    I don't have info on it but what I can say is that Accutron/Bulova are re-releasing the Computron - Check it out here:https://www.watchtime.com/featured/b...selworld-2019/

    Ok, now that is a good homage! Original design with some added features. Definitely a cool watch.

    No, it's made by Bulova, so that would make it as a re-issue. A homage is made by a totally different company, and pays tribute to the original.

    In all seriousness, for the geek in me blue LEDs don't do it like red. These watches had RED LEDs...

    For me, the original computron would be the one (not that either the old or the new really interest me).

    But the watch I originally posted about might be interesting. If the kinetic tech utilizes those little rotors, for instance. It's a nod to a bit of Bulova history, but in a modern watch I could wear as a daily beater. I'm just hoping there is a reason for the movement reveal, and that it's not stupidly large.

    Right... finally some info... seems this is being developed in anticipation of Accutron's 60th anniversary.

    The movement is powered by static. So, pretty cool in my mind.

    Well, that makes it a little more interesting for me. At first the finish and the what looks like unnecessary complications made me think of those cheap chrono looking watches that the sub dials don't even work. But if it's made by Bulova I'll be interested to see what they've done. Now powered by static? They have some explaining to do...

    Okay.... if this Computron re-fit was released back in 2015, has anyone actually seen one in the wild ?? And has there been any other releases under Bulova's "Archive" series ?

    I don't follow these new Citizen owned Bulova models much. It appears that the Lunar Pilot(Dave Scott Moon watch) was released in 2015 which started the so called Archive series. Those Computrons look to release Fall 2019 but its known that Bulova has had some moving target release dates in the past. I guess people that like them will buy them. People that aren't interested won't.

    Update: According to this article, those Re-issue LEDs are to be released Fall 2019. baselworld-2019-first-look-at-the-incredibly-cool-incredibly-retro-bulova-computron/
