    Bulova Computron N7 229 “Driver’s” digital

    Had my eye out for a long time for an original 70s Computron, egged even more by the new reissue!

    Had a great antique sale find of one in perfect working condition, but wondering if anyone has a legit manual for this module, the 229?

    It’s a single-button model that is pretty straight-forward to set — hit the button a few times and it enters timekeeping mode. The only thing I can’t figure out is the month — it cycle 1-12 but there are 5 “stages” — in other words, it’ll go 1-12 with each push and then the number to the right will increase with each cycle of 12 until it hits 5 and then back to 1 — what does this mean?

    Thanks — I’ve been finding a lot of stuff on the earlier (N6) module with two buttons but nothing official on this single-button version from Bulova.

    could the stages relate to leap years?
