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.).

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
