    I don't own it (YET!!!!) . Those two watches are on my list. A NOS w/ box sold on ebay for the computron for ~160 but I was too busy working and I missed it.

    Hmmm, I wonder if Jean d'Eve got the idea for their 'Sectora' from the top one.

    This Computron looks like it wants to kill you '-_- (and the whole human race).

    The fabled Benrus Dial-O-Rama with the star dial. May never find one... the pin stripe dial is much more common

    They've become very expensive, but these "protractors" are quite cool (not my watch):

    Surely it is a Protractor, it’s definitely a full half circle 180 deg’s a Sextant would only be 60 deg’s and have all the double reflecting mirrors on it.


    What I see on that watch is a Protractor, straight edge and Scribe. All Draughtsmens tools.
