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.

Over the years, INSTORE has won 80 international journalism awards for its publication and website. Contact INSTORE's editors at [email protected].

When Liquidation Is the Best Option, This Legendary Jeweler Chose Wilkerson

George Koueiter & Sons Jewelers, a 65-year old jewelry institution in Grosse Pointe, MI, had always been a mainstay in this suburban Detroit community. But when owners George and Paul Koueiter were ready to retire, they made the decision to close rather than sell. “We decided our best option to do the liquidation sale was Wilkerson,” says Paul Koueiter. The results, says George Koueiter, exceeded expectations and the process was easy. “Wilkerson just kept us in mind,” says George. “They never did anything without asking and whatever they asked us to do was just spot on.”
