Great early L.E.D. model. These were initially called Accuquartz, but I believe later they became part of the Computron series.

This one is the Accuquartz model 92600

Hi Clippie, as you've noted, this watch was known by several nicknames. We catalog and tag watches only by the name Bulova gave them in their literature of the day. In this case we'll name your wonderful  little keepsake Accuquartz 92600-6Y. Congrats on a really cool heirloom!
