Turning 63 on October 25th, Accutron kicks off its birthday festivities with participation at Windup Watch Fair this weekend and lighting up of the iconic Empire State Building on October 22nd, the same building in which the brand is headquartered, in Accutron’s signature green hue.


Known as the world’s first fully electronic watch, the Accutron tuning fork technology has been declared one of the most important innovations in the history of watchmaking. In 2020, with the same passion for innovation, design and groundbreaking technology, Accutron introduced a new historical advancement in timekeeping – the world’s first timepieces powered by electrostatic energy – and the reimagination of the brand’s most iconic historical timepieces.
