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.).

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
