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.).

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
