Grammy Award Winners to Receive Bulova Watch




(PRESS RELEASE) NEW YORK  – Bulova and the Recording Academy  celebrate the upcoming 60th Anniversary of the Grammy Awards with the unveiling of a limited edition timepiece. The timepiece will be gifted to each 60th Grammy Award winner.

The Recording Academy will host the 60th Grammy Awards in New York City, Bulova’s home, where the duo will hold an exclusive event during Grammy weekend. Titled “Tune of Time,” the intimate afternoon will feature a special performance by music legend and three-time Grammy Award winner Nile Rodgers and his band, CHIC. As part of the event, Nile will be interviewed by Scott Goldman, executive director of the Grammy Museum, about his career, music and recent partnership with Bulova, including a special project and upcoming spring advertising campaign.

The limited edition timepiece, from the brand’s Precisionist collection, features a stainless steel case with a multilayer gold-tone Grammium — a custom alloy developed by John Billings, the craftsman who creates, by hand, the lustrous gold gramophone statue that is presented to Grammy recipients —  medallion dial showcasing the New York skyline and 60th anniversary design detail. The watch is complete with an anti-reflective sapphire glass, screw-back case with Grammy logo and a black rubber and croco-embossed grey leather strap.

“This year is incredibly momentous for not only the Recording Academy but also Bulova as we celebrate our musical partnership in our hometown,” said Jeffrey Cohen, president of Bulova. “We look forward to a great event where we can highlight the new limited edition timepiece, but also commemorate the 60th Anniversary of the Grammy Awards with a special partnership announcement with Nile Rodgers.”

“We’re thrilled to continue this extraordinary partnership with Bulova, and to commemorate our milestone anniversary with a special limited edition timepiece that will be presented to all 60th Grammy winners,” said Evan Greene, chief marketing officer at the Recording Academy. “We look forward to kicking-off this year’s efforts with an exclusive performance by iconic three-time Grammy winner Nile Rodgers during one of our coveted, highly anticipated Grammy Week events.”

The new Limited Edition 60th  Anniversary Grammy timepiece will be exclusively available for purchase at Macy’s Herald Square and The watch retails for $1,150. Bulova’s Tune of Time event will take place on Saturday, Jan. 27.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Gone Fishin’ (Thanks to Wilkerson)

Whether you want to go fishing — or enjoy some of the other good things life has to offer — you can take a cue from Jim Adair and choose Wilkerson to run your retirement sale. After 38 years in business, Adair decided it was time to enjoy some free time. His Missoula, Montana store, Adair Jewelers, will stay in business but without him at the helm. It was the perfect opportunity to call in the experts in retirement sales. Adair says he spoke to a lot of people who have done retirement sales to help him make his decision and he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson seemed to have the best set up, the best organization, the most current marketing of any of them,” he says. “If you want to run a successful sale, you have too much money on the line to be screwing around with trying to do it yourself.”
