ITASCA, Ill. – On Friday, Sept. 30, the American Watchmakers-Clockmakers Institute will host an evening of food and horological conversation to raise money for its Education, Library & Museum Trust (ELM Trust).

Watchmakers, clockmakers, collectors and members of the horological industry will join special guest Michael Kobold at the Eaglewood Resort & Spa in Itasca, a northwest Chicago suburb.

Tickets are $95 and can be purchased at www.awci.com/2016convention. Tickets are limited to the first 150 people.

“There just are not enough watchmakers in the United States right now. If you have ever struggled to find a qualified watchmaker to service your fine timepiece, then you understand the importance of supporting horological education in the United States,” said AWCI Executive Director Jordan Ficklin. “The need for highly skilled clockmakers is even greater.”

“Before you know it, the evening is over and you’ve made new friends who share your passion for watches and clocks,” said Aaron Recksiek of Mt. Olympus Clocks in Salt Lake City. “And you are supporting a good cause.”

Each year the ELM Trust holds its annual fundraising dinner in conjunction with the Annual Convention & Educational Symposium of the American Watchmakers-Clockmakers Institute. Visit www.awci.com/symposium for convention details. For more information about AWCI, the ELM Trust, or to volunteer or donate, visit www.awci.com/ELMTrust or call 866-367-2924.

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
