Watch and jewelry industry veteran Robert Sears Siragusa has died of COVID-19, watch journalist Roberta Naas writes at A Timely Perspective.

Siragusa was known for establishing Maurice Lacroix USA in the early 1990s.

“For 10 years he worked tirelessly to build the little-known Swiss watch brand into a success in the United States market,” Naas writes. “He was a smart marketer and an incredible person.”

After leaving the brand, she explains, he helped launch Beaudry Time with designer Michael Beaudry.

In the mid-80s, he founded Aurion International, a jewelry manufacturer.

Wilkerson Takes the Worry Out of Closing

MSG Jewelers has always treated its customers like family. When owner Mike George decided to retire and close the doors of his St. Louis, Missouri jewelry store, he selected a company to manage his going-out-of-business sale that treats its customers like family, too. That’s why he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson was able to do all the things that we needed,” says George. In the end, the bittersweet store closing was so much easier with Wilkerson at the helm. From marketing to pricing to inventory, Wilkerson does it all. “It’s a package deal,” says George.
