Accutron Celebrates Iconic Legacy Designs

(PRESS RELEASE) NEW YORK — Accutron’s latest Legacy Collection celebrates some of the most noteworthy designs from the brand’s past. Combining the timeless appeal of iconic design with the technical excellence of Swiss watchmaking, the Legacy Collection is reimagined for today’s wearer. Comprised of the revival of some of the most memorable 60’s and 70’s styles, Accutron is to bring back the original 412 watch from 1969.

Inspired by the design-centric, fashion-forward attitudes of that time, the 412 watch is directly influenced by the Ivy League style of dress that began to emerge in the late 50’s through the 60’s. Later known as “preppy fashion,” this movement served as an important need for the brand to design the perfect accessory to accompany this style.

A historically significant timepiece for the brand, as it is the original case design for Accutron’s iconic Spaceview, the 412 is a tried-and-true classic featuring a 34mm gold-tone stainless steel round case with the same unique bull horn lugs and crown placement at 4 o’clock. The 3-hand silver white dial boasts gold-tone applied and faceted hour markers and a domed sapphire crystal with AR coating making for a refined and elegant look. Water resistant to 30M, the 412 is powered by Accutron’s Swiss Made 26-jewel movement to guarantee quality and reliability and is offered on a black croco-embossed leather strap with double-press deployant closure. The 412 watch retails for $1,450 and like all other models in the Legacy Collection, is limited to 600 pieces.

“Accutron is well known for taking inspiration from particular cultural moments,” said Jeffrey Cohen, president of Citizen Watch America. “The 412 is a perfect example of the influence those times had on the brand’s design approach.”

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
