Watches Reinvented for 2019

What’s old is new again with these three luxury timepieces re-imagined and re-released for 2019.

Bulova Computron 1976 Re-Edition

In the 1970s, Bulova first released the Computron, which, at the time, was unconventional and futuristic. It featured a trapezoidal case, an LED display on the side and was referred to as a driver’s watch because the wearer could check the time while driving without moving his wrist. The re-edition of the Computron, unveiled at Baselworld 2019, puts a modern spin on the classic displaying the time on the front at an angle. Part of the brand’s Archive series, the Bulova Computron is offered in gold with a red LED display, black silicone with a red LED display and stainless steel with a blue LED display.

Scott is very proud of the way Feldmar customers are put first: “We regularly go out of our way to meet the needs of our clients. A client once purchased a rather significant watch as a birthday gift for his brother who lived in New York. Our client asked how we were going to deliver the gift and we responded with the typical answer, we would ship it by FedEx. After we answered his question, we could tell that he wanted a more personalized experience for the delivery and offered to have it hand-delivered by one of our associates. He lit up at the thought, and so off went one of our associates to New York City for the day to hand-deliver the gift.”
