(PRESS RELEASE) CITIZEN Watch is releasing two new models under its CITIZEN Series 8 collection of mechanical watches that combine practicality and functionality with modern and sporty designs. These new 880 mechanical models are equipped with a GMT function and magnetic resistance.

With their modern, dynamic styling, Series 8 watches suit any scene, from business occasions to casual days off. The brand’s mechanical watches provide a range of practical features, including magnetic resistance to protect them against magnetic fields in everyday life, and a supremely comfortable fit. Two new 880 Mechanical models with a GMT function are now being added to the line-up.

The new 880 Mechanical models are equipped with a GMT function that allows the wearer to see the time in up to three time zones when the bi-directional rotating bezel is used. This new function is perfect for active lifestyles, combined with a modern, dynamic design. The dial design is inspired by the skyline of Tokyo at night with its countless skyscrapers and windows of different sizes, creating a modern twist on traditional check patterns long used in Japan to represent prosperity. The case features both mirror finishes and brushed finishes with multiple patterns. The simple facets and the clean, straight lines combine to produce an eye-catchingly solid design. The bracelet tapers boldly away from the case to create an on-trend, modern look.

The transparent case back reveals the beating heart of the watch. The movement also has magnetic resistance to maintain the accuracy of the watch by reducing the effects of magnetic fields produced by smartphones and tablets in our digital society. High-spec features include average daily accuracy of -10 to +20 seconds and a running time of approx. 50 hours.

Product Features:

  • First CITIZEN Series 8 model with a GMT function
    The GMT hand makes it possible to display the time in two time zones simultaneously while the bidirectional rotating bezel allows the wearer to confirm the time in a third time zone.

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.”
