Wilkerson Testimonials

Cleaning House for a New Generation

At Komara Jewelers in Canfield, Ohio, Wilkerson handled all the aspects of its retirement sale just as owner Bob Komara’s children took over day-to-day operations of the business. They’d used other companies before, says Brianna Komara-Pridon, but they didn’t compare. “If we had used Wilkerson then, it would have been so much better.”

The First iPhone with a Tourbillon in the World Was Created

There will only be 99 copies.

(PRESS RELEASE) Luxury brand of smartphones Caviar introduced new iPhone XS in the collection “Grand Complications”. The model is “complicated” not only with a watch mechanism, but also with the main value and achievement of the watch world – a tourbillon.

Keeping finding an inspiration in the traditions of watch complications, Caviar went further than the idea to combine a mechanic watch with a smartphone and developed a unique model, where the modern iPhone XS is complemented with a tourbillon – a mechanism providing the perfectly accurate time reckoning thanks to the leveling of the gravity impact on the watch work.

Idea

The Grand Complications Collections is the most technically complicated and unusual Caviar collection for today, as its idea is the “complication” of iPhone XS with the mechanisms and elements that give the brand new functionality to the device. This unusual alliance demonstrates a meeting of innovations and traditions, classics and technologies and intensifies both ideas mutually – both the modern achievements and the heritage of the past.
Tourbillon is indeed a special height in the watch world – a tiny mechanism, called “vortex” in French, with its movement compensates the gravity error in the accuracy of the clock rate and ensures the perfect preciseness of the time reckoning.

Design

The design Caviar Grand Complications Tourbillon is inspired by the synthesis of the astronomy, physics and philosophy and presents stylistically rethought images of planets with their orbits. To embody the design, the composite stone of black and white color, as well as gold covering were used; the spectacular geometry transforms the body’s space and gives unique inner logic to it.
In the center a clock face is located; the hour marks are applied in form of Roman numerals, and some of them come out of the face’s border and surrealistically “fly” around becoming a part of the orbit of the depicted planed. In the “six o’clock” position the tourbillon opened to eyes is placed.

Watch and Tourbillon

The smartphone’s body is complemented with a mechanic watch with a manual winding (19 stones, 28 880 vph) with the power reserve of 30 hours.
In the “six o’clock” position the one-minute tourbillon (making 1 rotation about itself in 1 min)
The mechanisms are developed according a special order for Caviar by a well-known European manufacturer whose name has not yet been disclosed.

Model Caviar Grand Complications Tourbillon released in limited edition, will be released only 99 copies. The cost starts from $8 350.

Also, it should be noted in the Swiss watch industry the average price for a model with tourbillons is a figure of 15,000 francs. Therefore, the price set by Caviar is unique to this kind of product. The brand plans to present its development at the exhibition in Basel.

In introducing this year’s results, JA New York Group Show Director Drew Lawsky noted, “42 years ago, the visionary Mort Abelson introduced the New Designer Gallery to the JA Shows. By bringing these artists to commercial trade shows, Mort significantly altered the entire fabric of our industry. Many of the designers who exhibited in those first New Designer Galleries went on to become world-renowned brands, and we’re confident that this tradition will continue with this current generation of artists.”

Liz Kantner, who curates the New Designer Gallery section of the show, introduced designer Theresa Kaz, the presenter of this year’s award.

“Theresa Kaz first debuted her collection in the New Designer Gallery one year ago,” Kantner said. “She’s presenting the Mort Abelson award because she is an incredible example of what this platform can do for emerging designers. In the past 12 months, Theresa has grown her business and opened new retail accounts. It all started here and we are thrilled to have her as an advocate and shining example of what Mort and Cindy Edelstein hoped for the New Designer Gallery.”
