Accutron Introduces New Spaceview Evolution Timepieces Powered by Electrostatic Energy

(PRESS RELEASE) NEW YORK — Accutron builds on the success of the brand’s groundbreaking electrostatic movement with the introduction of a new Spaceview Evolution timepiece collection. The Accutron Manufacture movement powered by electrostatic energy is a historical advancement in timekeeping and the first of its kind.

The new Spaceview Evolution models are a true design evolution of the original Accutron Spaceview 2020. While utilizing the same iconic and distinctive case of the Spaceview 2020, the new Spaceview Evolution features an updated orientation of the movement by 30 degrees to give the watches an entirely new look – the turbines are shifted, and the crown is positioned at two o’clock. New bridgework detail is also incorporated with fine knurled finishing along with blue and black contrast screws for a pop of color.

Introducing a new generation of luxury timepieces, two styles of the Spaceview Evolution are available. Both watches feature a 43.5mm polished stainless-steel case with domed double box sapphire crystal and water resistance to 50m. The first style boasts a smoke grey open-work dial with metal outer ring, silver-tone hour and minute hands with Super-LumiNova center and silver-tone second hand, finished on a matte black genuine American alligator strap. The second style features a smoke grey and silver-tone open-work dial with metal outer ring, metallic blue hour and minute hands with Super-LumiNova center and silver-tone second hand, finished on a shiny blue genuine American alligator strap. Each timepiece is priced at $3,950.

The new Spaceview Evolution is powered by Accutron’s proprietary movement powered by electrostatic energy, created by twin turbines that rotate as a result of human motion at incredible speeds between two electrodes affixed to the movement. The energy, stored in an accumulator, powers two motors; a world’s first electrostatic motor fueling the fluid second hand and a step motor powering the hour and minute hands. Both motors are synchronized through integrated circuits to provide accuracy to +/- 5 seconds a month.

“We are proud to expand the Accutron Spaceview assortment powered by electrostatic energy, a world’s first,” says Jeffrey Cohen, president of Citizen Watch America. “The new Spaceview Evolution is a true design progression of the Spaceview 2020 that marked the return of Accutron’s timekeeping legacy.”

This Third-Generation Jeweler Was Ready for Retirement. He Called Wilkerson

Retirement is never easy, especially when it means the end to a business that was founded in 1884. But for Laura and Sam Sipe, it was time to put their own needs first. They decided to close J.C. Sipe Jewelers, one of Indianapolis’ most trusted names in fine jewelry, and call Wilkerson. “Laura and I decided the conditions were right,” says Sam. Wilkerson handled every detail in their going-out-of-business sale, from marketing to manning the sales floor. “The main goal was to sell our existing inventory that’s all paid for and turn that into cash for our retirement,” says Sam. “It’s been very, very productive.” Would they recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers who want to enjoy their golden years? Absolutely! “Call Wilkerson,” says Laura. “They can help you achieve your goals so you’ll be able to move into retirement comfortably.”
