The BULOVA Computron has a retro aesthetic brimming with the futuristic promise of the digital age! Having one is akin to wearing a gold Delorean on your wrist!

... commonly referred to as the "Sideview", "Wedge" or the "Trapezoid"  but most people just call it the "Drivers" watch. It's difficult to say if it really was designed for a driver who could view the time directly from the angled display without removing the wrist from the driving wheel... a minor advantage as the driver still had to use his other wrist to push the command button. The sun was a real enemy in the practical use of LED watches so in my opinion the sideview display was introduced to improve visibility as the display was shaded from direct sunlight.
