(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 Testimonials

Gone Fishin’ (Thanks to Wilkerson)

Whether you want to go fishing — or enjoy some of the other good things life has to offer — you can take a cue from Jim Adair and choose Wilkerson to run your retirement sale. After 38 years in business, Adair decided it was time to enjoy some free time. His Missoula, Montana store, Adair Jewelers, will stay in business but without him at the helm. It was the perfect opportunity to call in the experts in retirement sales. Adair says he spoke to a lot of people who have done retirement sales to help him make his decision and he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson seemed to have the best set up, the best organization, the most current marketing of any of them,” he says. “If you want to run a successful sale, you have too much money on the line to be screwing around with trying to do it yourself.”
