(Press Release)
Bulova unveils its fall 2016 advertising campaign, “A History of Firsts,” drawing inspiration from its own history of “firsts”.

Reinterpreted to reflect life’s special “firsts”, Bulova’s new ad campaign takes a contemporary approach to memorable first moments using a cast of real relationships to celebrate diversity and humanity. The black-and-white imagery in the campaign was captured by photographer Sean Thomas.

“This campaign connects in wonderful emotional stories the history, the beauty and the innovative thinking of Bulova,” said Robert Christiano, the company’s executive vice president for global marketing. “We are excited to see how it will resonate with the consumers of the brand across all generations and ethnicities.”

Thomas stated: “Bulova is an iconic American watch brand that’s been around for an impressively long time therefore we agreed that the photographs should reflect this by being timeless and genuine. To achieve that we felt it was absolutely necessary to cast real families, friends and lovers so I could then capture and create situations where intimate and perfect moments between loved ones could be had.”

Among Bulova’s “firsts” are the world’s first wristwatch collection, first clock radio and first fully electronic watch. In addition, the brand broadcasted the first television and radio commercials as well as accompanied NASA on 46 missions with the brand’s Accutron tuning fork technology. Recently Bulova launched CURV, the world’s first curved chronograph movement.

News of Bulova’s fall 2016 advertising campaign comes at the same time as the brand’s recent partnership with the GRAMMYs, Latin GRAMMYs and The Grammy Museum.

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
