Join Accutron for a journey into the life of a living legend that has changed the face of music and to explore his thoughts on today’s music industry including music education.

The Accutron Show is the first full-fledged podcast by a watch brand and is a series of approximately 40-minute conversations hosted by Entertainment Reporter Bill McCuddy (Fox News), Journalist David Graver (Cool Hunting, New York Times, Vogue), and Editor Scott Alexander (GQ, Playboy) about Americana culture and its evolution and expressions through time.

To celebrate Accutron’s 62nd birthday, a true music icon joins the conversation, the one and only Nile Rodgers. Rodgers is a Grammy-winning composer, producer, arranger and guitarist who’s been inducted into both the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame. He is the co-founder of CHIC and the Chairman of the Songwriters Hall of Fame, Rodgers pioneered a musical language that generated chart-topping hits like “Le Freak,” (the biggest selling single in the history of Atlantic Records) and sparked the advent of hip-hop with “Good Times.”

“I don’t remember going to the same school for more than a few weeks. But all schools had standardized music education, they all had school orchestras and each school assigned to me a different instrument I had to learn to play. By the time I grew up I became a self-contained band, doing all my orchestration, writing every part of every instrument myself.”

The Accutron Show Podcast, available to listen on Apple Music, Spotify, Stitcher and other major streaming platforms including YouTube.

Embodying its tagline, “It’s Not A Timepiece. It’s A Conversation Piece.” Accutron reignites another chapter of conversation with a third season of The Accutron Show podcast. Reaching #42 on Apple Podcasts in the” Society & Culture” category in the U.S., the podcast continues its exploration into American consumer culture with an outstanding line-up of influential guests.

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
