This Is the Watch Brand that Navy SEALs Prefer for Night Missions
Luminox A.N.U. series

The special ops force test-drove a variety of brands before settling on one.

Luminox has become the official licensee of the Navy SEALs after partnering with the special operations force for the last 20-plus years, the watchmaker announced.

In 2013, Luminox collaborated with active-duty and retired SEALs to develop a new series of watches with upgraded features. This partnership resulted in the A.N.U. (Authorized for Navy Use) series pictured here, which features a black PVD-plated stainless steel case with screw crown and case back, sapphire crystal, multi-jewel Swiss quartz movement, and a 10-year lithium battery.

“As a research, development, test and evaluation officer for the Navy SEALs, I was asked to find a dependable watch for night missions. After testing a variety of brands in the most arduous conditions, Luminox was the only one still functioning at the end of the evaluation,” says Nick North, Navy SEAL (Ret.).

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
