Just saw an ad in a magazine that showed a Reissue of the Computron in gold. Looked cool and went searching the net. Of course one of the online blogs to watch thinks its straight out of the 80's??? Ad said it was issued in'76...Wish I had the dough to get one in gold, but the stainless with blue looks cool too, just not as cool. Looks like the black one will come with a rubber strap...MSRP reported at $395 for gold $295 for the others...Anyone else think these are cool?

It's pretty cool alright. Definitely not a strap monster. It reminds me of a SNL spoof commercial from way back, when they featured an LED watch that needed at least two sets of hands to depress the buttons just to tell the time, Wish I could find the clip.
I'm guessing from some of the spec's I have read technology has kept up too. Looks like 2 years for battery life. I have seen some LED from the era using two button cells and depending on how often you check the time you'd be lucky for a year...Holding off on other purchases for now until I see this one live, not sure why but its got its hook in me...at least for now...
