(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.

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
