Citizen Reintroduces the Promaster Navihawk and Partners with Military Veterans’ Charitable Organization Jump For Valor

(PRESS RELEASE) NEW YORK — To commemorate Veterans Day, Citizen announces its newest timepieces, the Promaster Navihawk series that capture the adventurous spirit of air travel and are inspired by a pilot’s in-flight experience. Citizen has partnered with the boundary-pushing filmmakers at 60 Second Docs to share stories of extraordinary people, like Chris Derbak, a retired Air Force and U.S. Coast Guard veteran. Derbak founded Jump For Valor in 2019 to help military veterans return home and transition back to civilian life. Jump For Valor is a charitable non-profit organization formed for the purpose of bettering lives of veterans through participation in skydiving and aerial sports.

The newly re-launched Promaster Navihawk men’s watch is inspired by a pilot’s visual experience in the cockpit. It synchronizes to atomic time for superior accuracy and allows for time adjustments in 26 time zones. Other features include a chronograph, perpetual calendar as well as a power reserve indicator. The gradient blue dial – which features silver-tone hands and red accented luminous hands and markers – is packed with features, from the city time zone display to a sliding scale for measurement, to a rotating navigational bezel with a compass. Additionally, the entire watch is sustainably powered by any light with the proprietary Citizen Eco-Drive technology. Not only available in stainless steel with a blue gradient dial ($650.00) but additionally in a grey ion-plated stainless steel with a green gradient dial accented with bold yellow highlights ($695.00).\

Also, to expand this collection even further, a Limited Edition Promaster Navihawk was released. Powered by Eco-Drive, the timepiece boasts an array of purposeful specifications that are key to a watch of this caliber. It is available in bold black ion-plated stainless-steel with a cobalt blue gradient dial and bright orange accents. This watch included not only synchronized Atomic Technology, keeping accurate time in 26 time zones, but also a chronograph, perpetual calendar, 12/24-hour time, power reserve indicator and day/date. At a retail price of $850.00, this watch is limited to 1,500 pieces worldwide and comes with special packaging that features a working Citizen clock that matches the timepiece.

As part of the Purposeful Power campaign, Citizen will be supporting Jump For Valor through a donation of watches for their upcoming Veterans Day event, funding tandem jumps and one veteran to become certified to skydive enabling them to further the Jump For Valor mission. In addition, a Promaster Air timepiece will be gifted to each of the Veteran recipients of the donated tandems and licensed skydiver trainee.

When There’s No Succession Plan, Call Wilkerson

Bob Wesley, owner of Robert C. Wesley Jewelers in Scottsdale, Ariz., was a third-generation jeweler. When it was time to enjoy life on the other side of the counter, he weighed his options. His lease was nearing renewal time and with no succession plan, he decided it was time to call Wilkerson. There was plenty of inventory to sell and at first, says Wesley, he thought he might try to manage a sale himself. But he’s glad he didn’t. “There’s no way I could have done this as well as Wilkerson,” he says. Wilkerson took responsibility for the entire event, with every detail — from advertising to accounting — done, dusted and managed by the Wilkerson team. “It’s the complete package,” he says of the Wilkerson method of helping jewelers to easily go on to the next phase of their lives. “There’s no way any retailer can duplicate what they’ve done.”
