Abt’s 2013 Time Boutique Trunk Show is going on this weekend, giving local watch aficionados and casual shoppers alike a chance to see some extraordinary watches. While the Time Boutique always stocks an impressive collection of luxurious watches at all price points, the Trunk Shows are our opportunity to show off some truly unique, often limited-edition timepieces. Top watch brands, like Raymond Weil, Movado, Ball, Rado, Hamilton and more send over exclusive models, and the Trunk Show is a great chance to get your hands—or wrist, rather—on one of these watches.
We’ve all been there, either personally or by way of a clumsy acquaintance. We’ve all felt the fate of the fumbled, fallen phone. Whether it falls just inches or goes accidentally flying forty feet in a freak unpocketing-gone-awry, the phone hits the ground with a gut-wrenching crash. You pick it up slowly, fearing the worst. If you’re lucky, it emerges unscathed, maybe receiving only a scratch, maybe just temporarily losing the battery cover. But many of us don’t suffer such good fortune. While Gorilla Glass and its ilk are impressively strong, sometimes the phone lands in just the right way to completely demolish the display of your precious companion.

Abt would like to take a moment to recognize the passing of not only a famous Chicago native, but a culinary artist. Charlie Trotter was exceptional when it came to developing unique foods and his restaurant, which was a Chicago staple, was the place to be for those who love food.
Abt Electronics was proud to team up with Mr. Trotter and the manufacturer Turbo Chef as it was featured in his restaurant “Charlie Trotter’s” as well as his own home for over 8 years. It was a partnership, we won’t soon forget.
