Additional Information

This is a Bulova N6 Computron, and it has the same "dial" and functions of the Computrons I've seen elsewhere, but the case and band are different.  This one has both a larger flattened area around the bezel and lugs that blend into a different band that has end pieces and little "I" shaped center links.   The issue I've run into is that I can't find links for this band and it has been sized very small.  Is anyone know of any other Bulova models that used this band or maybe donor models of this watch?  Thanks!

Line Book BAWD0205 pg 55 shows this one as Quartz Digital and only gives a model number. Finding that link will be a challenge, good luck.

Thanks so much!  Glad to see that setup so I know that's the proper original band!  Now to find links!!  Is that catalog available on this site?  What a great resource!!!  Thanks again!!

Nice watch! thanks for sharing. Line Book Number (instead of name) for watch is

1976 Quartz Digital (81706-4W)

Finding band links may be challenging. My suggestion would be to haunt ebay and look for a non-functioning donor watch.

I can't believe how lucky I got!   I found a junk watch lot on eBay with one in it!  The face of the watch looks a mess, but the band looks ok and has many more links!   Now I'm going to be left with several parts watches to use or resell, but, crossing fingers, this watch will be all set to be worn again with the proper band!!
