(PRESS RELEASE) NEW YORK — There are those that go to the limit, and those that Go Beyond. The CITIZEN Promaster line of professional sports watches offers superior functionality to ignite the imagination and inspire new adventures. Expanding upon its collection of field watches for the toughest environments and adventure seekers, CITIZEN introduces its latest Eco-Drive CITIZEN Promaster Altichron model featuring an electronic compass and altitude sensor.

The new Promaster Eco-Drive Altichron watch is powered by light, eliminating the need for regular battery changes. It is equipped with an altitude sensor, making it possible to measure altitude on the highest mountains on Earth with a range up to 10,000 meters (over 32,800 feet) above sea level and 300 meters (nearly 985 feet) below sea level. All of this information is displayed on analog dials rather than a liquid-crystal display, allowing it to display the time, altitude and direction on the dial simultaneously.

In celebration of the launch of the new Altichron timepiece, CITIZEN also welcomes champion climber, UN-named “mountain hero” and climate activist Will Gadd to Team Promaster. Gadd is an expert climber and avid explorer, and his drive for excellence embodies the challenging spirit, passion and adventurous curiosity which defines Promaster. As a brand ambassador, Gadd will be sharing his personal accounts as he travels the globe raising awareness for the environmental protection of mountains, where early indicators of the effects of climate change have already become visible.

“Good relationships make us better together than when we are alone. Our relationships are living embodiments of our values. I am very pleased to start officially working with Citizen and Team Promaster. I share Citizen’s values: Be a good global citizen, add to the world, preserve the environment. Innovate. Be better. And have some fun exploring the wildest places on earth, from the bottom of the ocean to the top of the atmosphere,” said Gadd. “And doing all of that with a watch that is powered by light, is accurate, beautiful, and incredibly durable. The fundamental measurements of my world are time, altitude and direction. The Promaster Altichron gives me all of these in a rock-solid package. This relationship is new, but the values aren’t.”

The new Promaster Altichron offers wearers a dial with large, highly legible hands as well as numbers and bar indices with a bright lume that provides a more solid, three-dimensional look compared to conventional lume. The clean, simple bezel is slim and unobtrusive, and the inner ring is vertically positioned on the outer rim to provide even better legibility in contrast to the dial.


The case is made of Super Titanium treated with Duratect MRK and Duratect DLC with an appealingly rounded shape that produces a stylish yet robust impression. The dial is protected by spherical sapphire glass and the strap is made of highly durable nylon, making this a watch that can survive in the toughest environments.

In addition to the new Altichron, the Promaster Land collection will offer two new Promaster Tough models. Adventure-ready and designed to perform, each timepiece features a 41mm case with a matching triple-link bracelet securing it to the wrist and a safety fold-over clasp, all crafted in Citizen’s proprietary Super Titanium which is 40% lighter and five times stronger than stainless steel. Available in two dial options, black (BN0241-59H) and green (BN0241-59W), each is equipped with high visibility lume hands and markers and date dial display. While the Super Titanium design offers superior strength for high impact wear, light powered Eco-Drive technology keeps each timepiece sustainably powered and helps protect the environment from battery waste. Lightweight, durable and action-ready, the new Promaster Tough timepieces are up for any challenge and designed to help you go further.

This Third-Generation Jeweler Was Ready for Retirement. He Called Wilkerson

Retirement is never easy, especially when it means the end to a business that was founded in 1884. But for Laura and Sam Sipe, it was time to put their own needs first. They decided to close J.C. Sipe Jewelers, one of Indianapolis’ most trusted names in fine jewelry, and call Wilkerson. “Laura and I decided the conditions were right,” says Sam. Wilkerson handled every detail in their going-out-of-business sale, from marketing to manning the sales floor. “The main goal was to sell our existing inventory that’s all paid for and turn that into cash for our retirement,” says Sam. “It’s been very, very productive.” Would they recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers who want to enjoy their golden years? Absolutely! “Call Wilkerson,” says Laura. “They can help you achieve your goals so you’ll be able to move into retirement comfortably.”
