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].

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.”
