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.

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!”
