(PRESS RELEASE) CINCINNATI, OH — The American Watchmakers-Clockmakers Institute (AWCI) announces that the American Timepiece Fair and Time-Con will take place at The Summit Hotel in Cincinnati on October 8th – 10th, 2020. Our events, originally scheduled for March were postponed following the recommendations of the State of Ohio due to the coronavirus COVID-19. We have already confirmed that nearly every presenter will be able to participate this fall and we will be updating our web site as more information is available at www.awci.com/timecon.

The American Timepiece Fair showcasing watches, clocks, and the supporting industry is free and open to the public. This fair is unlike any other watch show because it features a curated selection of both new and used timepieces, watchmakers, clockmakers, and tool suppliers. Bring in your family heirloom and ask questions of our professionals who will be on hand buying, selling and offering Roadshow style appraisals.

For those looking for a more in-depth horological experience Time-Con 2020 is three days of lectures, networking, and socializing running from October 8th through the 10th at the Summit Hotel. Some of this year’s lectures include engine turning, ship’s bell clocks, complicated restorations, history of timekeeping, Herschede tubular bell clocks, and much more. Registration for Time-Con is $599 ($499 before September 1st).

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
