Citizen Watch America recently resurrected its Accutron brand and starting today, the Spaceview 2020, Accutron DNA, and Legacy collections will be carried by Watches of Switzerland and Mayors.
New York, New York (September 22, 2020) – Watches of Switzerland Group USA is proud to announce itself as an official retail partner of Accutron timepieces. First unveiled in 1960 to universal acclaim, Accutron, known as the world’s first fully electronic watch, has been declared one of the most important innovations in the history of watchmaking. With the same passion for innovation and groundbreaking technology, Accutron now introduces a new historical advancement in timekeeping – the world’s first watches powered by electrostatic energy.
Accutron, which acts as an independent brand within the Citizen Watch America portfolio with exclusive departments dedicated to marketing and sales force initiatives, is committed to upholding an extraordinary legacy of excellence in design, style, and technology as it reenters the watch industry.
“We are proud to announce the official relaunch of Accutron, one of the most innovative products ever created,” said Jeffrey Cohen, President, Citizen Watch America. “These new timepieces, powered by electrostatic energy are the first of their kind and pay tribute to the iconic Spaceview design that gave Accutron the recognition of being an industry trailblazer.”
In addition to the brand’s new electrostatic timepieces, Accutron introduces the Legacy collection, comprised of the revival of some of the most memorable 60s-70s Accutron models, each a cultural and iconic design touchstone. The Accutron Legacy collection features an assortment of twelve watches, each limited to 600 pieces, and all powered by Accutron’s Swiss-made 26-jewel movement to guarantee superb quality and reliability.
“Watches of Switzerland prides itself on providing our clients the best the watch world has to offer, which is why we are excited to announce our retail partnership with Accutron,” states David Hurley, Executive Vice President of Watches of Switzerland. “Much like Watches of Switzerland, Accutron has long been a disruptor in the industry and we look forward to bringing their unique timepieces to our platforms.”
For its return, Accutron looked to high-end independent retailers carrying luxury brands in different parts of the world so they could have exclusivity in their region as well as those retailers who had historically carried the Accutron line. As part of the brand’s exclusive distribution strategy, Watches of Switzerland and Mayors are chosen as the preferred retailers for the Accutron brand and will offer select novelties.
