Compuchron Hughes

The best of the non-luxury brands


This Compuchron LED watch is a nice, sturdy, stainless steel gem with an attractive TV shaped case and screen. It's a mid sized watch that is relatively light and quite thin and comfortable to wear. These late model CompuChrons use a thin 25mm Hughes LED module with very bright, readable digits.

As a relatively late model LED watch, this watch has a sturdy and dependable module with very bright, legible digits. CompuChron watches were made in Japan and were generally of high build quality. They are one of the best of the non-luxury brands (Pulsar, Hamilton, Omega).

This is a five function watch like most others of its vintage and has similar functionality. Push the button once to see the time, a second time to see the date, and a third time to see the seconds. You can also push once and hold the button to see seconds. One interesting quirk about this watch is that if you push the button three times, it blinks the seconds continuously until the button is pressed again. Most watches only display as long as the button is held down.


Case: Very good.
This Compuchron is in very good condition. The only place where a few light marks and scratches are visible are along the highly polished sides and the left and right bevels on the bezel. The rest of the watch is a nice even brushed texture that doesn't show any marks.

Face / Hands: Excellent.
All LED digits and segments are complete and bright.

Crystal: Very good.
The crystal has a few very light marks that are visible if you catch the light just right. The CompuChron logo is in perfect condition.

Band / Bracelet: Excellent.
The original bracelet is in excellent condition with only a few light scratches. It is complete and will fit a huge 8.5" wrist, which is surprising considering that this is a mid-sized watch.

Function / Accuracy: Excellent.
All functions work perfectly. Digital quartz accuracy.
