New York, NY (September 28, 2021) – 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. Its original Spaceview design with metal tuning fork was a watch the likes of which no one had ever seen and which would go on to become an icon. To celebrate this design and the recent release of the Spaceview 2020 -- the world’s first watch powered by electrostatic energy -- Accutron unveils a limited collaboration with the similarly enigmatic and awe-inspiring Stave Puzzles, as a continuation of the brand’s alliance with other forward-thinking brands boasting rich American heritage and innovative expertise.
Stave Puzzles, of Norwich, Vermont handcrafts the world’s most luxurious wooden jigsaw puzzles, one piece at a time. Both brands are proud to unveil The Accutron Challenge, a clever benchmark puzzle design inspired by the iconic Spaceview with seven separate, fun challenges. One of the challenges includes a “Beat the Clock” multiple design puzzle, with the final products creating different colored Accutron timepieces. If you have time on your hands then this is the perfect puzzle for you.
Accutron has commissioned the finest craftsmen to create commemorative Accutron products that match the inventive craftsmanship of Accutron. Current partners include Hudson Whiskey, La Palina Cigars, and Esterbrook Pens.
