 and it's in the equally cool original plastic "pod" box.  Very comfortable watch that wears larger then the dimensions would indicate.
