    Definitely more than that, I'm guessing it might last a year. Luckily the battery should be easy to change. I will just buy a bulk pack.

    I played with this watch today at the local Macys. It has a bit of a heft to it and looks/feels well made. The buttons don't feel like they are going to fall out with use.

    However the shiny stainless steel makes it look cheap and gaudy. I would imagination it is channeling the 1970's bling but is a bit much(with a little light shining on the watch, you could guide airplanes down a runway).

    and in a pinch the top of the case can be used as a potato masher too!

    I just received my Bulova Computron Limited Edition 96C139, and it's a fun, unique, and quirky watch. I wish it had an automatic illumination feature, but it's not a dealbreaker. It was a little more than $200 after cashback and California sales tax, and I feel it's a excellent value for a watch with such a richly retro-futuristic vibe.

    Mleok, in person are the unlit LEDs as visible as in pictures? I've noticed in the press releases and the few reviews of the watch you couldn't see the unlit LED segments in the red displays but they're quite pronounced in the blue displays. The blue LEDs also appear to be very bright too compared to the red LEDs.

    The level of brightness is less pronounced in real life, and while you can see the unlit LED segments, they're less noticeable in real life as well.

    Agreed on the value proposition. I got the same model & the blue LEDs are a nice change from the red ones on my vintage Pulsar P2s. I would love to see light green LEDs as another throwback option as I can remember seeing those on electronic calculators in the early '70s.

    Re: Bulova Computron 2019 In The Flesh.

    I received the black version today as well as a blue/polished which I haven't sized yet. So far so good, I like it, it definitely is more stealthy than the polished blue, build quality is very nice and the rubber strap doesn't disappoint. Now, if I can resist the gold which will be hard to do, my earliest memories of any watch that stood out to me was what I believe to be a gold Bulova digital with red display, that would have been around 77' or 78' so the timeline fits.
