Accutron Officially Unveils World’s First Timepieces
Powered by Electrostatic Energy
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 introduces a new historical advancement in timekeeping – the world’s first watches powered by electrostatic energy.
After a decade of dedicated research and development, Accutron unveils the Spaceview 2020. Recreating the stunning visual impact of the original open dial design with the exact-same signature green accents with the all-new electrostatic energy movement, Accutron commemorates the Spaceview’s place in avantgarde
timepiece history. Born in an era of unparalleled risk-taking, the 1960s Accutron Spaceview was a landmark achievement and immediate sensation. By deconstructing the design of the outer case and exposing the state-of-the-art tuning fork movement, it transformed into the purest example of design integrity and technical excellence. Over time, it became an iconic masterpiece.
The new style boasts a stainless steel case and bezel on a fine black leather strap
Accutron unveils another collection powered by electrostatic movement, the Accutron DNA. This paradigm-shifting design carries the “genetic information” of the original Spaceview, then cleverly synthesizes it to make the Accutron DNA unique in every way. Reimagined for a new generation, it elevates the bar with modernist-minimal aesthetics mixed with sci-fi touches, yet still achieves a technical high-water mark. The collection’s four new styles feature open skeletonized movements that showcase the precision of the electrostatic energy drive and high-tech rubber straps with deployant closures, adding a sportier look.
