“ACCUTRON BECOMES A BRAND IN ITS OWN RIGHT”

Synchronize both motors via IC to provide an accuracy of +/- 5 seconds per month.Replica watches: For the 60th anniversary of the first fully electronic watch in history, Accutron hasn’t just released a commemorative limited series; it has been relaunched as a brand in its own right, distinct from Bulova. What is the strategy behind this more exclusive positioning?

In 1960, a model that would change the history of watchmaking was presented in New York: the Accutron, considered the world’s first fully electronic watch. With its open dial and futuristic design, it marked the industry’s entry into the electronic age. In the decades that followed, electronic replica watches would replace, in volume if not value, the traditional mechanical watch.

For the 60th anniversary of this event, the Citizen Group (which in 2008 bought the Bulova brand that introduced the Accutron) isn’t content with just releasing a commemorative edition.

A new Accutron brand has been launched, separate from the mass market Bulova, in a different niche, with more exclusive distribution, higher price, and more limited production.

The timing of the revival is revealing, as watchmaking’s future seems more tied than ever to a reassessment of its immense heritage. However, to mark the occasion in a way that avoids falling into pure vintage nostalgia, a caliber considered (almost) as innovative as the original Accutron has been developed, this time using electrostatic power – a first.fake watches cheap

Echoing both Space Age (Accutron team working closely with NASA) and “Americana,” a dedicated podcast provides updates on the fetish themes of an era that have captured the imagination of a new generation. A book titled “Accutron: From The Space Age to the Digital Age” published by Assouline and written by Jack Forster, editor-in-chief of Hodinkee, carefully traces the epic history of the model with the tuning fork logo. Everything in this renaissance seems to point to a delicate balance between heritage and innovation.

“Beyond being a watch, the Accutron brand has been an integral part of American culture since the 1960s,” said Jeffrey Cohen, president of Citizen Watch America, who is leading this ambitious project. He took us behind the scenes of the Accutron relaunch.

Watch: Bulova has revived the famous 1960 Accutron several times in the past. What is really different this time?

Jeffrey Cohen: It’s a completely different logic, for two main reasons. On the one hand, we are launching permanent collections around the Legacy, DNA and Spaceview models, whereas a previous model like the Accutron II Alpha Watch in 2014 was a limited edition. And above all, Accutron replica watches is becoming, or rather becoming again, a brand in its own right, reviving the spirit of its origins. In fact, through our archives, we realized that there were multiple identities over time: sometimes it was the Bulova Accutron, other times Accutron mentioned itself. We believe that today it has earned the right to be a brand in its own right, distinct from Bulova.

What convinced you to opt for this distinct branding strategy?

First, a growing enthusiasm from the watchmaking community itself: Accutron has a strong fan base. It is also this entire era, that of Mad Men (the model is the subject of an episode of a series – Ed.) that fascinates today’s youth. In fact, when we introduced new models to our partners and retailers, their children were often the most enthusiastic. Sometimes the little ones had been given an Accutron by their grandparents, and it’s a bit like the model skipped a generation and now has a bright future again. In fact, we’ve been getting requests for a real Accutron relaunch for years. At last the time has come!replica watches cheap

También ha involucrado a los propios coleccionistas y entusiastas de Accutron en este renacimiento.

Llamamos a un panel de entusiastas para definir el ADN más preciso para esta primera serie de nuevos productos. Vinieron a Nueva York y trabajamos en estrecha colaboración para revisar los modelos Accutron más icónicos y los mejores estilos para los nuevos diseños. Esto nos dio el impulso para el proyecto y nos ayudó a asegurarnos de que las opciones estuvieran en línea con la realidad de las expectativas de los fans. Entonces los «profesionales» entraron en acción.

On the one hand, the new Legacy collection is based on the aesthetic codes of the sixties; on the other hand, the Accutron DNA and Spaceview 2020 series reproduce the innovative spirit of the time, with a new caliber that works with electrostatic energy. Can you walk us through the R&D behind these models?

The research began ten years ago, on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Accutron.

We didn’t just want to relaunch a design, we wanted to create a caliber that would stay true to the electronic precision of the 1960 model while offering true innovation. From a technical point of view, the development was quite a feat: the electrostatic motor was miniaturized enough to fit inside a watch, while conserving the amount of energy needed to power the model. This also explains the 44mm size of this series, as enough space is needed to accommodate such a high-performance movement, while still being absolutely portable. The Legacy collection, for its part, has dimensions closer to the models from the 60s and 70s that inspired it.

There have been numerous re-releases of “vintage” or “retro-futuristic” Perfect Fake Watches in recent years,

while the pre-owned segment has experienced significant growth. Who is the target audience for the new Accutron brand?

The target clientele is quite male and quite young, people between twenty and forty years old. That’s the best thing about this project: Back then, the Accutron was the watch of the new generation. And that’s still the case 60 years later, through this relaunch! We’re also launching a book, written by Jack Forster, highlighting this remarkable story,

and we’re launching a podcast that revives the “Americano” spirit that is so popular with the new generation.replica watches cheap

What has been the pandemic impact on this release?

We had planned to present the models at Baselworld, then at Couture, but ultimately thought it wiser to postpone the launch until this fall,

given the cancellation of these events and the evolving public health situation. The models will be sold through our retailers in all markets.

This is another point related to the launch of Accutron as a full-fledged brand: much more exclusive distribution. Some people were surprised by the price of the new products.

The objective is to offer a quality, technological and exclusive brand. With Accutron, we are no longer in the Bulova price range: it is a new adventure with its own distribution, its own identity and its own codes. And given the amount of R&D and technology infused into these new models, we think the prices are understated!

Spaceview 2020 & Accutron DNA: a revolutionary caliber

Relaunched as a brand in its own right, Accutron replica watches introduces an innovation that is (almost) as

amazing as the original: the world’s first electrostatic gauge. The power is created by twin turbines that rotate as a result of human movement at very high

speeds between two electrodes attached to the movement. The energy, stored in an accumulator, powers two motors;

the world’s first electrostatic motor that powers the fluid seconds hand and a stepper motor that powers the hour and minute hands. Synchronize both motors via IC to provide an accuracy of +/- 5 seconds per month.

Legacy: a wide range of reinterpretations
