Accutron and Esterbrook.
The DNA is the same.
Two founders from across the Atlantic, settled in the Northeast.
Guided by ingenuity and the spirit of innovation, they both pursued excellence.
Their brands represented what was beloved about the past and the great possibilities of the future.
One manufactured watches, the other pens.
They both made history.
The Accutron made its debut in 1960.
It was launched during the Space Race, revered for its inventiveness, the heart of which was the tuning fork, powered by a one-transistor electronic oscillator circuit, making it one of the first electronic watches manufactured.
In 1858, entrepreneur Richard Esterbrook trademarked his pen company, which would soon become one of the biggest and most beloved pen makers in the world. At its height, Esterbrook was the largest pen manufacturer in the United States employing 600 workers.
Much of America’s history has been written and created with its pens. U.S. presidents Abraham Lincoln and Lyndon B. Johnson signed legislation with their Esterbrook pens. John F. Kennedy called for the United States to literally reach for the stars by signing documents that promised to land a man on the moon and bring him safely back to earth.
