Compuchron Sanyo

An LED watch with a polished faceted case - like a disco ball on your wrist!


This nice quality made Compuchron features a striking faceted case. The polished bevelled sides really reflect the light (almost like a disco ball on your wrist!). The display used in this model is similar to that used in some late model Pulsars.

Sanyo built many parts used in the Pulsar P4 modules and built the modules used in some late model Pulsar such as the rare and highly coveted Greenie. If you compare the shape and the slant of the digits in this Compuchron with the digits in the Pulsar Greenie, you can see that it's the essentially same display in different colors.

This watch has two setting buttons on the right side where one button advances the hours and month and the other button advances the minutes and date - just like the Pulsar Time Computer modules.

One other unique thing about this watch is that the module has been designed to be as thin as possible. If you look closely through the red crystal, you can see that below the display are two dark round circles - the battery compartments. The designers of this module chose to place the the display and circuitboard are placed alongside the batteries instead of stacking them on top of one another as they are in most other modules. This allows the module to be several millimeters thinner than other LED modules.

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).
