What do you think? This watch or the Bulova Computron?

I like! Hamilton’s website is a little confusing though, main shots of the watch show it with a dot display, others show a line display :scratch:

Neat!!

They did it right. I'm glad they didn't do a cheap re-issue like Bulova did with the Computron. The P2 deserves a proper remembrance. Pretty neat display technology - kind of an update on the hybrid LCD/LED displays used in the weird Seiko LeVent watches from the 90s.

I wonder if the buttons have the soft magnetic reed switch feel of a real P2?

Nice. One thing that does slightly put me off, after looking over promo pics, I noticed the dots on the display look like they are formed by shining a solid line through a perforated sheet.

Hopefully you can see on in a physical store before buying it there or ordering online.

Ive both steel and gold versions of the Bulova and think they are excellent quality inc the display and a much more affordable price,i think the hamilton is great and hope prices soften , £900 i way to much, although the steel version is prob the best and cheapest one thankfully.
However the HGWC driver remains the only digital that can truly declare the original led dot display,the Hamilton is not quite the same ,if that matters.
Interestingly this is a lcd/oled display and back lit lcds have always been hammered on this forum :scratch:

After more time spent drooling over pics and info, I don't think the display is as crude as I first thought, not just shining red light through a perforated sheet. It seems more like, and I'm only guessing at this time, a perminant dull lcd will be visible at all times. Then when the button is pressed, it lights up a separate set of led lights that light up bright.
