(Press Release)
Citizen has announced that it will participate in the Milano Salone (Milan Design Week) 2016, one of the world’s largest design festivals.

In an effort to explore the relationship between light and time through the evolution of Eco-Drive technology, Citizen exhibited at Milan Design Week in 2014 for the first time. That installation was a collaboration of Citizen’s in-house design team and Tsuyoshi Tane, a member of Paris architectural design firm DGT. It was honored with a 2014 Milano Design Award and also earned recognition at the London International Awards 2015. An exhibition to show the award-winning installation in Japan was held in 2014 at the Spiral Building in Aoyama, Tokyo. The event attracted more than 70,000 visitors. This year, Citizen will show the installation again in Milano under the same design collaboration as before.

The company in 1976 developed the world’s first light-powered analog watch. Later known as Eco-Drive, this proprietary Citizen technology allows a watch to keep telling the correct time by using virtually any light source to generate its own power, thereby eliminating the need to replace batteries. Watches using this technology are now available in more than 100 countries around the world.

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
